5th Grade Parents,

We are excited to begin programming for the 2017-18 school year. Below is a link to our Responsive Hour Registration process. Please take some time to indicate your child’s interest by selecting the appropriate course.

Please remember that core courses (Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science) and ALB (Active Learning Block) courses will be scheduled for all students. This includes our Advanced Math and Advanced Language Arts courses.

The registration process is only for our Responsive Hour for each grade level. The primary decision includes whether your child is interested in one of our music options of Band or Choir. All students not interested in a music option will be programmed into trimester courses offered by our ALB teachers. Also, please remember that all students needing support in Language Arts and/or Math will be assigned additional support during our Responsive Hour.

Thank you for visiting with your child and providing a response through the google form at the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/i4HWNmNlAojoDNri2.

This link is also available on our school web page, found under the 2017-18 Registration tab. Printed forms will also be available in the Middle School West office.

Students will choose from the following options:

1. Band (full year)

2. Choir (full year)

3. Band and Choir (full year/rotated days)

4. Trimester Courses (students will be assigned three of the four listed courses)

i. Fitness Frenzy

ii. Exploring 2D and 3D Art

iii. Music Through Time

Please call Melanie Chapman, our Guidance Counselor, at 763-497-4524 if you have any questions about the registration process. We hope to have the registration process completed by Friday, May 19th. Any registrations not received will initially place students in our Trimester Course option.
