The vision of NP3 K-12 is to inspire, cultivate, and support innovative educational excellence every day. In doing so, our goal is to personalize the middle school experience ensuring that all students and parents are known. Relationship building is at the core of who we are and we strive to make sure no student falls through the cracks.
Advisory is a 40 minute class that occurs four times weekly. Each student is assigned an Advisory teacher that is also one of their content teachers. It is this teacher’s job to know each Advisee well and to build a trusting relationship. The Advsior also follows Advisee academic progress closely. Advisors are a bridge between school and home and is there to help the support the student through their middle school years.
The Advisory teacher emails home weekly, helps to communicate student scores, facilitates goal setting and provides organizational support. They also plan for student led conferences with families three times annually. Within the class, the teacher works with students on a variety of project-based learning experiences such as Career or College Fairs, provides team building opportunities and infuses anti-bullying concepts into lessons. Grade level teams target themes such as cultural diversity, career/college readiness, and kindness throughout the year.
Please feel free to contact your student’s Advisory teacher anytime. It is what they are there for and can point you in the right direction.
