PGHS Advocacy Lesson Portal
Advocacy is a class period held every Thursday from 10:32 - 11:02 implemented to ensure our students receive district mandated information, digital citizenship expectations, non-cognitive readiness skills, and school-wide implementation of our school expectations, events, and student and teacher acknowledgements.
It used to be known as HOMEROOM! Students stay in the same advocacy class for the duration of their high school career. The advocacy teacher will read each student's name at their graduating ceremony! Our vision is that all students are able to establish positive and productive relationships with their advocacy teacher and classmates and feel connected to the PGHS community.
The Pleasant Grove High School community will challenge all students to excel in an academically rigorous setting where they establish and achieve individual goals, communicate effectively, and interact respectfully and responsibly as the prepare for the future.
