During Black History Month, Orchard Middle School Students Sent Daily Emails to The Community
The Orchard Middle School observed Black History Month by sending out a photo and caption on each of the 28 days of February to the greater MS community. The 24 middle school advisories are tasked with crafting the captions.
What is MS advisory?
The Orchard School believes students thrive and succeed when they feel a sense of connectedness, efficacy, safety, and independence. Orchard’s middle school advisory program provides each middle school student with a sense of connectedness. Each advisory has an advisor, a grade level teacher, and approximately 10 students. Advisories work through a variety of team building activities, such as initiatives on Orchard’s ropes course, canoeing, camping, and other challenge activities, to create a safe space where social-emotional learning and academic mentorship takes place. Advisories meet each morning and at various times throughout the week. Advisors are the main liaisons between home and school and play the role of information distributors, mentors, coaches, cheerleaders, and advocates.
