Hours: I will try to be in my room every morning by 7:45. I will be there until 4:00 p.m. every evening also, until basketball and junior high track season. My prep periods are 3rd hour and 6th hour. Other times can be arranged also. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to seek help when needed. Math is a subject that builds on itself so it is important to get help early to understand the subject matter. Remember, no question is a stupid question. If you do not know, ASK!!

Group Work: You will be able to work in groups throughout the school year provided you stay on task and work productively.
Leaving the Classroom: If you want to leave the classroom for whatever reason, you MUST have your pass sheet. If you do not have your pass sheet, you will not be able to leave the room. Make sure your name is on the pass sheet.
Tardiness: Each person is allowed two “free” tardies per semester. Each tardy after that will result in a 30-minute detention.
Cheating: Cheating will not be tolerated! The school handbook’s consequences will be used.
Absence: If you know you are going to be absent make sure to notify me as soon as you can so that you can be given the assignment for the day. If you are not able to notify me in advance, make sure to notify me as soon as possible so I can get you your assignment(s). All assignments missed will be due no later than two times the number of days absent.
*Note: Make sure to have the assignment that was due the day of the absence completed, as it will be due the day you return.
