The Electives Classes you get to pick. Select (4) four electives that you want in the order of your preference. # 1 being the one you want most. We will try to accommodate your choices in your order of preference. However, all electives are subject to availability.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION PE is a requirement for all Middle School Students in each grade level, per Senate Bill 610. A PE waiver must be turned in along with your subject selection sheet if you DO NOT want to have PE as part of your schedule for the next school year. The waiver must be signed by your parents and returned no later than March 26, 2009 along with your subject selection sheet. All students will be registered for PE unless this waiver is on file, and therefore, you may lose your elective preferences. If you do not bring a waiver, then make sure to put PE as option 1 and specify which PE.
