11th Grade Scheduling
It is time to plan for Junior Year!
Every year at this time, we start planning for the next school year. As a part of that process, I meet with students to talk about their classes for next year, and parents fill out the Course Registration Forms. These forms are very important in helping us plan and put together the master schedule, as well as individual student schedules, for the 2016-2017 school year.
What required classes do the 11th grade students take?
- Algebra II
- Oral Communications
- U.S. History
Students will have 7 class periods next year, so they will choose two electives to complete their schedule. What are their elective choices?
BUSINESS EDUCATION ELECTIVES--
- Computer Applications
- Accounting I
- Accounting II
- Computer Programming
- Web Design - Multimedia (Prerequisites--Computer Applications)

Course Descriptions can be found on my Counselor Webpage, https://sites.google.com/a/sjbulldogs.org/mrs-breeding-s-counselor-webpage/. The classes are separated by department/subject on the left toolbar.
11th grade students also have the opportunity to apply for the Honors Status Program. Applicants should have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 and subject area GPA of 3.5. More information about the Honors Status Program can be found on my Counselor Webpage, https://goo.gl/uAKPnV.
New this year--the Course Registration Form for 2016-2017 is a Google form! Simply click on the link below, complete the form, and submit. The Honors Status Program Application is Section 2 of this Google Form. Course Registration Forms must be submitted by February 26.
I met with the students today during English class to talk about 11th grade. The link to the presentation is below. Each 11th grade student will also have an Advisory Meeting with me over the next couple weeks. This meeting will give us a chance to look at graduation requirements, discuss career and college plans, and go over their transcript. It is a great time for them to ask questions as well.
