The Advisory Program provides early adolescents with the stability needed for them to cope with the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical changes experienced during the middle school years. The purpose of the program is to provide a point of security for every student in the school environment by building a positive relationship with at least one adult who is known as the advisor. The advisor, usually the homeroom teacher, helps to make sure students are getting a good start each morning.


In addition to daily homeroom contact, the students meet with their advisor and the advisory group approximately twice a month. During these advisory periods, the advisor leads discussions with the group about topics that concern school life such as: achieving success, making friends, improving peer relationships, respecting self and others, building character, exploring career choices, and making good decisions at the middle school. The advisory program systematically supports each student through a series of planned activities as s/he experiences the transition from childhood to adolescence.


The administration supports and encourages all efforts to ensure that our Advisory Program is an integral component of Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School.  In order for you to participate in this fundamental program, please consult the links to calendars in the buttons below.
