Dear 5th Grade Parents:
As we begin to plan for the 2018- 2019 academic year, all students are required to complete an Elective Preference Sheet. In grades 5 and 6, students must select an introductory level elective for next year.* Please discuss these elective courses from the list below with your child and write your preferences in the boxes located on the lower right.*If your child has taken Intro to Theater or Intro to Voice this year, and would like to continue next year, they are eligible to select the intermediate level of that course. 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 an introductory level elective, all students will be programmed for Physical Education. This course is geared to meet New York State Programming Requirements for grades 5 and 6. Therefore, students will automatically be assigned this course to meet this mandate. 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 5 Elective Preferences”. We request that all electives preferences be submitted to your child's homeroom teacher by Friday, May 11, 2018. If no preference sheet is submitted and/or 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
