ASK YOUR CHILD ABOUT ADVISORY
Each month, your child will have one or two extended homeroom periods for "Advisory." During this time, homeroom teachers follow a grade-appropriate curriculum focused on character development. LCJSMS has identified six pillars of character for this curriculum: Citizenship; Respect; Caring; Fairness; Trustworthiness; and Responsibility.
Part of what makes these meetings successful is the PTO's contribution of bagels and juice for all students. Thank you to all the parents who have contributed to the PTO and support this important program!

6th Grade: Overcoming Stereotypes/No Name Calling Week (Respect pillar)
