    Course Expectations, Goals & Routines

    Expectations For Students In Ms. Stallings’ Classroom

          1.    Students will show respect to the rights and properties of other students, teachers and the school.

    2.    Students will comply with all the rules in the student handbook.

    3.    IDs will be worn on a lanyard around the neck in the classroom daily.  Pants will be worn at the waist.  Failure to comply with the school dress code will result in a detention and/or discipline referral.

    4.    If the teacher is not in the classroom at the start of the class, the students are to wait quietly in the hallway next to the wall for her to open the door.

    5.    Students are to keep their heads up and pay attention at all times, including during guest speakers, videos, student presentations, activities, etc.  Students may not sleep, or give the impression of sleeping in class.

    6.    Students are expected to have their class materials daily.  Class materials consist of a pen or pencil, paper, a binder or pocket notebook, and classroom textbook.

    7.    Students are to complete all classroom work to the best of their abilities.

    8.    It is the responsibility of the student to get their make-up work either before class or after class of the day they return to school.

    9.    All backpacks and purses are to be kept on the floor and out of the way of traffic.  Backpacks or purses are not allowed on the desks or tables.

    10. Students will keep all cell phones and electronic devices put away. Students will not use any of these in the classroom.  If these items are seen or heard, the item will be turned in to the office, and the student will have a discipline referral.

    11. Students will not bring any food or beverage items into the classroom.

    12. Students will sit, and remain in their assigned seats until dismissed by the teacher.

    13. Student tardies will be counted and dealt with according to the school tardy policy.   In order for you not to be tardy, please be in your seat and ready for class when it’s time for class to start.

    14. Students are to remain silent during intercom announcements, PNN, and attendance, as well as instructions given in class.

    15. Students will use acceptable language in the classroom.  The use of profane language or language that remotely sounds like profane language will become a discipline issue with your assistant principal.

    16. Students will treat a substitute teacher with respect. Any reports of inappropriate behavior will result in detention.

    17. Attitude is everything. Come to class with a positive attitude.
