    Parents, thank you so much for reading and signing your child's agenda everyday!  That is a great way for us to keep the lines of communication open. 

    Please look for their conduct card inside the red take home folder on Tuesdays and sign/return. The students are allowed to make corrections on papers less than 70.

    The grades for my class will mainly be inside their notebooks. The writing/language arts notebook stays in class. They will have their social studies notebook with them and are responsible for bringing it to class daily. They are allowed to take them home for you to review. Just make sure they are returned because we use it EVERYDAY.

                     LB- library book was either in their locker or didn't have one

                     NB- notebook was in locker

                     2/NB - notebook was left at home

                      RR- students go to restroom in the morning, during locker time after second class, and after elective.  Please encourage them to go during these times to avoid missing classtime.  This is a HUGE problem for my second period class.  I even ask them to go before coming to class and they DO NOT.  They would rather go during class and then need additional time to complete assignments.



    BYOD:  Students must turn in a form to use devices in class.  Please have them completely charged!  If they are using it without permission or working off task, they will not be allowed to use it for 30 days in my class.  

    No social media, texting, pictures and only appropriate games.  (No blood/killing)

    Only happy, cheerful, colorful school appropriate games!



    8am (Everyday EXCEPT Tuesdays) If your child needs to come, simply write PASS 116 in their agenda on the day they're coming and this will allow them to my class.
