Students must turn in all assignments on time. Late assignments are -10 points per day, after 5 days if the assignment is complete the student recieves a 50 automatically. The only assignments that will be accepted after the due date are assignments from students with an excused absence or prior discussion with the teacher.
Students and parents should be sure to contact me via email with any questions or concerns. If you want to schedule a conference please send a request by email or call the school and leave a message. High School faculty conference day is Wednesday. We prefer to meet during first period with parents.
After school tutoring will be offered on Wednesdays from 3:00 PM until 3:45 PM. Students must provide their own transportation home and be picked up promptly. If for some reason I must cancel tutoring, I will notify the students on my Website the day before when possible or via the television message system at school if an emergency should arise. After school tutoring will begin September 12, 2012.
Students earn grades, teachers only put the scores made by the students in the grade book. If you want to achieve a different score change the choices you have been making in that class. You and only you hold the key to your success. Teachers just open the door to learning, it is your choice to walk through that door.
Be sure to sign up for parent assistant. You will be able to see your son's/daughter's grade for each class.
Come to class daily with all the necessary supplies: Pencils, paper, composition books, erasers, appropriate textbook for the class period, any homework assigned from the prior day.
