Courses for middle school students include one elective, which meets daily during the regular school day. Report card grades are given for fine arts electives. Enrollment in fine arts electives is restricted by a number of factors, including enrollment limits in handbell choir, language, and speech. Because of this, second-choice electives will also be selected. Parents should watch for an email in late April to make the elective request for rising seventh- and eighth-grade students.

Class schedules for the new year are now available in NetClassroom, and families can view them if they have completed online check-in and if their accounts are up-to-date with the Business Office as of August 5. If you are unable to log in to NetClassroom, or if you've forgotten your credentials, please call the middle school office for assistance.
After logging in to NetClassroom, select the correct child's name from the drop-down list on the left side of the page (if you have more than one child) and then click on "Registration" in the menu bar. The schedule automatically appears as a list, which can be a little difficult to read. We recommend that you click on the "Grid" option over on the left side of the page for a clear view your child's school day.
Special note for 8th graders taking Honors Algebra in the high school: Your second semester math class will not appear in NetClassroom until Christmas vacation. Don't worry--you'll get to take math class second semester!
