8th Grade Scheduling

for 2016-2017

8th Grade Schedules

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 8th grade students take?


  1. Religion
  2. English
  3. Pre-Algebra
  4. Science
  5. World Geography
  6. Art (one semester) / Arkansas History (one semester)



Students will have 7 class periods next year, so they will choose one elective to complete their schedule. What are their elective choices?


  • Athletics (Basketball-please let the coaches know if you are interested in trying out)
  • Band - You must have experience/training playing an instrument
  • Drawing
  • Family & Consumer Science
  • Study Hall


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.


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. Course Registration Forms must be submitted by February 26.


I met with the students today during Religion class to talk about 8th grade, as well as getting ready for high school. The link to the presentation is below.


Many Blessings,
