CLASSROOM PROCEDURES & rules • Raise your hand if you need to ask or answer a question. • Do not get up from your seat unless you have asked for permission. • There is absolute NO talking while I am teaching a lesson unless I call on you. • Do not disrupt the learning environment of your peers. • Support and praise each other. Together We Achieve More. • Always remember that there is a time for fun and a time for work. • Bullying will not be tolerated and will result in an immediate referral to the dean of discipline. • Bathroom use will be limited. If bathroom use is too excessive, there will be a call home. Try to use the bathroom in between classes or during lunch. (4th & 5th period needs to make sure they use the bathroom during lunch as you will not be allowed in class unless there is an emergency.

Keep in mind that I will not accept homework that is turned in later on during class. • Take out your planner and immediately write your homework down. • There will be daily warm-up activities. Make sure that you begin these immediately after you write your homework down as they will be timed. (These will sometimes be quizzes) • When done with warm-up activity, read the objective for the day to find out what we are learning and sit quietly and wait for me to begin the daily lesson.
