Class Rules 1. Please raise your hand if you have a question or comment to make. It is the only way to ensure that we ALL have an equal voice in the classroom.
2. Come to class prepared with pencil or pen, a spiral notebook and a binder every day. DO NOT walk into class empty handed.
3. Be seated with your warm-up notebook and pencil out when the bell rings, or you will be banished to the office. (A detention comes with that. Avoid it.)
4. No eating or drinking, unless it is WATER. Pure, unadulterated, clear, unflavored water! (If you are eating or drinking anything other than water, you’ll receive detention.) If you bring a drink or food to class, simply place it on my desk and take it with you after class.
5. Keep your cell phone in your pocket or bag. I see it, I take it! Confiscated phones will be taken down to the office to be picked up by a parent or guardian. No exceptions, even for first time offenders!
6. Put away your iPod and keep earphones out of your ear. There MAY be times when I will allow you to use your iPod—but unless you receive the go-ahead from me, keep it out of sight!
7. If you are seen drawing on a desk, you’ll come in after school to clean my room. Big cleaning.
8. Warm-ups will not be accepted on individual sheets of paper. Notebook or death (meaning: an F.) Make sure your heading includes name, date, class period and week at the top of EVERY page.
9. The class website is your go-to place for all your English needs! If you are absent from class, it is YOUR responsibility to find out what you missed and what you need to do to make it up. I will not track you down to tell you what to do. It’s up to you!
10. You have one week to turn in late work for half credit. After that, it’s too late! Check the website for any handouts/assignments if you’re absent.
11. Take care of all “preparing for class business” (pencil sharpening, notebook gathering…) BEFORE class. Once the bell rings, class has begun and you should be ready. If you are not ready and seated, you will be considered tardy and sent to the office. A well-prepared student. We like him.
12. I take a lot of time to ensure that my classroom is tidy and attractive. I like to be in a visually appealing room, and I hope you do to. Please help me keep it this way. DO NOT write on the bulletin boards or mess with anything pinned to the boards or hanging on the wall. I won’t mess with your stuff—don’t mess with mine! This is MY room, just like your locker is YOURS. Please respect this space and the items in it.
A few extras… 1. Where can I find paper? 2. Can I borrow a writing utensil if I forget mine? 3. Where do I turn in assignments? 4. Where do I recycle paper? I hear that if I forget to recycle something, Miss Schulze will make me dig it out of the garbage can. 5. What is the bathroom policy? 6. Where will I find papers turned in with no name? 7. If I need some school supplies, where can I find some freebies?
