As spring rolls around, students begin to ponder what courses they will be taking the following school year. At the end of February, teachers begin to recommend students for their future courses based upon students’ grades, work ethic and future ambitions.

Teacher recommendations help give students a basis of what they need to enroll for the following year. Students can overrule teacher’s recommendations with a parent signature, but it is not recommended.

This year, it is very important students select their classes carefully. Next year, students will not be allowed to modify their schedules if they are placed in their top choices based on their completed registration form this year. This has been put into place to reduce the amount of schedule changes that occur at the start of each school year.

To help students decide their courses, an elective fair will be provided on Wednesday, March 7 and Thursday, March 8 during all lunches in the Commons. Students will be able to explore the many classes offered; each class will have a table providing information about the course. Students should also be provided with an online course offering booklet for further information.

“The elective fair helps to give students a chance to see what electives they can take,” sophomore Zoe Simon said. “It can [expose them to] ones they may not even know about.”

Students will receive information regarding registration for the 2018-19 school year in English classes sometime during early March.  Students will apply for classes online, once registration closes students will meet with their guidance counselor to finalize their schedules for the following school year.

It is the guidance department’s goal to have registration completed before spring break.

“[Registration] is an exciting time, you get to choose your fun electives, but it’s [also] nerve-racking because its hard to decide what levels courses to take” senior Peyton Staunton said.
