6th Grade Exploratory Wheel/PE/Music
Sixth grade students leave their core teachers for two periods per day. During these two periods, students fulfill the required Physical Education requirements from the state and explore the rich elective program here at JLS.
Exploratory Wheel: During one period, 6th-grade students sample courses in each of these areas, rotating through in five week blocks: Industrial Technology, Drama, Language Transfer, Computer Applications, Art, and Home Economics.
Physical Education/Music: During one period, 6th grade students spend alternate days in Physical Education and Music. The choices in Music include Beginning Woodwinds and Brass, Choir, and continuing instruction in String Orchestra or Band. Students are encouraged to continue with the instrument they started in the 5th grade. In P.E., the students are exposed to a wide variety of activities with the focus on skill development.
7th and 8th Grade Electives
A wide range of elective courses is offered at JLS, both year-long and semester-long, to 7th and 8th graders. For descriptions of all the current offerings, see the course catalog.
