Electives

Bear River’s Monday elective classes is an optional day for our students. If a family decides not to attend on Mondays you will need to check with your student’s teacher for alternate assignments.

Bear River’s TK-3rd-grade students have elective classes on this day and are dismissed at 12:30. The TK-3rd-grade students do a rotation of electives with their teacher. Musical Theater is an option for our TK-3rd graders, but they do need to audition to be apart of this class. They do not have classes in the afternoon and need to be picked up at 12:30 p.m. every Monday.

Bear River’s 4th-8th Grade students attend their Core classes in the morning and then rotate through two electives in the afternoon. Below you will find our 1st-semester electives choices with a short description of the class.
