BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS: BE PROMPT: Be in the proper seat, prepared to work on time! Class will begin promptly at the bell. BE PREPARED: Doing what is expected of you makes life easier, so plan ahead. Start work right away, bring necessary materials to class, complete homework assignments on time, be responsible and study for tests! BE POLITE: Kindly refrain from talking when the teacher or another student is speaking. Raise your hand if you have a question (and wait to be called on). Please try to whisper if it is necessary and appropriate to ask a neighbor a question. Be kind, courteous and considerate at all times. Please be respectful of yourself and others. BE POSITIVE: Have a good attitude about yourself and others. Encourage those around you who need help and offer it when you can. You can learn and master skills when you try! BE PRODUCTIVE: Make a goal and stick to it! Excel in things which make you proud! All work should be legible and well organized. Students are expected to show all work. ALWAYS! *Dont forget PIRATE PRIDE (Preparation, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence). Remember to be proud of your school and clean up after yourself as well. Make sure to check the area around your desk for trash and be sure it gets into the trash can before you leave. CLASS REQUIREMENTS: Attendance is MANDATORY for your success in the class. In the regular classes, missing more than 10 days means you must earn a C or higher on the final exam in order to pass the class. See your student handbook for specifics regarding attendance policies. Missed assignments and make-up work: If you are absent, it is YOUR responsibility to find out about the work missed in class and get it done. Assignments will be posted online and in the assignment log daily. Unexcused absences should make up the work; however, no credit will be given. Excused absences have two days to make up work for every absence. After two days, work will be considered late. After three days, there will be no credit given. Missed tests / quizzes and make-ups: No test or quizzes may be made up during class time. It is YOUR responsibility to schedule a time with me to make up any missed tests or quizzes. Make up tests and quizzes may or may not be different then the original test. Unexcused can take the quiz / test, but no points will be given. Excused absences have only two days to make up test. All backpacks, purses, bags, etc must be placed on the floor during the duration of class. No bags will be permitted on the desks.
