My expectation is that students will come prepared for class with a willingness to learn.
Students will need the following materials for class:
- One three-ring binder with five dividers
- Pens and pencils with functioning erasers
- Colored pencils
Homework assignments will be written on the classroom chalkboard daily, for the students to record in their agenda. Students are expected to write down ALL homework assignments and the dates of upcoming assessments within the first five minutes of class.
Since one lesson is often built upon an earlier lesson, it is important that students who are absent from class to attempt to catch up as soon as they can. Students should check my homework/test calendar, located on this website, for class and homework materials.
It is the responsibility of the student to collect missing notes and work.
