Yellow folders with graded work, important announcements, or documents for parents to sign will be given to students each Wednesday. They must come back to school with students on Friday.

 

Reading Logs:

Students are expected to read at home a minimum of 20 minutes each day. Parents must sign off that the student has accurately filled in their reading log. They are due every Friday, and must be turned in via Reporting Folder.

 

Homework:

Each night, students will be responsible for a homework assignment or studying the notes they take in class to ensure they understand the content. Students will have frequent formative quizzes to reinforce their notes and homework. The key to success in this class is nightly study and review. Class time will be given to ensure all students have enough time to write any assigned homework in their student planner. Parents are expected to initial next to each homework assignment on the day it is assigned to show they have seen it. 

 

Make-Up Work:

If a student is absent, they are responsible for making up their assignments (including notes) during study hall, or during recess. If papers are returned on a day a student is absent, ask the teacher to return those assignments.

If a student is absent on test day, they need to make arrangements to make up their test. If a student needs to make up missing assignments or tests due to an approved absence, they have until the next Monday to complete and hand them in for full credit. After this period, there will be a 50% late deduction.

 

Cell Phone Policy:

Refer to the student handbook for the cell phone policy.

 

Classroom Conduct:

Be safe. Be respectful. Be responsible. Be scholarly.

Students are expected to be ethical on all course assignments. Cheating will not be tolerated and will result in no credit.  Contributing to cheating will also result in no credit. In addition, a referral will be written and a conference with the parents will be requested.  Cheating is defined as receiving any help on any assignment unless specifically instructed to do so.

Students should write their names on each assignment in order to receive credit for that assignment.  Failure to do so will result in no credit. Student name, first and last, the class, and the date should be included in the upper right hand corner. Spelling counts on all assignments.  Points will be deducted for misspelled words.

Respect others in the room, especially when they are speaking. Students may not agree with what they are saying, but they do have the right to say it.

Empty your mouth when you enter the room.  Students will not be permitted to chew gum, eat, or drink in the classroom. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action.

Students should take care of personal grooming in the restrooms between classes.  It is inappropriate to comb your hair, or apply lotion in the classroom.

Students are responsible for all notes taken in class, all information contained in the text, and all information in films, filmstrips, and other audio-visual presentations.

Students will adhere to any/all Saint Michael policies/regulations according to the student handbook.

 

Lockers:

Students are given two lockers to store their belongings. Their student planner, pencil case, and any books are to be put in the top locker. Their backpack, lunch, and jacket are stored in the bottom locker.

 

Transitioning Between Classes:

Unless they have a pass and are going to use the restroom, students are never left unsupervised outside of the classroom. When traveling between classes, they will always be accompanied by the teacher. When traveling outside of the classroom, students are expected to walk quietly behind the teacher in two lines. The acronym H.A.L.L.S. details all travel expectations outside the classroom.

H: Hands to your side, or holding materials in front of you

A: All eyes forward

L: Lips zipped

L: Low speed

S: Stick together
