Elective Interest Survey for Current Grade 6 and 7 Students

To Grade 6 and 7 Parents-

Today, your child will bring home a paper showing the elective courses we hope to offer in the Middle School next year.  This sheet is an interest survey, so that we can know how many sections of the various electives we should plan to offer.  We have already explained the interest survey to the students in an assembly.

Our elective program does require that students make choices, and some may struggle to decide the best options.  Please keep in mind that these are only choices for next year and different choices may be made in following years.  Also, I would recommend that students who play a musical instrument continue to make that a priority in their elective preferences.

This interest survey is due back to homeroom teachers on Feb 22.  This is just an interest survey and you will have an opportunity to confirm or change your preferences in April or May.

Even if you do not plan for your child to attend ISB next year, please complete and return the form.  It will still help us to plan appropriately based on student interests.

Please ask your child about the sheet and look it over carefully.  If you have more questions, I recommend you attend the MS Parent Coffee this Wednesday, Feb 20, at 8:30am in the MPR.  Or you may email me at jhill@isb.bj.edu.cn.

Thanks for your attention to this.
