Middle School Electives Fair

On Friday, March 8, our Sixth and Seventh Grade students and teachers participated in our annual Electives Fair, enjoying a beautiful sunny day on Litow Patio as students learned about the wide range of elective courses to explore in the next school year.

The Fair is just one opportunity for Sixth and Seventh Grade students to ask questions and get to know new teachers as they consider our diverse palette of creative and challenging elective course offerings. We invite students to speak to their advisors or to visit the Middle School office with any questions about opportunities to delve deeper into current interests or to discover new ones in the coming year!

Ms. Roskowinski and Mr. Feldsher discuss theater craft and theory with inquiring students.

Ms. Russell introduces students to Technical Theater.

Students test out strings instruments with Ms. McLeod.

Ms. Levin-Katchinskiy and Ms. Yates share ceramics projects and hand out squishy clay to table visitors!

Ms. Hicks presents beautiful examples of past Visual Arts student projects.
