    A binder will be kept daily to include notes, assignments, quizzes and test reviews and will be graded at the end of the six weeks and used as a daily grade.  All assignments, quizzes and tests should be done in pencil.  A paper that is in pen or colored pencil will have 10 points deducted from it.

    You will be given at least two day's notice before a test.  A review will be given the day before the test.  If you are absent the day of the test, you will make it up on the day you return to class. 

    You may be given daily quizzes throughout the six weeks.  They will help you keep up with the assignments that we have gone over.  If you are absent on the day of the quiz, you will need to make it up immediately upon returning to class. These quizzes will be averaged together for a test grade in the class.

    Homework/Daily assignments will be assigned in class regularly and should be completed before attending the next class.  Some daily assignments may be due in class.  Homework will be used as practice for quizzes and tests.  Homework due dates will be given in class.

    Late work is highly discouraged!  I will follow the district guidelines for late work. See your student handbook.  If you are going to be absent for an extracurricular event, it is your responsibility to get your work and be ready to return to class when your event is over.  If you are missing a test or quiz, you will need to make arrangements with me before you go.

    If you are absent from school that does not involve extra-curricular activities, you will be allowed 2 days for each day absent to turn in your work.  It is your responsibility to get your makeup work and to turn it in.  You may always request work from the office so that you do not get behind.   

    Tutorials are held in the morning and afternoon.  I plan on being available for tutoring by 7:30 am each morning.  I plan on being available till at least 4 pm afterschool.  Arrangements can also me made with me during lunch.   

    An assignment sheet will be given to all.  The daily assignments should be recorded on it.  You may record your grades as well.

    1. Bring supplies and be in the class ready to learn as soon as the bell rings.
    2. Respect others and their property especially the classroom supplies that are shared by all.
    3. Obey all school policies.
