Grade 6

2022/2023 Complementary Program

Grade 6 students at Mountain Park School participate in an exploratory wheel of complementary courses. Grade 6 students have the choice between Music 6 (Full Year) OR Concert Band 6 (Full Year).

Music 6 (Full year course)

Students will discover and develop skills such as rhythm, melody, harmony, singing, and reading music by learning and performing. Through various activities, students will gain an appreciation for various music genres, song structure, and creating music for performance purposes.

Concert Band 6 (Full year course)

Join the fun of making exciting music with your friends! Enjoy exploring a wide variety of new music with other musicians. Students will develop their personal and ensemble performance skills. Students will have the opportunity to perform in several concerts throughout the year, participate in a three-day overnight band workshop retreat, and perform in the AIBF music festival. Instruments included in our band are flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, oboe, saxophone, trumpet, trombone euphonium, tuba, French horn, bassoon and percussion. New students are welcome, no previous band experience is necessary; we only require your enthusiasm for music. FEE: Instrument rental $100, band resource fee $90, band camp cost T.B.A. Financial assistance is available for students and families who qualify and would be otherwise unable to participate. 

ALL grade 6 students will also take:

Art 6

Students will explore a variety of media and techniques to create art through drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpting, fabric arts and photography. Student projects will involve exploration of natural objects, abstraction, distortion, symbolic meaning, analysis of the elements of composition, with focus on refining techniques learned in earlier grades.

CTF Technology 6

Students will create and collaborate with online Google tools and resources such as Drive, Slides, Drawings, Sites, Gmail, Sheets, and Forms. Students will learn digital citizenship and 21st-century problem-solving skills they may find helpful in their future careers. IRIS, an online portfolio tool, will be used to store and showcase projects. In addition, students will be challenged to think critically about what they see online and on social media. The primary goal of the course is to effectively use a computer as a tool for core class assignments and projects.

CTF Enterprise and Innovation 6

Career and Technology Foundations is an introductory course that encourages students to begin thinking about their futures. Students will work both independently and with others as they develop interpersonal skills while solving problems in response to challenges. Making decisions, adapting to unexpected events, and creating products, performances or services are all aspects of CTF.
