While all school rules will be enforced in my classroom, I have the following requirements for my class to run more smoothly:
A. Beginning of Class:
Please come into the room quickly and quietly. Make sure to have all your utensils.
B. Restroom Policy:
You will be allowed 1 trip to the bathroom per class unless otherwise warranted by an emergency.
C. Extra Help:
If you realize that you need help
, please raise your hand and I will come to you. If you would like extra help after class, please let me know and we can set up a time to meet after school. (Tutoring Wednesday- 3:00-4:00PM.)
It is vital that you complete all assignments in class. Not only does it help you to receive a good grade, but it also ensures that you are receiving the required material in my class!
