Welcome to Ms. Richmond’s Classroom
About Me: My name is Aaron Richmond. I was born and raised in Bowling Green, KY where I attended Warren Central High School for four years. Growing up, I was raised by my mother, Kim Richmond and grandparents, Gary and Leslie Jerls. I played both basketball and softball in high school and received a full scholarship to play basketball at the University of Toledo. After two years, I transferred to Lee University in Cleveland, TN to be closer to home and continued my college basketball career. I was a two- year Varsity letter winner there, a 2007 SSAC 1 st Team All-Conference and Defensive Player of the Year and the 2008 SSAC All-Conference MVP. I graduated in July 0f 2008, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.

Cell Phones There will be NO cell phones in class. This means no personal phone calls, texting, listening to music. If I see it, I will warn you once, after the first warning I will take it up and take it to the office for you to get back at the end of the day (with a write up). Do not ask to listen to music from your phone, I will play music from my computer! We may have a couple days during the quarter, we will do research or look up definitions, if you’re good for the week (no write ups, on time to class, work is turned in), I will let you use your phones.
Food & Drink Food and drinks are not allowed in class If you are good for the whole week and don’t get PRIDE put on the chalkboard, on Friday you may have food and drinks in the room. Again, this is a special privilege based on EVERYONE’S behavior. Don’t be that person that makes everyone miss out on special privileges!
PRIDE Rules If you want to eat or drink food on Friday, you have to behave during Monday- Thursday. This isn’t individual, this is for everyone! If you come late to class a P gets put on the board (or RIDE) If you get to PRIDE before Friday, you will not get to eat or drink on Friday
Teachers Desk & Student Workstation You need to raise your hand and ask permission to get anything from the student work station (Paper, pencil, turn in your work) Students are not allowed what so ever to touch anything on my desk or be behind my desk without permission.
Folders for Class Do not write on the folders I give you, they will be reused. If you write on it, damage it, or don’t take care of it, you will have to replace it.
Excuse Notebook Every time you do not have your work turned in or incomplete you will fill out the “Excuse Notebook.” After 3 entries, I will notify your parents by a phone call, , and letter home!
Bathroom Passes Do not ask to go to the bathroom once the bell rings, go before you come to class You will get 3 bathroom passes a quarter. When you have to use the restroom, raise your hand and ask for permission. If you have a pass, you will take it from the bathroom pass sheet on the chalkboard and hand it to me. The passes you don’t use will count for extra credit at the end of the quarter. If you tell me you have to use the bathroom, go to the bathroom, do not wander around. After 5 minutes if you are not back, I will call the office and I will consider that skipping!
Student of the Week/Month There will be a student of the week & month. This is for students that come to class prepared, behave, and show school PRIDE! At the end of the year, those who have the most for the week/month will receive a prize from Ms. Richmond!
Thank You Page! I look forward to having you all in class and getting to know you all! If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask me at anytime! Ms. Richmond Go Raiders!
