- Period 1 is the Multi-graded Elective and Period 5 (A/B Day) is the grade level elective.
- Study Skills is scheduled to occur daily when the multi-grade elective meets. Any Study Skills related questions should be discussed with In-Class Support Teacher and Child Study Team Case Manager.
- Please note that only elective courses listed on this form are offered to 8th graders.  
-If students auditioned and were found eligible for a CI Course, then the CI Courses will take precedence and added to a student's schedule over their original choices.

World Language
All students are encouraged to have exposure to World Language during their time at Glenfield.  World Language classes are optional during the elective period where a student's schedule allows for it.  Students can opt to take a World Language or another period of electives.  Students may continue on the 3 year World Language course sequence for French, Mandarin or Spanish; once selected, students must remain on the same 3 year World Language sequence. These language courses take place for the full year and occur on either A Day or B Day. In an effort to diversify our offerings, we also offer a semester-based World Language & Culture class during the Multi-grade elective for students that are unsure of which language to study or are unable to study a language at a different part of their schedule.  Please see our Course Catalog for descriptions.
CI Courses & Dance
Our CI elective courses take place during the traditional school day and have eligibility requirements. Students will be notified and scheduled for these courses, which will be reflected on final schedules.  If you have not already auditioned or submitted a portfolio for any of the following courses: CI Acting, CI Art, CI Chorus, CI Dance, and are interested in doing so, please contact the main office. Because these are audition based, if you auditioned and were accepted you will be placed in the class, schedule permitting. Families should still complete the Course Selection Sheet but placement into CI classes will take precedence over other choices, schedule permitting. 

Glenfield offers a variety of dance classes that will now be offered as electives during the 8th grade elective period.  All students are required to take Physical Education (PE) including one marking period of Health, therefore dance classes are taken in addition to PE.  
Full Year Multi Grade Electives *
The following courses will be offered during our multi-grade elective for the full year, unless otherwise specified. If you have been found eligible or are interested in auditioning for any of these courses, please indicate below.  If you are found eligible, you will automatically be scheduled for this course:
