    Class Expectations

    ¨     Students will bring a writing instrument to class each day.  When you come into class please get out your homework, a calculator, and a textbook.   

    ¨     All students will be in their assigned seats when the bell rings.  If not, you will be marked late.  Students will remain in a seat the entire class period.

    ¨     All students must remain quiet and in a seat during classroom instruction.

    ¨     Only one student is allowed to be out of the classroom at a time.  Mrs. Anderson must sign your planner.

    ¨     All students will respect Mrs. Anderson, fellow students, the classroom and school materials at all times.  No inappropriate language or behavior will be tolerated.  If discipline becomes a problem, it will be taken care of according to the district policies.  The District Bullying Policy will apply in this classroom.

    ¨     Cheating will absolutely not be tolerated.  Refer to the Student Handbook for more information.

    ¨     Cell phones must remain off and out of sight during class.




    ¨     A student will be considered tardy if not in the classroom and in your seat when the bell rings.  Three tardies are the equivalent of a ½ hour detention.  Refer to the tardiness policy in the student handbook.

    ¨     A class cut is equivalent of 2 hours of detention.

    ¨     For excused absences, the student is required to complete all missed work, including class notes.  Extra copies of missed material will be location in the classroom.   Talk to Mrs. Anderson to schedule a time for a make-up exam.


    Homework and Make-up Work

    ¨     All homework assignments missed due to absence must be turned in when you return (depending on days absent) or a zero will be given.

    ¨     Homework is graded on completion, and is worth 3 points per assignment.  All graded homework assignments will be announced prior to the turn in date.

    ¨     Late homework is not accepted.

    ¨     Any student caught with another student’s paper will receive a zero on the homework assignment, as well as the other student.  This is considered cheating!

    ¨     The School District Homework Policy will apply:

    1st Incident:  Forgiveness

    2nd Incident:  Verbal Warning

    3rd Incident:  1/2 hour detention

    4th Incident:  1 hour of detention plus parent contact

    Please ask Mrs. Anderson to schedule a time for extra help.







    ¨     Grades will be determined based on the total number of points assigned.  The total number of points per nine weeks may vary. 


    ¨     Students will be graded on:

    -         Homework-3 points
