Students in Advisory

During Friday’s Advisory, students at Middle School South participated in different activities across grade levels to build self management skills.  Sixth grade discussed how social media affects their daily lives and worked on strategies to connect with others in safe and appropriate ways.   Seventh grade discussed peer pressure and demonstrated strategies on how to resist it through role playing activities.  Eighth grade watched Vernon Hills High School VIP (Voices in Prevention) students perform skits that addressed common problems that arise in high school.  Students were also able to ask questions related to transitioning to high school at the end of the presentation.
