Miss a day?  Need help?

1.    Be here!!  Not all class work can be made up because the class incorporates discussion and teacher instruction that cannot be reconstructed.  When you return from an absence: Look in the “While You Were Gone…” bucket for some brief notes about the day you missed.  A fellow classmate will have filled out an “I’ve been out” form for you.

2.    Turn in make-up work within 1 week.   Attach the “I have been out” form to your work.

3.    Get notes and instructions from classmate.

4.    If you miss a DVD, test, or quiz, make an appointment with Mrs. Mundahl to complete it before school, during AAA, or after school.

5.    Participation points are regained by completing the missed work or a make-up assignment within 1 week.

6.    Each time you complete an “I’ve been out” sheet for a classmate, you earn extra credit points!


Supplies you need every day!                                   

1.   A separate pocket folder for this class.               

2.   Note paper.                                                          

3.   Pen or pencil.                                                       

4.   Planning calendar.

5.   Additional supplies will be needed as projects are presented.

You need to be Paying Attention in order to learn!                       

  • Silence your phone.
  • Wait to view cell texts and calls. 
  • Unplug and turn off electronics.
  • Drink plain water.  Your brain needs water!!  Bring water for drinking!! 
  • Only healthy snacks for yourself.
  • Listen and learn.


Academic Integrity

You can be very successful.  Be honest, trustworthy, fair, responsible and respectful.  Scholastic dishonesty is defined as cheating; plagiarizing (stealing the ideas or writings of another and passing them off as your own); altering, fabricating, forging, or falsifying records; or dishonestly obtaining homework, tests, or grades.  You’re better than that!!  Any cheating or plagiarizing results in no points earned.

Extra Credit     

Opportunities will be available periodically.  Also, think about proposing ideas of your own!

When you need my help for anything, talk to me!

--- Call me.

You are important and I’m glad you’re here.
