Individual Learning Plans (ILPs)
ILPs (individualized Learning Plans) help us as a team (learner, family, Guide) to develop learning goals and social emotional goals for the school year. Together we talk about how our personal strengths and challenges can be the tools that help us reach those goals. ILPs are September 13th, 19th, 20th, and 27th. Your Advisor will send more information about signing up.

NEW EVENT — Community Nights!
We will be inviting different members from our community to be on campus every second Thursday of the month. This event is for learners and their families. We will keep you updated with more information as we get closer to our first Community Night on September 12th!

Message from the Director

Dear Families,

We had such an INCREDIBLE first week together. As a new person on campus, I loved meeting so many new people. Thank you also to our staff for the time and energy you put toward building your Advisory Families, so that our learners could really get to know one another in a fun and engaging way!

We have been diligently working on developing relevant and interesting workshops this year that relate to our learners. In addition, we are offering a variety of learner designed clubs, ASB, basketball, volleyball, and community partnerships. Academic workshops are offered Monday-Thursday throughout the day so that we can best support our learners with their classes and projects. 

In addition, we would love to see learners on campus on Fridays to interact with the variety of awesome community members that will be joining us. Although not required, WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU EVERY DAY!

Advisory: Why, Who, and How

empower generations

WHY

Advisory is the hub of who we are and provides an opportunity to support personal growth and build relationships. This year, we will build upon FOUR PILLARS: Learn to Learn, Learn to Love, Learn to Collaborate, and Learn to Live. Each month we will focus on one pillar with a variety of activities. Last week, Advisories spent time together learning about self, learning about one another and learning about their communities through games, team building activities and creating a “common space piece” that is now displayed in our Village.  

WHO

Here are our 7 advisory groups!  

  • Mr. Rob and Campfire Clout
  • Ms. Tanya and La Familia
  • Ms. Jeanette and The Soul Catchers
  • Ms. Steph/Ms.Tori/Ms. Elayne and the Strong Unique Moms
  • Ms. Sheba/Ms. Danielle and The Successful Learners
  • Ms. Jenna and The Little Rascals 
  • Ms. Rachael Hustle Headquarters

HOW

Every learner has their Advisor and Advisory that meets Monday-Thursday from 10:30-11:30 a.m. You learner’s Advisor will be their academic accountability partner for all classes, be their advocate if they need anything, and help them reach their goals for the year. We hope to see them there as much as possible.

Master Agreements (MAs) 

Please make sure to check your email and sign your Master Agreement.  See Ms.Tori if you have any questions.

My name is Mrs. Scott; I am okay with Mrs. S. or Mrs. Shaana as well. I am excited about being your Professional Guidance Counselor! I look forward to working closely with learners in the areas of personal, social, and academic development. My goal as a counselor is to assist learners with overcoming barriers that may prevent students from achieving academic success! This is my second year being a Counselor and I love every moment of it! I am looking forward to a great year. I will have a Google classroom up and running soon, so please look out for updates.
