General Class Information

Daily Supplies:

Tips for success:

*Complete assignments the night they are assigned, especially for Language Arts because I 

will see you EVERY day, unlike most other classes.


*It is the student’s responsibility to collect absent work when you return to school. This 

may be done during advisory, before school, or by checking class webpage. You have 1 day 

for each day absent to complete the work, this includes tests and quizzes. There is no 

extension on projects that were previously assigned. They are due the day you return from 

being absent.

*Check Power School and class webpage often. Every week it will be updated with class 

assignments. Grades will also be updated once a week. All teachers are required to update 

grades weekly, but not on a certain day. Typically, grades will be updated after several 

assignments have been graded. In addition, when possible I will attach notes and/or 

assignments to webpage for your convenience at home. I do realize that sometimes papers 

are forgotten at school so whenever possible you can print them from webpage; however, 

do not rely on this! Sometimes the assignments and/or notes are too large to attach and 

that is NOT an excuse for your assignment to be late! Additional copies of assignments can 

always be found in the classroom in the extra copy bin.

*Use your time wisely, during class and advisory. If you have any time available, use it to 

 complete assignments, read, etc. Social talking is not suggested during this time.
