It's about time for students to choose their elective courses in the upcoming school year. My daughter came to talk to me about her options: (1) continue to take French which qualifies for one credit or (2) take 5 courses with a quarter credit each. She preferred taking 5 courses with a quarter credit each. She stated that she could continue French in high school anyway. This would be a good opportunity for her to explore more in her last year of middle school. She was thinking of taking wood-working, robotics, creative writing, art and design, drawing and painting. I told her to choose whatever she liked. It would help her to learn what she really likes and what she would like to study in the future.
