Classroom Procedures and Expectations

Respond to all reasonable requests made by the teacher.
Eyes and ears should be on the speaker, whether it is the teacher or another student.
Save all food and drinks for AFTER class.  None are allowed during class.
Participation in ALL class assignments and activities is expected.
Enter class prepared to learn, with ALL materials and assignments.
Criticize actions or ideas, not people.
Tardies disrupt class.  You must be sitting in your assigned seat when the bell rings.


Each Semester you will receive a grade in citizenship that includes attendance, punctuality, and class participation.  Grades of Excellent, Satisfactory, or Unsatisfactory will be given.

Consequences for not meeting behavioral expectations:

1.  Counseled and Warned

2.  Counseled and Warned; Phone call to parent/guardian

3.  Lunch Detention Assigned; Parent Contact

4.  Teacher/Parent/Student Conference; Referral to Assistant Principal indicating fourth offense and conference held; Four (4) hours of Saturday School will be assigned.

5.  Referral to Assistant Principal; Parent Conference; Student placed on behavior contract and assigned 4 hours of Saturday School.


Grades are based on a point system.  Each assignment, project, test, or homework assignment is worth a certain amount of points based on the difficulty or time required to complete the assignment.

Assignments will be weighted as follows:

Class Assignments: 40%
Tests/Quizzes: 30%
Projects: 20%
Homework: 10%

The Grade Scale is as follows:

90 - 100%: 60 - 69%: D
80 - 89%: B   59% - Lower: F
70 - 79%: C


If you are unable to finish an assignment in class, you are usually given the opportunity to finish it as homework.

Homework can be expected 3-4 times per week, as needed.  

Homework assignments could include vocabulary, spelling, reading, writing assignments, and special projects.  

Homework is due the day after it is assigned, unless special instructions are given.

Make Up Work:

Make up work is available for students who miss class.  You will have 5 school days to make up work.  Work that is due on the day of your absence will be due on the day of your return.  It is YOUR responsibility to come to the teacher to receive assignments.



Please review this list of procedures and expectations with your son/daughter.  If you need clarification on any topic, do not hesitate to ask. 

I am available for conferences if necessary; please call to make an appointment. 

I am looking forward to a successful year, and together we can provide many opportunities for your child's success.
