The second all-school event for incoming freshmen is our "Spring Activity Fair" in the Beardsley Gymnasium at ETHS. At this event, students can visit booths representing many of the extra-curricular activities and sports available to students at ETHS. Among the activities represented at this fair is our Color Guard, which is affiliated with our Marching Band. To find out more about our Color Guard, visit our Marching Band page!
All freshman will be guided through an online course registration program as part of the Course Selection Night experience. Follow the steps below to ensure band fits on your schedule.
Step 1: Sign-up for Biology as your science. All freshman are required to enroll in a “Freshman Advisory” program, which takes up a class period in your schedule. Biology is a double period class – containing a lab period a few days each week, and a free period (often used as a study period) the remaining days of the week. If you take Biology as a freshman, your Freshman Advisory requirement will fit within your Biology free period days – essentially meeting two requirements at the same time! Since you have to take Biology anyway during your freshman or sophomore year, you should definitely take it as a freshman. Choose Biology as your science in the first screen of the online course registration program.
Step 2: Choose your Foreign Language. In the second screen of the online course registration program, you will be asked to choose your Foreign Language. There are many options to choose from!
Step 3: Rank Band (MU0202) as your 1st elective choice. In the third screen, you will be asked to rank your top 6 elective choices of the dozen or so options available to you as freshman. Rank Band MU0202 as your number 1 choice of these six choices.
That’s it! You are now signed up for band!
** If you get your schedule later in the spring or summer and band is not on it – contact us immediately! It is easy for us to fix a mistake or add this to your schedule if you have a change of heart!
