    WHAT SHOULD BE SEEN IN THE CLASSROOM?

    Positive student participation

    Classroom behavior determines pass privileges. Those students tardy to class will not receive any “privileges” that period. i.e. passes to restroom, drink, locker, library, etc. Please return ALL passes to Ms. Tucker.

    Cell phones are put away until class discussion is completed

    Students should not mess with window blinds or adjust the thermostat.

     

    TEXTS/WORK BOOKS:

    We do not have enough textbooks to go around. Any textbooks MUST stay in the classroom.

    Workbooks have been turned into worksheets. They may leave the classroom.

    On ALL assignments, students must include:  first name, last name, and class period.
