    Course Expectations, Goals & Routines

     
    Behavior procedures and expectations:

    • You are expected to be in the classroom and prepared when the bell rings.   Anyone who enters the classroom late without a pass will be counted tardy.

    • Always come to class prepared!!! Bring all materials needed for class: paper, pencils, pens, books, assignments, etc. Failure to bring materials may result in a tardy, or homework not accepted.

    • Hand in all assigned material on time!!! If you have an extenuating circumstance, please come talk with me and we will work something out.

    • Cheating is a very serious offense and is unacceptable behavior. Cheating goes against all of the educational goals we have set up for you and is not considered a means to success. Any and all students caught cheating will receive zero credit for that assignment, and a parent will be contacted.

    Daily Routine

    • Class starts with a Bell Ringer (Allons-y) that is to be completed by the students within the first 10 minutes of class.

    • After the Bell Ringer we will generally go over new topics and then practice them with activities.
