Daily work• Individual work/group work – All work should be done individually unless you are instructed to work with another student. – Letting someone “see” your homework from the previous night will be considered cheating. • Finishing work early – If you finish work early, you will be expected to read silently. On occasion, you will be given permission to work on assignments from other classes.• Late work – You need to complete any late work before the unit test is given in order to receive credit AND you must adhere to the 5-30 rule.
Break time!• Restroom and Locker Breaks – You will be expected to use the restroom and go to your locker before homeroom and between classes as needed. – With 5 minutes between classes, there should be no need for anyone to have an “emergency” restroom need during class time. – “I left it in my locker” will never be an acceptable excuse in this class.
lunch• When I tell you to line up, you will be expected to silently line up along the wall around the corner from my classroom.• There is NO talking while walking in the hallway.• You will enter line A and sit at the assigned tables in Row 3.• Make sure you have everything you need before leaving the line – no going back.• If you need to get up for any reason, you need to raise your hand, and a 7B teacher will assist you.
Class dismissal• Although the bell will ring at the end of each period, I will be the one to dismiss you.• One of my pet peeves is when students pack up before the bell so don’t do it!• Pick up all paper and other stuff under and around your desk and throw it away on your way out of the classroom.

The last one out of the room will turn off the lights and close the door.• Gum/Food/Candy – No eating in class. Period.• Talking/Stop Talking – When I raise my hand, that is your signal to stop talking.• Consequences (ugh!) – You will receive one warning, and then your DMC card will be marked for any non-compliance!
