Red Oak Junior High held its electives fair for the incoming 7th graders March 24.

The event gave current 6th graders the chance to browse booths that gave information about the different elective courses. According to most 6th grade students, they are interested in taking either band, theater, journalism/yearbook or photography.

“I want to take either band or theater,” 6th grader Casey Condron said. “I am very excited to explore a new school.”

Teachers are also excited for the upcoming school year. They said they hope many students choose their electives.

“[The fair] went well, there were a lot of people there,” ROJH band teacher Chris Eaton said.  “I believe it helped some students change their minds for the better.”

Eaton hopes there will be more students in his elective next year, just as 8th grader Nathan Howton hopes there will be more students open to joining HADDIT.

“A lot [of students] were more interested [in HADDIT] after they talked to someone about it,” Howton said.

Overall, everyone is enthusiastic about the upcoming 2015-16 school year.

“[I think kids are going to have] lots of fun in theater [because it] welcomes creativity,” theater teacher Katrina Keener said.
