TA (TEACHER ADVISORY): On Monday, students attend a half hour period called Teacher Advisory which serves three purposes: it is the time where we conduct all school business (announcements, voting, etc.); where short lessons on civility and citizenship are taught (e.g. respect, honesty, dealing with bullying, study skills, etc.); and where teachers can help students check their grades, and run off missing assignments, etc. Currently, a small group of students who are struggling in math are assigned to a special Math TA (there is one for 7th, 8th, and 9th grades) where the math teacher works on math whenever possible.
