Student Behaviors Behave Any behavior which causes a disruption or which interferes with teaching and learning, or which disturbs others is not allowed. This includes passing notes. Inappropriate content in confiscated notes will be shared with both parents and administrators Tardiness causes a disruption, and interferes with teaching and learning.
Student Behaviors Treat all others with courtesy and respect. It is discourteous to chat when others are presenting, asking or answering questions. It is discourteous to rifle through your binder or engage in inattentive behavior when others are presenting, asking or answering questions. Borrowing without asking, leaving a mess behind, and teasing are disrespectful behaviors.
Student Behaviors Treat all others with courtesy and respect. Sexual Harassment, vulgar language, or profanity will result in a parent contact as well as an office referral, whether such language is said aloud or written in notes. At First Creek we prepare students for the workplace, and in the work place these behaviors are not tolerated Any language that would not be tolerated in the workplace will not be tolerated at First Creek. This includes the N word, the B word, and other expletives used among friends.
Student Behaviors Treat all others with courtesy and respect. Treating others with respect includes teachers, classmates, and all visitors, and these expectations are likewise in effect when visitors are in the room.
Student Behaviors Do your work At First Creek we prepare you for the workplace. Your boss will expect you to complete your work on time. He or she will expect you to meet deadlines. He or she will expect you to manage your time wisely and use your time effectively with minimal supervision. So do I.
Student Behaviors Have materials for class daily. Binder, paper, pencils, pens, math book, math journal (notebook), and all due assignments, completed.
Student Behaviors Resolve conflicts in an appropriate manner. Conflict with teacher: See me 1st period or after school to resolve the conflict. Conflict with peer: Seek a mutually agreeable solution. If you cant, seek help from the guidance department, me, or an administer as appropriate. Tell the teacher when someone is annoying you and is unwilling to behave. (First ask the offender nicely to leave you alone.)
Consequences for poor choices First time: warning Second time: final warning Third time action First three times: noon detention if 2 rd lunch, after school detention if not 2 rd lunch. Next three times: after school detention Frequent rule violators: referral for administrative action Severe clause: office referral Disrespect toward teacher bypasses all warnings and results in action, level two or three
Special cases Gum: one warning. Further infractions or unwillingness to IMMEDIATELY dispose of gum in trash will result in detention. Paper airplanes, darts, throwing paper (other than placing in trash can) and shooting rubber bands or objects propelled by rubber bands will result in detention the first infraction. Profanity- f words, b word n word, and any synonyms or vulgarities, inappropriate finger gestures: action on first infraction.
Missing detention: Phone call and reschedule Office referral Rescheduling of detention must arranged prior to the scheduled date. Detention must be served prior to attending extra curricular activities or these privileges will be revoked.
Dress code violations and tardies will be recorded and result in the same actions 1-3 noon or after school detention 4-6 after school detention More: referral
Bathroom 20/20 minute rule applies. Use restroom between classes; dont be tardy Restroom escort will be called for emergencies only Restroom break is 4 minutes except for special circumstances Unexcused excessive restroom breaks will result in action
Contraband I confiscate contraband. You will get it back at the next break (winter, spring) or your last day here. (cell phones and electronic gaming or music devices voluntarily handed over will be returned at the end of the day). Contraband is electronic devices, toys, non uniform clothing, mis-used belts, grooming aids This is a perfume and lotion-free zone.
Building a pleasant community Value yourself. Be honest and ethical, and practice the pillars of good character. Treat all members of the school community and all visitors with politeness and respect. Honor the ideas and opinions of others. Offer to help. Be responsible with property and belongings.
Policies Food and beverages are not allowed in the classroom except during lunch. Please be in your seat when the bell rings, as class begins at that time. Major assignments and projects can be resubmitted. They must be resubmitted after school Absences Ask team members or a classmate first for assignments. Each absence has a two-day grace period.
Grading Grades are based on assessment grades. Assessments may include lesson quizzes, unit quizzes or check point quizzes, chapter tests or unit tests. The BAME scale is as follows: B: beginning (58) A: approaching standard (72) M: meets standard (86) E: exceeds standard (100) Our Grading Scale % = A 80-89% = B 70-79% = C 60-69% = D Below 60% = F Grades are calculated on cumulative percentage.
My Pledge to Students I will trust you until you give me reason to not trust you. I will treat you with respect and work with you to solve problems. I will promptly correct and offer feedback on your work. I will work with you to meet learning goals. I will offer extra help and alternative assessments should you require them. I am available after school to offer help; I want you to be successful
