Homework: When assigned homework, make sure you write it down in your agenda! All assignments will be written on the whiteboard. Late work will only be accepted for credit with a valid excuse. To get credit for all math assignments (homework, tests, quizzes, journals), they must be done in pencil; if not only partial credit will be given.
Absences: When you return to school after an absence, it is your responsibility to find out what you missed. You will have two days from the day you return to make-up any missed assignments for full credit. If you miss a test, see me so that we can make arrangements for a makeup test. Page Headings: In the upper right hand corner of every paper you turn in to me, there must be a heading. If there is not, you will not receive credit. On the first line of your heading, place your first and last name and the subject. On the next line, write the date, and on the last line, write the assignment. Example: Melvin Merlos/Geometry August 13, 2020 Homework/Page35
Necessities: If you need to get out of your chair for any reason please raise your hand and ask for permission. If you need to go to the restroom, it must be an emergency, or you will have to wait until your regular breaks between classes. Anytime you leave my classroom during a class period, you will need to sign out.
Class Dismissal: Class dismissal times are posted; however, remain in your seat until I dismiss you. Remember the bell lets us know it is time to go, but I will dismiss you!
Off Limits Areas: My desk, behind my desk, file cabinets, and the table beside my desk are off limits to all students unless they are given permission. Storage cabinets and whiteboards are also off limits. Please respect this request.
Food/Gum/Candy: Please do not eat food or candy without permission in our classroom. Also, there will be no gum allowed in the classrooms or on the school grounds.
Toys/Games: I will only give student one warning when I catch them playing with a personal toy, game, or any other type of electronic device. If I have to speak to them again, I will take the device to the office for parents to pick-up. Housekeeping: This is our classroom, so please help me to keep it clean. Throw all trash in the waste can, and please do not leave garbage on the floor or tables.
Attendance: You are expected to attend each class meeting and to be on time. You will be given a specific amount of time to complete any work assigned during your absence.
General classroom Rules: 1. All school policies will be enforced. 2. Be prepared with book, paper, and pen/pencil (sharpened). 3. Be respectful of all. 4. Be productive during the entire class period.
