Electives for Grades 6-8
Students in grades 6-8 will participate in A day-B day semester-long electives for the 2021-2022 school year. This means that each semester they will have one elective, which meets every Monday and Wednesday and another elective, which meets every Tuesday and Thursday. On Fridays, students do not have elective classes. Students in grade 6 take electives together. Grade 7 and 8 students are in class together.
Students, with parent approval, rank their preferences and then are placed in a class according to their choices. Students in 8th grade are given priority when filling classes. Every effort is made to place students in the elective of their choice; however, this is not always possible.
Examples include: Forensics, Latin Dance, Behind the Scenes, Studio Art, Photography, Intramural Sports, Engineering Breakouts, Band, Robotics, Classroom Assistant, etc.)
