Elective Choices for 2021-2022

Current 6th and 7th grade students will have visits with our school counselors Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. McMahon to learn more about the elective offerings at Edendale next year. The presentations will take place on Wednesday, April 21st at the end of their advisory class. We will offer the following classes next year:

* Orchestra * Band * English Language Development (ELD)

* Intro to Music * Drama * Leadership

* Guitar * Advanced Drama

Students who are designated as English Learners will continue to take ELD courses. Drama is a prerequisite for Advanced Drama and students who select Leadership will need to complete an application.

There will be a Google Form Elective Choices students will complete. On it, they should select their first, second and third choice for courses. Please be sure to discuss the elective choices with your students before they submit the form. Forms will be due Friday, April 23rd.
