Elective Sign-Ups

Before the start of school, incoming 6th grade students (other than those in the Modern Media and Communications Magnet) can submit their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd elective choices for 6th grade using the Elective Preference Form.

The counselors try to accommodate each student's preferences, although not everyone can have their first choice.

If you have questions about 6th grade electives, contact 6th grade counselor Ms. Gonzales.
