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 where you get the opportunity to learn a new instrument, hang out with your friends, work as a team, put on amazing concerts and experience fun events! Learning to play a band instrument in middle school sets you up for being a part of the marching band in high school. To be in the band, you do not have to know how to read music or play an instrument. We will teach you everything you need to know! We can’t wait for you to be a part of the band!
