Composition Class

 

Expectations:

  • Enter quietly, and begin working on your bell ringer.

  • Be in your seat when the tardy bell rings.

  • Arrive prepared to learn with all materials. 

  • Respect others.

  • Complete and return all work on time. Homework is due at the beginning of class or it is considered late.

  • Listen carefully, follow directions, and stay on task. Do not talk with your neighbor while the teacher is giving instructions.

  • A clear container of water only is allowed in class.

Grading Policy:

      Homework 50%, Tests 50%

Homework:

     All homework is due at the beginning of class.  Work turned in after class begins or the next day will be considered late and will receive 80% of the grade earned.  After that, a grade of 0 may be recorded.  Therefore, it is extremely important to turn all work in on time.

Tardiness:

     A student is considered tardy for class if he/she is not in the classroom with all needed materials when the bell rings.  If a student arrives in class on time but has to return to his/her locker for homework or materials needed for class, he/she will be considered tardy.  First period begins at 7:55 a.m. Tardiness will be considered a discipline issue. A verbal warning will be given for the first tardy per six weeks. Each additional tardy will result in disciplinary action deemed appropriate.  

Absences:

     Please inform me in advance of any known reason that your child may miss school so that I can give your child the materials for missed work before leaving school. In the case of an unplanned absence, please contact me for make-up work. You may also check my teacher webpage, homework webpage, and Google Classroom for notes and daily class activities. Also, please send a note with your child upon returning to school for any absence. This will be given to the office.
