Students in grade 6 are offered opportunities to take encore courses from the Exploratory Wheel, Beginning Band, or Introduction to Chorus. The Exploratory Wheel allows students to take four nine-week electives during the school year. Students in grades 7 & 8 take elective courses.


Parents of all students have the ability to view their child’s progress in school via the Aspen Family Portal. Please visit the Aspen Family Portal page for additional information.
