Advisory at Prairie Ridge


Advisory Purpose

Prairie Ridge seeks to ensure that all students feel there is at least one adult at PR who they can trust and talk to if needed.

The advisory block of time in the student’s schedule is in the same place as last year, but we have re-set the purpose of advisory.  Our purpose in advisory is to intentionally create a positive school culture that welcomes all members of our school community.  It also provides time and processes for advisors to assist in goal setting and self-management skills and strategies to aid students in academic and behavioral growth and independence.  With these goals, each advisor will have the ability to share with parents and families a holistic view of their student, so that we are able to be more supportive of all student needs.  The student-teacher relationship has an incredible impact on student learning and based on student perception data from last spring, we needed to have a clear purpose for our advisory time.
