Advisory Survey for Students - please collect and return to Guidance (thanks!)

This is the final meeting with your Advisory so this is more of a wrap-up session. Some suggestions:

  1. Bring food or allow the students to bring in food
  2. Ask them about their sophomore year. What would they do differently next year? What was the biggest lesson they learned this year? Favorite classes? Favorite extra-curricular activities? 
  3. Play "Heads Up" with them - this game can be downloaded to your iPhone (if you have one). It's the popular game from Ellen's TV show and the students usually enjoy playing it.  You can have groups go against each other.
