Incoming 7th Grade Course Selection Night and Immunization Clinic

Please Join Us for Incoming 7th Grade Course Selection Night and Immunization Clinic: Tuesday, January 23rd!

All current 6th grade students planning to attend Elk Ridge Middle School next year, please plan to join us in-person on Tuesday, January 23rd.  If you have neighbors who have been at a private or charter school, but you know want to attend Elk Ridge next year, please make them aware of our Course Selection night as well.

In order to have enough seats/computer space available, we ask, if possible, that only the incoming student and a guardian attend the session. Course Selection times are as follows:

  • 5:00- Last names A-G
  • 5:45- Last names H-M
  • 6:30- Last names N-Z 
  • 6:40- DLI & ALPS students and their parents only (you must have accepted placement at Elk Ridge Middle School prior to this night in order to select your courses. If you have not been given placement at Elk Ridge yet, you can still attend the Q&A session, but will not be able to request your courses).

This year we are doing something new! You and your student will enter your requests for the classes you hope to see in your schedule into Skyward. This will be accomplished in computer labs at Elk Ridge. Counselors, teachers, administration and Student Body Officers will be available that evening to help and to answer any questions you may have. Once you have entered your selections into Skyward, you will be required to fill out and turn in an official yellow cardstock copy of the Course Selection Card before the process is complete.

You can print a copy of the 7th Grade Course Selection Card and begin planning your requests. 

To help you understand the process you will be completing that night, you can view a step-by-step Course Selection Instruction Tutorial for how to enter your course requests in Skyward here .

A Few Important Notes:  You must know your student Skyward login and password to complete Course Selection. If you do not know these, please contact the school to receive them prior to Course Selection.

Course Selection is NOT first come, first served. All students who enter their course selections into Skyward and turn in an official cardstock Course Selection card will receive equal priority. Teacher staffing decisions are made based on these requests, so please choose classes that you can live with. Once Course Selection has been completed, schedule changes will only be made based on school and academic needs. 

If you are not able to attend your assigned session, please come to one of the first 3 sessions.  If you will be out of town or not able to attend that night, please stop by Elk Ridge and fill out and turn in an official yellow cardstock Course Selection card for your student. This will ensure that your student’s choices are included as we create our schedules for next year.

We will also be hosting an immunization clinic that night to help your student prepare to enter 7th grade. Make sure to bring your insurance card and photo ID if you plan to receive immunizations.

Pre-Registration / Course Selection

It’s time to start planning for next school year and telling us what you want. Much like visiting a restaurant, this is your chance to place an order and we’ll staff and build a schedule that supports your orders as best we can. To that end, Course Request cards for the 2024-2025 school year are now available to view on the course-selection page of our school website.

Please take time to review class options with your students. These choices are critical to the creation of a master schedule and having accurate numbers is very important to ensure class availability.

Class changes are very difficult to make once schedules are done so please make choices that you can live with. Teacher staffing decisions are made based on these requests.

Also available on the website are course descriptions and a slideshow (the dates are different than in the slideshow, but the information on selecting courses is the same) with important information about choosing classes for next year and how to fill out the card. You can also download a copy of the cards now if you want to get a head start.

Please note that classes submitted to skyward are course requests and do not reflect a final schedule. Schedules are not released until August 2024.

Please reach out to your assigned counselor with any questions or concerns.
