Grades 6-8 scheduling information now available

Scheduling information for students in grades 6-8 for the 2021-2022 school year will be sent home in January. Please see the following key dates below:

6th Grade Students Moving to 7th Grade

  • January 22 —Deadline for course selections form to be returned to the Counseling Office.

LOTE Selection for Sixth Graders

Sixth-grade students will view videos made by our LOTE teachers on Wednesday, Jan. 13. Parents and guardians are encouraged to view the LOTE videos as well. The videos can be accessed within the Resources folder in the Scheduling Information folder on our Schoology page. These videos will provide information to you as you help your child select a language to begin studying as a seventh grader. Please note that the language selection is a two-year commitment – students will study the language selected for both seventh and eighth grade.

Music Selection for Sixth Graders

Sixth-grade students may choose to join Wellwood Chorale as a seventh grader. This class does not conflict with Band or Orchestra so students can continue to participate in an instrumental ensemble as well.
