Elective Scheduling for 8th Grade Going Into 9th Grade

Dear 8th Grade Parents,

The Scheduling Portal to make 2021-2022 elective choices will open on March 10th at approximately 10am and close on March 17th at 3pm. Please sit with your child and discuss their interests and abilities. Select courses that fulfill graduation requirements. Electives are based on availability so indicate your top five choices in order of importance.  **You must complete your elective selection in the portal before March 17, but it is not “first-come, first-served.**

For example, #1=Art, #2=Business Apps (Semester) and #2 Personal Finance (Semester), #3=Choir, #4=TV Production, #5=Programming

Students should meet with their counselor to review the requests made on Parent Portal. Be sure to select carefully because there are no elective changes after June 1st.

Here is the list of electives: 2021-2022 Electives

The program of studies describes all of the courses: Program of Studies

If you wish to change your child's recommended World Language, you must submit a written request to your child's middle school counselor. Available World Languages are: Spanish, French, Italian, Latin, Mandarin.  All beginning World Language courses are level one. No World Language changes will be honored after June 1. There are absolutely no changes to World Languages or electives in September.

If you have questions, please contact your current School Counselor directly.

Thank you,

Brian Glassberg, Supervisor of School Counseling
