Several 7th grade courses are prerequisites to

8th grade courses. In 7th grade, Beginning Art must be taken before Intermediate Art or Applied Arts and Crafts. Journalism requires an application that students pick up from their RELA teacher. Journalism I must be taken before a student can take Broadcast I and Journalism II. Theater I must be taken in 7th grade prior to Theater II. Exceptions to this is if your child wants to try out for Theater II they have to contact Mrs. Farmer and Mrs. Guseman to discuss the process. Intro to Spanish must be taken before Spanish I if the student does not have a 90 or above in Rela. Electives for High School Credit and their Prerequisites There are several courses that can be taken as an EIGHTH grader and you must take the

Rank in order 1 to 6, with 1 being the first choice and 6 being the 6th choice. There may be a conflict with another class that your child wants or the class may be full.

This means that one of the backup choices on the yellow card would be substituted for one of the elective choices listed. That is why it is SO important that your child list alternatives that they are interested in actually taking. What might a schedule look like? Period 1st Semester 2nd Semester 1 MathMath

Health Theater 7 BandBand Physical Education vs. Athletics PE provides an overview of several sports and activities. Some examples are bowling, soccer, and basketball. Athletics allows for the opportunity to compete against the other middle schools in track, basketball, and volleyball for girls and football for boys and girls. You DO NOT have to be in athletics to try out for a sport but if you make the team, your schedule WILL change for you to go into

athletics. A little more about athletics Athletics lasts the entire school year. All students in athletics are required to dress out in an RMS athletic uniform & appropriate shoes EVERY day. Athletics is for those who wish to compete and work hard EVERYDAY. We consider athletics an accelerated-accelerated PE class or Pre AP PE. The expectations and activities are intense. If your child does not make a team, he or she will be in off season. 7th grade athletics is 1st period. If your child is on the team, they must be ready to participate at 7:00 AM for football and 7:30 AM for

volleyball, basketball, and track. Boys Athletics Football 1st semester (athletics all year) *There are no tryouts for football and if you sign up for athletics for the year, you will play football.* Basketball Can move into the course in November if you try out and make the team. Track 2nd semester (Can take PE in the fall and move into Athletics in the Spring) Soccer-

RMS does have a soccer team for boys and girls, but it is not a class. It is a club sport that takes place after school hours usually sometime in April and May. Girls Athletics Volleyball Tryouts are at the first week of school. Basketball Tryouts are after volleyball season around the first of November Track - Track season begins after basketball is over around February

Girls who do not make the volleyball or basketball team will participate in Off-Season Track. What might a schedule look like if a student is in athletics? Period 1st Semester 2nd Semester 1 Athletics Athletics 2

Selecting athletics or PE on the course card Check ONE: ____ Boys Athletics all year ____ Boys PE (fall) & Boys Athletics (spring track) ____ Boys PE all year ____

Girls Athletics all year ____ Girls PE all year Placement Placement has been completed by teachers based upon their recommendations for continued student success When the selection card comes home: If you wish to make a change from PreAP to On-level, please make the change on the card and sign. If you would like to make a change from Onlevel to PreAP, please contact the teacher to discuss the change you would like to see.

Also, indicate the change on the card and sign. Teacher recommendation s are listed here. Off Campus PE Requires at least 5 hours of training, Monday-Friday. It does not include any training or games on Saturdays or Sundays. Students will select an additional elective in place of their school PE class. There is an application process in place, ending with approval at the district level. Parents can download the Off Campus PE forms on the district website. Processing requests for Off Campus PE for the upcoming school

year starts after spring break. The district recommends that the forms be turned into the counselor prior to May 9. If your child wants to do off campus PE and be on a Athletic team such as football, basketball or track for boys and volleyball, basketball or track for girls, they must take athletics at RMS since those sports require them to be in a class. Reading or Math Strategies If your child does not pass the Math STAAR and/or the Reading STAAR they will be placed in a strategies class. The strategies class will take the place of 2 one semester or one year long elective. The schedule may look like: Period 1st Semester 2nd Semester 1 Athletics

The verification sheet is not the same as a SCHEDULE. The verification sheet is just VERIFYING what your child is REQUESTING to have in their schedule.

If you see a class on the verification sheet that was not your childs top elective choices it is because there may be a conflict with another class that your child wants or the class may be full. This means that one of the backup choices on the yellow card would be substituted for one of the electives listed on the Verification Sheet. That is why it is SO important that your child list alternatives that they are interested in taking.
