NEW AP!!! Starts Monday 3/10 ONLY MON,TUES, and THURS!
What is AP for?? AP is for getting help! AP is for asking questions! AP is for working on homework in a quiet environment! AP is for finishing tests! AP is for academic enrichment!
What are the new AP session types? YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE AP TEACHER AND CLASS ANYMORE. Each AP day you will CHOOSE which teacher to see during AP, or a teacher might choose YOU. Two types of sessions: CLOSED: Only students with a signature from that teacher may enter OPEN: All students welcome (usually study hall/doing homework) IF THEY DO NOT HAVE A SIGNATURE FROM A TEACHER
How do I decide which AP to go to? A list will be on the Fallon website every week to pick Have your parents help you decide! Write your first and second choices in your minder binder for the three AP days so you don’t forget! Read the topics for each of the AP sessions. See one you need help with? See an open homework session with a teacher you want there in case you get stuck? Know you have a test coming up in a certain class? See a topic that interests you? REMEMBER AP IS TO HELP YOU SUCCEED! CHOOSE WISELY!
Teacher Signatures -No more pink passes! -Teachers will sign minder binders in the 8 th column with a #1 or #2 -#1 means you HAVE TO BE AT THAT CLOSED SESSION- NO EXCEPTIONS! -#2 means if you have no #1 teacher signature that day, then you need to come. -Do not own a minder binder? There are some extras in the office! See Mrs. Hernandez OR Your teacher can give you a blue calendar to use instead. -NO RANDOM PIECES OF PAPER OR NOTEBOOKS CAN BE USED!
How do I get in to an AP class? Open Session: Just show up with your minder binder open that has NO signatures inside! OR show up with your minder binder open with a #2 signature for that teacher Closed Session: A teacher will sign your minder binder with a #1 and you must show up. OR you can ask a teacher to sign it if you want to attend their Closed session because you need help or are interested in that topic. If a class is FULL then you must go to a backup open session! ALWAYS SHOW UP WITH YOUR MINDER BINDER OR BLUE CALENDAR OPEN TO THE CORRECT DATE! IT IS YOUR TICKET INSIDE!
What do I do when I get there? Minder binder is checked on your way in. Find your name on your teacher’s computer or other electronic device. Enter the current AP room number after your name Work quietly and productively on homework or an assignment your teacher has for you in the closed session. Stay in the same AP for the rest of the AP period.
Consequences Don’t have your minder binder or blue sheet calendar out? DETENTION Wandering around outside instead of in an AP class? DETENTION Don’t show up for a teacher’s closed session when required? DETENTION AP is for learning! Not being productive? You will be sent to H-5 and will automatically have a Friday detention or higher consequence! Excessive misbehavior in an AP class may mean you are asked NOT to return to that AP!
Other important info Emergency during AP? (lunch, or passing period too) Go to your PREVIOUS teacher’s room number on the blacktop. PE, Library, and other open sessions may get full! If your teacher has closed the door to an open session then it is full! Go to a backup choice! The school electronic device policy still is in effect. You must ask permission to use your devices in your AP classes or follow any device signs/rules your AP teacher gives you.
