• Classroom Rules

    It is essential that every student has the opportunity to learn in a positive classroom environment.  I expect each student to demonstrate positive behaviors while at school and in my classroom.  Positive behavior will create positive results.

       4.  Be Punctual       - Arrive on time and ready to begin work immediately.

       5.  Be Prepared      - Bring all necessary materials and completed assignments.

    Class Procedures

       Entering the room:  Please enter the room quietly and with all necessary materials.  Once you have entered the classroom, you will not be allowed to leave again until the end or the period.  Walk to your seat, prepare your materials, and write down your assignments for the day.  Always read the board to find out what you need to do.

       Tardies:  You will not be considered tardy if you are in the classroom actively engaged.  You will be considered tardy if you are not in the room when the tardy bell rings or if you are in the room not following directions.

       Leaving the class:  Every student is allowed 29 opportunities combined per a nine week grading period to leave a classroom.  This includes trips to the bathroom and returning to lockers.  These are recorded in a student's agenda and student's without agendas will not be allowed to leave a classroom. Please manage these opportunities wisely.  At the end of class, students will remain seated until they are dismissed by the teacher.

     

    Grading

       Grading Policy:        The following percentages apply for grade calculation:

                            40% =  homework, daily quizzes, and class work
                            60% =  assessments, tests, and projects

       Homework:  Homework will be assigned for the purposes of repetition, enrichment, or reinforcement of topics covered in class.  You can expect homework to take about 30 minutes and be assigned Monday night thru Thursday night.

     

            *Students will need to access www.schooology.com to find the homework assignment for that night.

    *This will include watching a video of the teacher teaching the concept and then filling in notes that correspond to the video.

    *Students will then take the corresponding online quiz.  They need to make an 80% or better before moving onto to the next assignments.  Students who make less than an 80% will need to retake the quiz.

     
     

       Late Work Policy:  For late assignments that are not considered make-up work, the following penalties apply:  10 points deducted for the first day, 20 points deducted for the second day, and 30 points deducted for the third day. 

             *All homework and classwork must be turned in by Friday.
             *If homework/classwork is not completed by the end of the assigned week, the student will be assigned an after school detention to be served the following week.
             *Persistent offenders will be assigned Saturday School.

               Make-Up Work:  If you are absent you will have the opportunity to make up the work unless it is a truancy issue.  You will be allowed the same number of days of your absence to make up the work you missed unless the assignment was made prior to your absence.  It is your responsibility to turn in missed work!
