Future 7th Grade
Dear RMS Soon-to-be 7th Grade Families,
We all know the 2020/21 school year has been an adventure. And now that we have half a year at RMS done, its time to start thinking about next year!
As a 7th grader, your student will select a full year music class OR 2 semester long electives.
What’s different about your 7th grade schedule?
- Only your English and U.S. History 1 class will be blocked.
- Math Pathway Placement:
- 7th Grade Math, or
- Algebra 1 (for students who qualify and want this placement) *Information about the Algebra Aptitude Test date and placement qualification criteria will be sent to families by our Administrative Team in the near future.
- Health: All 7th Graders take one semester of Health, which means you will an option for two electives
Please have a discussion with your child about middle school and elective choice
As students enter 7th Grade, they seek increased independence, choice, and decision-making. We believe that our annual registration process provides an ideal opportunity for a conversation about electives that can support all of these growth areas. We encourage you to invite your child to have a conversation where they can be the expert about middle school, talk about their future 7th grade self, and express what elective they are most excited about and why.
This year registration will be happening on Skyward. Counselors will be coming into Science classes to help students choose which Electives they want to take for the 2021/22 school year.
