Strong Middle School created an Advisory program in 2012 to support social and emotional learning in our community. This year it will meet weekly for an hour on Mondays to discuss a variety of academic, social and career topics. The Counseling Department develops a lesson plan that each Advisory teacher implements with their group of 17 to 18 students using feedback from teachers, students and the Second Step SEL curriculum. The smaller groups allow students to talk and share things they may not feel comfortable sharing in a larger class, while fostering connections with different adults in the building. Please contact the Counseling Department at Strong with any further questions.
