Thanks to everyone who contributed to our AMAZING feast yesterday. We were all fully satiated and very much enjoyed the opportunity to enjoy a meal - and each other - together.
Today we started working on our advisory "quilt" -- a 3 x 3 paper quilt with a square for each member of the advisory. After some planning and discussion, we decided to each create unique squares, but to weave in a common element or theme.
Students worked on a first draft of their quilt squares while one-on-one interim conferences were going on. Each student reflected back on their initial goal for the year, assessed progress, and made plans for continuation. We will check in again at the end of t
The Amaral/Rajacich advisory team was challenged by the Lang/Frederick//"LeMac" advisories to a rousing game of Pictionary this afternoon. Much fun was had by all ... it was a real close game. Victory was defined by a margin of one - sadly, not in our favor.
Mr. McIntyre wonders if we want a rematch?
Happy Monday, Advisees!
This week is National Line Dance week! I’ve collected a few examples for us to try. Here's the first one:
We celebrated National Cheese Pizza day today with our Advisory buddies in Mrs. Rajacich's Advisory. Much fun was had by all.
After a filling lunch of pizza, ginger ale and fabulous conversation we took time to discuss our plans for our community service work for the year. We are excited to continue our relationship with the residents at the Dixon House and have lots of ideas to present to them for feedback.
We take no time to mess around in the Amaral Advisory -- we just jump right in. To celebrate National Waffle Week this morning, we made fresh waffles (with maple syrup!) during our advisory meeting.
A note about upcoming events -- Thursday is National Cheese Pizza Day (I know ... who could have planned that one better?) so we have decided to order pizza for advisory lunch that day.
We are off to a GREAT start -- advisees have already chosen jobs and responsibilities, we've distributed supplies and reviewed schedules, and we have an awesome vibe in the group. It's going to be a PHENOMENAL year ... I just know it!
We started off by working on our first project together -- a giant poster/get well card for our Amaral Advisory Alum, Brandon. It's still a work in progress, but look for the finished product to be posted soon.
YEA!!!! The new directory has arrived!
I would like to extend an official Amaral Advisory welcome to our newest members: Tyler, Helen, Rex, Maggie and Sarah. We are so glad you are joining us.
Yipee! Yipee! Yipee!
Now, enjoy the rest of your summer and I'll see you soon! ~Ms. A.
