1. Be PROMPT
2. Be PREPARED
3. Be POLITE
4. Be HONEST
Remember, all of these rules apply when there is a substitute
Consequences: There is no good excuse for being late or unprepared. If you are late, without a pass, more than once, you should expect to serve a detention. Please come to class prepared, you may also have to serve a detention if the problem is not corrected.
If you fail to be polite (use good manners, be tolerant and respectful towards everyone), possible consequences include:
1. warning 2. seat change 3. detention 4. parent contact 5. office referral
Students will bring the following with them to class everyday:
1. Your Blue binder / Folder containing:
- Your current notes
- Filler paper
- Appropriate science book
2. Your agenda.
3. Your base pencil bag containing all of the base general supplies (pens, pencils, markers/colored pencils, highlighters, red pen, glue stick and CALCULATOR).
Homework is an integral part of the educational process. To properly learn science, you must practice the ideas and concepts that are introduced. You should, therefore, expect consistent homework assignments. All assignments are to be complete by the beginning of class the day they are due.
Students who repeatedly fail to complete homework assignments will be required to stay for an extended time after school.
Students are expected to come to class with their assignments completed on time. If the assignment is one day late, points will be deducted. If the assignment is two days late, additional points will be deducted. Assignments that are more than two days late, receive no credit.
