    Conference Period:    

    A Day: 1: 30 P.M.—3:00 P.M. or before/after school

    B Day: 11:25 A.M.-1:25 P.M. or before/after school 

     

    Supplies Needed for Class*:       

    Binder

    Pencils/Pens/Erasers

    Loose-leaf Paper

    Facial Tissue

    Highlighters

    Map Colors/Colors

    Glue/Glue Sticks

    Markers

    Sticky Notes

    Five Dividers

    Scissors                       

     *I anticipate that the supplies will be used in many of the student’s classes, and I do not intend to store them (other than the box of facial tissue). 

    Cell Phones: No cell phones are allowed during class unless authorized by me.  Students are required to place their cell phones in the Cell Phone Parking Lot in the front of the room at the beginning of class.

    The first offense will result in a warning.

    The second offense will result in confiscation during class and/or parent contact.

    The third offense will result in confiscation, cell phone to office, and and/or referral.

    Expectations**: A substantial amount of material will be presented each day.  I expect my students to respect me and one another.  There should be very little talking during instruction.  Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated.  Students are expected to take care of their needs between classes so as not to miss instruction.  Upon arrival, students are expected to sit in their assigned seats, read the instructions on the board or overhead, and begin their warm-up activity. 

    **No food or drink is allowed in class.  Students not in their assigned seats when the bell rings will be counted tardy.

     

    Five Simple Rules:      

    Prepared

    Prompt

    Polite

    Professional

    Productive

     

    Behavior:                    

    The first offense will result in a warning.

    The second offense will result in hallway discussion and/or parent contact.

    The third offense will result in a teacher detention and/or referral.

     

    Grading Policy:           

    Homework/Daily                     30%

    Assessment/Test                     70% 

    Semester Exam                       20% of total grade

     

    Late Work: Homework assignments will be turned in at the beginning of class on the day the assignment is due.  If it is not turned in at that point, it will be considered late.  A student will have three days to complete the assignment with a 10% deduction per day

     

    Absent Work: If any work was assigned while a student was absent, the student has that many days to complete it.  Example: If a student were out 1 day (A/B day, for instance), the student has 1 day (A/B day) to turn in the assignment or complete an assessment; if the student were out 2 days, he/she has 2 days.   If a student is absent and an assignment was assigned prior to the absence, the student is expected to have the assignment turned in upon his/her return to class.  Example: If homework was assigned on Wednesday and due Friday but the student was absent on Friday, the assignment is due on Monday. 

     

    Remind 101: I use Remind.com to remind students about homework assignments and due dates.  The number that generates the text message is not mine, so I will not/cannot respond to texts.
