6th Grade Electives
6th graders have the option between the arts rotation (art, drama, multimedia and choir), band or orchestra for their elective.
Band and Orchestra are yearlong commitments with varying performances and practice requirements.
The arts rotation consists of three - 12-week introductory classes with practices, performances and supplementary requirements.
- Make your choice wisely as changing from band or orchestra to the arts rotation is not guaranteed or encouraged after students have been scheduled.
