6th Grade Electives

In sixth grade all students will have ONE elective choice. We invite you to explore the information below before you complete your choice of subjects.


Mann BandBAND is an elective that allows you to learn to play an instrument, to create music with others, and to be a part of something bigger than yourself. Starting band in middle school is a great way to be a part of the marching band in your high school someday, too. It’s hard work, but it is FUN!
