Conduct and Expectations
Attendance and active participation in class are essential to your success. Please do not engage in behavior that distracts others from classroom work; this can result in loss of participation points. As in all classes, you are expected to strive for and maintain a respectful classroom environment: respect the ideas of others (even if they differ from yours); respect school property (lab supplies, tables, computers, etc.); and respect for the learning time, teachers, and fellow students. Inappropriate or rude behavior will not be tolerated. Such behaviors include the use of video games, music players, or cell phones during class, refusal to participate in class activities, and being late to class.
Eating in the Classroom
Absolutely no eating in the science lab. We will be using chemicals, dissecting animals, and conducting various experiments that may pose a significant hazard to your digestive system.
