Intermediate Band is a yearlong music elective open to students who have completed Fifth Grade Beginning Band or who have instrumental experience and/or a willingness to take private lessons.
Drama and Chorus
Drama and Beginning Chorus is a yearlong drama and music elective for sixth grade. Students will learn the basics to theatre and how to participate in a performance-based choral ensemble. Chorus students will learn about sight reading, key signatures, musical terminology and other musical elements as they perform music from different styles, genres and time periods. Chorus students will perform at several concerts for students and families throughout the year.

Study Halls and Learning Academy:
All sixth grade students will be in a study hall that meets two times in a seven-day rotation. Learning Academy Coaching takes the place of regular study hall rotations and is available for an additional fee. Coaching is designed for students in grades 5-8 to reinforce academic content and skills, test preparation, and organizational methods. If you would like to enroll your student in Learning Academy Coaching instead of regular study halls next year, please contact Kristen Allen for details at
