If you double up in math, list the second math class as your first elective choice. Please see the next slide to get a better understanding of what math class you will be placed in.

Step Six: Select a PE Course Bubble in the course you would like to take to fulfill your PE requirement. If you play a specific sport you may request to have it scheduled during your 4 th block by selecting “Fit 1 Athletic” however there is no guarantee that you will be given a space.
Step Seven: Select your alternate classes Electives are courses that you get to choose based on your interests and goals. They can be classes needed for college entrance or classes that offer content that is interesting to you. Students are required to have at least 5 elective classes to graduate. Although most of the time the master schedule allows for students to have their first choice in electives, students are not guaranteed to get scheduled into the elective classes of their choice. Choosing enough classes for counselors to use to create a schedule is critical. List your elective choices in priority order. We will work from choice number 1 down to choice 10 until you have a full schedule.
Remember: Initial here if you are requesting honors. Sign your form and have your parents sign it once you have discussed your course choices. Students who have forms signed by parents get priority if courses are overenrolled
