Select your P.E. or Sports class. Only choose ONE. Put a check mark by the appropriate class (boys or girls).
Do NOT start filling out the next section on your course sheet yet. 7th graders will get ONE elective besides their P.E./Sports elective for a total of 2. Fine Arts Requirement: All students are required to take one year of fine arts (art/band/choir/theatre) during middle school. If you are in multi-media this year, you will need to select a fine arts class this year or next year. Elective course descriptions can be found on the back side of the course sheet, and there are video descriptions on the HMS website under the Parent and Student tabs. All electives are offered on a limited basis due to class size restrictions. Electives that require an application and selection process: 1. Broadcast Media I (school news) 2. Honors Art (available if you are in art this year) 3. Yearbook (should enjoy writing/technology/photography and be able to commit some time outside of the school day to attend school events) Applications are due to Mrs. Schneider (located in Ms. Gipson’s old office) by Friday, March 14 th (the Friday before Spring Break).
Rank your top three choices and number them 1 through 3 with “1” being your first choice on your course sheet now. If you are selected for an application elective, your schedule will be changed this summer. We will use the rankings you put down on this course sheet to determine which class to drop for application electives OR if your 1 st choice elective is too full.
