General Information

1. Good attendance is the cornerstone for success in this class. It is difficult to take notes and understand daily lesson information if you are not present to hear discussions, lectures and explanations. Please be:

On time. We begin class promptly as soon as the bell rings and you are expected to be in your seat and ready to begin. After 3 tardies you will receive one detention for each subsequent tardy.

Prepared for the daily assignments (books, writing utensils, homework).

2. There will be daily bell ringer activities on the overhead or the whiteboard in front of the class. These will be graded on a daily basis.

3. There is a no cell phone policy. Your phone must be powered off and put away. If your phone is out, it will be confiscated and turned in to the office and you will be subject to disciplinary action.

4. Please be aware that plagiarized assignments will be given a grade of Zero and will also be referred to the assistant principal for further disciplinary actions.
