Middle School Electives

Students in grades 6th - 8th have the opportunity to participate in a variety of electives. Below is a sample of some of our
electives available. Please note that not all electives are available every semester. 

Music

STAGE:  Stage is a class focused on performing.  The class activities vary, but in the past have included introductory acting and singing techniques, improve games, and learning guitar basics.  Students in the Stage elective perform in the Christmas program in December and in the middle school musical in March.

GREAT COMPOSERS:  This class uses the award-winning “Meet the Great Composers” series.  Students learn about the lives, times, and music of history’s greatest composers and listen to concerts of their works.

BAND: Through participation in the band elective students learn to play a concert band instrument, read standard musical notation, and perform as a member of the band. Students take a 25-minute small group lesson in addition to the weekly band elective. HPCS contracts with the Overture Band Programs, Inc. for instruction, and there is an additional tuition. You can visit the Overture Band Programs website for more information about the program.

Photography

The students will learn the fundamentals of digital photography; how to take better pictures and editing techniques. We will be taking and editing pictures in class, but there will also be homework. There will also be a final project/portfolio.

Woodworking

Students will learn basic tool use and safety as well as how to measure and plan a project. Each student will make a wooden kitchen utensil and a wooden box. Other projects of the students’ choice can be built if the first two are completed.

Design Zone

Where math and art collide! Each week you will learn new techniques to draw different geometric designs using a circle compass and a ruler. After mastering these techniques you will use your creativity to map out a final design by the end of the semester.

Organized Sports

This elective is designed to give students the opportunity to experience healthy competition through a variety of sports and fitness activities and modified games such as flag football, soccer, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, basketball, badminton, and softball.

Missions Possible

Missions Possible is a mission support system. We will be fundraising, praying, serving in our community and sending a Missions team to Miami in February.
