Cell Phone Policy: Students will be placing their phones in a secure, locked location during my class. If a student chooses to not secure their phones and he/she has the phone out during class, he/she will be given 3 hours of after school detention. In addition to detention, the phone will be taken to the office for the day. School phones are always available for parent contact, if necessary, during the school day.
Weekly Emails: I will be sending home weekly emails to any email address you provide to me. Emails will contain a list of major assignments that are due during the week. I will also include a class “Wish List” on the emails. Wish List items will generally be used for activities. Please consider donating items from the Wish List. Our current Wish List: tissues, disinfectant wipes
Agenda: Students will be expected to complete a weekly agenda. A calendar will be provided for them in their binder. Students should record a goal, assignments, and test/quiz dates on the calendar. The agenda will be worth a quiz grade at the end of each grading period.
Binder/Notes: Students will be completing a series of guided notes. Students will keep unit notes, vocabulary and activities in their binder. The binder will be graded at the end of each grading period and be worth one test grade.
1st offense: verbal warning from teacher
2nd offense: verbal warning from teacher, parent contact
3rd offense: parent contact, time-out, after school detention
*I reserve the right to skip verbal warning based on the severity of the offensive action. Students who continue to disrespect teacher and peers will be sent to time-out without additional warning. Any continuing offenses will be referred to the Administration on a case by case basis.
**Exam is state tested and is 20% of final grade**
