SOME IMPORTANT PROCEDURES TO LEARN


1. If you miss a class, you will be responsible for making up any work you missed as soon as you return to school. You must pick up missed handouts from the identified folder by the door and return them to me once you have completed. Also, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with your teacher to make up quizzes, tests, class work, homework etc. 2. CHEATING: copying someone tests, quizzes, etc will not be tolerated. The consequences for academic dishonesty are: a zero for the assignment for both students and parent contact by the teacher. 3. Homework / assignments are to be turned in at the beginning of class. No late homework / assignment will be taken or graded. ENTERING THE CLASSROOM: 1. 2. 3. 4. Turn your cell phone off. Enter quietly to class and be seated. Greet teacher in Spanish when entering classroom. Keep your assigned seat unless I tell you otherwise; you may be moved for other reasons.

You are expected to have a three ring binder and bring it to the class every day to keep all your notes, handouts, homework etc. together in a neat an organized manner. It must look very professional, so you will be able to study from it. Pencils should be sharpened prior to class or at times that do not interrupt instruction.
