MS/HS Advisory focus is one of creating a positive culture.

Student activities provide opportunities to learn more about their peers, and like today, the staff! In Advisory teams, students played a Kahoot where the questions showcased the staff.

Examples: How many staff members were born in Des Moines? How many had a feline as their high school mascot? How many said their mom or dad was their inspiration? What candy bar does the majority of staff like?

Taking time to learn about each other builds a stronger positive connection not only to each other but their school!

Congrats to Ms. Wells and Mr. Helm’s Advisory on winning the Kahoot!!
