For the 2011-2012 school year, we've redesigned our electives program in order to offer more classes with more focus. Briefly, our 7th and 8th grade students will still have the opportunity to choose from a variety of classes, only this year they will be organized into three tracks: The Arts, 21st Century Learning, and Leadership. Students are required to take one class within each track, but after that can choose to pursue classes in any of the tracks. Over the next few posts, I will preview some of the classes we will be offering within the elective program. We are excited about the opportunities these classes provide to our students.
