IRVINGTON, N.Y.T -- Irvington Middle School students are part of a new program, Advisory, which addresses the social-emotional learning needs of students and builds stronger connections among members of the school community.
“One of the overall goals of the Advisory program is to have each student develop ties with fellow students and a staff member in an environment that allows for discussion and dialogue on important topics,” Assistant Principal Allyson Daley said.
Students in grades six through eight became familiar with the pilot program on Feb. 4. The first of four sessions for the remainder of the school year was held on Feb. 9. Staff members and students participated in small group activities designed to promote the yearlong theme of building connections.
“Thank you to the staff and students for making the launch of this new and exciting program a terrific success,” Daley said.
