Grade 8 Class Registration

Eighth-grade OMS students follow an 8-period daily schedule comprising required and elective classes. Some classes convene daily, while others alternate days. Additionally, certain classes run for the entire school year, while others span half the year (1.0 period = daily; 0.5 period = every other day).

Note: Elective classes can only be dropped within the first week of school or at the end of each semester, pending approval from a parent/guardian, teacher, and administration. If students enrolled in every-other-day music classes opt to drop one after the school year commences, they will attend the remaining music class daily (without being placed in a study hall).
