|Advisor Selection for Rising Ninth Grade Students|
For current eighth grade parents:
Next year, your son/daughter will meet several times each week with an advisor and advisory group of ninth grade students. The advisor's role is to support his/her advisee’s social, extracurricular and academic choices through the ninth grade; therefore, it is important that we match your child with an advisor who not only shares interests, but who will also provide excellent guidance for your child’s academic and extracurricular goals. To help us with the selection, please download
this form, complete, and return it to Mrs. Stevenson
by no later than Friday, May 22.
Thank you for taking care of this promptly,
Chris McNeil and Regina Assetta
Ninth Grade Head Class Advisors
