All 8th grade students will have 7 class periods. ELA, Math, US History, Physical Science, PE, Enrichment Wheel and one chosen elective. Read the elective choices and descriptions below and select your top 4 choices. We will attempt to schedule you into the elective of your choice but need options in case certain classes that are chosen are not offered. We base elective classes on student interest and teacher availability. The core classes are chosen for you based on teacher recommendation, FSA scores and end of year grades. All Advanced Courses will require you to meet the criteria for the course. Students that score Level 1 or 2 on the FSA will be placed in Intensive Reading or Intensive Math. If both Intensive Reading and Intensive Math are required, those classes will replace the elective choice, enrichment wheel or PE. We are excited to offer the Enrichment Wheel this year. Students will rotate through four 9 week long classes designed especially for 8th grade students to introduce our high school academies. Classes will be revealed at a later date.
Courses marked HS will appear on the students High School transcript. Be sure you are willing to commit extra time and effort in these courses.
