Building Community at OCS

Groups at OCS- Also called CCC for Community Connection Circle

Advisory group/class is a place where our 5-8th grade students and their advisor come together as a family to share, to play, and to develop and enhance the well-being of the students. It is characterized by a sense of freedom and fosters a sense of belonging.

Why Advisory Groups

  • Strengthens connectedness at the middle level.
  • Advocates suggest a direct link between a student’s emotional and social experience and academic achievement.
  • Promotes self-esteem.
  • Research shows that advisory students are less likely to drop out and have a low incidence of substance abuse.

Overall Goals of Advisory

  • Support all students in being successful academically, socially and personally.
  • Foster a sense of belonging (in the group and the school).
  • Foster a sense of self in each student and a sense of community.
  • Throughput the school year advisory class should be working toward the ability to function as a huge listening group: attentive, appreciative of other’s individual uniqueness, helpful, caring.

 

Minecraft Picture Board

The theme for 5th grade Advisory/CCC is ”Minecrafting our way through Middle School.” Students were to create their own Minecraft character using words, or items that describe who they are. It was a way for students to get to know each other during their first few sessions of Advisory/CCC.
