Expectations:

Be prepared. Participate. Respect your classmates, teachers, and yourself. Be honest. Do your BEST work.

Responsibilities:

If you are absent, it is your responsibility to check for missing assignments. You can check the box, ask a classmate, or see me during tutoring.

If a visitor enters our classroom, we are respectful and quiet. If an announcement comes on, we are silent and listening.

If you finish your work early, please double-check before turning it in or putting it away. Check for missing work. Read a book or write in your notebook.

If I am absent, the class should run as normal. You are respectful and courteous with our guest teacher.
