Arrival Our school day begins at 7:50 a.m. You will need to do your lunch count, sharpen pencils, use the restroom, check the supply board for needed supplies, and be in your seat when the bell rings. If there is a warm up on your desk or projected on the board, you need to start it after finishing the above tasks. If there is not a warm up, you should read quietly at your desk. **You may be given PAT time for completing these tasks.
Respect the property of others. Respect other people and yourself. Raise your hand before speaking. Remember to keep your hands and feet to yourself at all times. Remember to complete all class and homework assignments to the best of your abilities.
Tickets are handed throughout the day for good behavior and participation, and will be placed in a drawing for prizes! Ticket System
Binder/Planner Your Binder/Planner will be taken home each night. It must be stamped or initialed by your teacher and signed by your parents DAILY. Your binder will contain homework sheets, graded papers, newsletters, discipline information, and notes from the teacher. All school communication (fridge reminders, school newsletters, etc.) will be placed in your Granger Folder on Thursdays.
Proper Heading Students must have their number, name and subject in the upper left hand corner of their paper. The date goes on the upper right hand corner and the Title of the assignment goes on the top line. See below example: 1 Krystal DavisTuesday Subject 8/24/2010 Title
Our Grading Scale 90-100% = A 80-89% = B 70-79% = C Below 70% = F E = Excellent S = Satisfactory N = Needs Improvement U = Unsatisfactory Grades are calculated on cumulative percentage and are rounded up whenever possible. Grading Procedures A numerical grade is given in LA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. An E, S, N, or U is given in PE, Music, and Art. An E, S, N, or U is given for Conduct and Study Habits both in the room and in Specials.
Conduct Grades The number of checks you earn over a six- week period determines conduct grades. If you break one of the major rules, your planner will be signed and you will receive a mark on your conduct sheet. For each conduct area, students are given this many chances: EESS NNNU
Conduct Stick Everyone starts on blue. Your clip will be moved to GREEN after receiving your first warning. Your clip will be moved to yellow after your second offense. You will owe 5 mins of recess and your planner will be signed. Your clip will be moved to RED after your third offense. You will owe ALL of your recess, and your planner will be signed. If your conduct does not improve, a phone call to your parents will be made and a possible office referral will be written. Not having your homework will result in having your planner signed and a seat in study hall. Depending on the severity of the offense, your clip may be moved multiple colors or straight to RED. The stick will be carried to specials and lunch, and your clip may be moved during these times as well.
Late Work Policy Students shall be assessed a penalty of 10 points per day for up to three days for work not turned in on time. Extenuating circumstances will be given consideration, and exceptions will require approval of the campus principal or designee. Late work turned in after three days will be assessed a maximum 30 point deduction. If the work is not turned in before the last day of the six- weeks grading period, a grade of zero will be assigned. An assignment is considered late if it is not turned in the day after it is assigned. If an assignment is not turned in, I will note it in their folder. Please check the students planner AND folder everyday for homework assignments. Every late homework assignment results in a mark on conduct WSH #2, and students will be required to complete the homework during study hall.
Absent Work When you are absent, a While You Were Out form will be placed on your desk. This form will have written on it all the assignments missed from the day of the absence. Also, any worksheet that was handed out on the day you missed will be attached to the While You Were Out form. This work will not be counted late, so long as it is turned in on the make-up due date. For every day that you are absent you have that many days to complete the make-up work. If the work is not turned in on the make-up day, it will be treated as late work.
Homework 1. We will assign students minimal homework over concepts they have already worked on in class. Students should feel a great sense of success while doing their work at home because they have shown success on similar problems/assignments in class. 2. The majority of homework will be assigned each Monday. There may be times when other work may be assigned during the week. 3. Homework will not only be written on the board, but also in the student planners and on our websites. Please check our websites for additional resources regarding homework. 4. You will need to keep your daily homework inside your folder and return this to class on a daily basis. We may be checking homework from the night before, or doing an activity with the last night’s work and you will need to have it to be prepared for class.
Birthday Celebrations You are welcome you to bring a treat to pass out during the last ten minutes of the school day. Please let me know at least ONE DAY in advance, so I can schedule time at the end of the day for the celebration!
You will start with 5 minutes of PAT time in both Mrs. Embry’s class and my class, for a total of 10 minutes. You can gain PAT time by being responsible and ready to learn by having all your supplies, and by completing procedures and instructions correctly the first time. You can also lose time for not being prepared or following procedures/instructions. On Fridays, you will be reward the PAT time you have earned for the week. PAT Time (Preferred Activity Time)
