Dear 7th Grade Parents:
As we begin to plan for the 2018-2019 academic year, all students are required to complete an Elective Preference Sheet. Next year, students in grade 8 who are participating in our Science Regents program will receive one elective. However, all other 8th graders will receive two electives. Please discuss these elective courses listed below with your child and write your preferences in the boxes located on the lower right. If your child wishes to take part in any of the major Performing Arts electives, he/she should have auditioned for these classes. Auditions were held in February/ March. Acceptances into the major elective courses are by audition or teacher recommendation only. We will do our best to grant your child his/her first choice; however, the scheduling of major academic subjects and the fulfillment of New York State Middle School requirements take precedence over any student selected elective course.
In addition to receiving these electives, all students in grade 8 will continue to receive Physical Education and the foreign language course that they began this year. Therefore, please indicate that language in the box on the lower right corner of this form.
Lastly, upon completion of this sheet, please visit our school’s website to complete the digital version of this document. Kindly, click on the link entitled, “Grade 7 Elective Preferences”. We request that all electives preferences be submitted to your child's homeroom teacher by Friday, May 25, 2018. If no preference sheet is submitted and the digital form is not completed, your child will be given any course that has available seats.
Ms. J. Smith, PrincipalMs. M. James, Assistant Principal
