Rising 6th Grader? Check Out Info on Registering for Electives


Hello future Asheville Middle School Cougars and Families. I am Blair Johnston (, the 6th-grade Assistant Principal. Normally, we would be welcoming you with an open house and face-to-face greetings, but as with all things these days, I’m reaching out virtually. There are still many unknowns about the start of next school year, but one thing is for certain, all of the Asheville Middle School staff is excited for you to join us.

We do have one really important request for each of you which is to complete the attached elective registration form. Mr Pitt, the sixth-grade guidance counselor, has created a very helpful video to walk you step by step through the process. After watching, if you have any questions, please reach out to him via email -

To Do:

  1. Watch Mr. Pitt’s video tutorial (below)
  2. Look at the 6th Grade Course catalog
  3. Fill out the Elective Registration Google Form (Espanol)
