Classroom Expectations, Grades and Other Stuff


1.Come Prepared. This means bring any book we may be using,  paper and pen or pencil and BE ON TIME!

2.No Food or drinks in class. Gum and water are okay, but if mess becomes a problem you will lose the privilege.

3.Turn work in on time. You have until 3:30 on the day an assignment is due to turn it in. If you have a problem, see me BEFORE the due date, not the day it's due.

4. Be respectful of others in listening and working.

5. No headphones and No texting. Set all cell phones to silent. One warning and then the item is confiscated. First time, the item will be returned at the end of the class period. After that, the item will go to the Vice Principal's office and must be reclaimed by a parent or guardian.

6. Challenge yourself. You will only get out of this class what you put into it. Make it your best effort. Remember : YOU MUST PASS THIS CLASS TO GRADUATE!

Consequences for the unlikely event you cannot meet my classroom expectations are as follows:

Getting Help/Make up work/Helpful Hint

I am available daily after school and during office hours. If needed, appointments can be made for before school.  

If you are absent it is your responsibility to ask about make up work.

Do NOT fall behind with the class work.  It is much easier to keep up than to catch up.
