September 2018 lessons:

Obstacle Course - Students worked collaboratively to travel through an obstacle course using only the directions/guidance of their peers.

Goal Setting - At the start of each school year, students in all four grades are asked to write two S.M.A.R.T. goals (one academic in nature and one other goal). They meet one-on-one with their advisor at this point. They will then assess the progress made toward achieving these goals during a mid-year conference and again at a year-end conference with their advisor. 


 October 2018 lessons:

"Actions and Consequences" - Students discussed the concept of actions and resulting short- and long-term consequences in school and out of school. 

PSATs - Students took the PSATs during the school day.
