A number of factors restrict enrollment in some electives, including classroom space and available equipment. Because of these factors, rising seventh and eighth graders will indicate their first through fourth choices on the form parents will receive via email in late April.
Elective opportunities for the 2017-2018 school year:
- Band (open to beginners; if new to the instrument, must be concurrently enrolled in instrument lessons)
- Chorus (divided by gender so meets every other day; on alternate days, students will take Digital LIteracy, Handbells, or SOAR®: Learning for Life)
- Digital Literacy & SOAR®: Learning for Life (self-paced online programs)
- Language (structured differently from this year's language classes--7th graders currently in language may select this as one of their electives again next year)
- Orchestra (by audition)
