Electives

Dear Parents,

Please sit down with your child(ren) and select your first, second, and third choices for your child’s electives.  Please make sure to select their choices for both Monday/Tuesday and then Thursday/Friday.  Please note that we will do our best to accommodate your child’s request, but electives are selected first by eighth grade, then seventh, and finally sixth.  Students will have an opportunity to switch electives at the end of each trimester as long as they are not in a yearlong commitment (Coding/Web Design, Choir, or Drama).  Students will receive their elective placements on the first day of school.  We look forward to a wonderful school year!
