Classroom Procedures
Entering the Classroom: 1. Be in the room and seated before the bell rings. If you arent in the room, youre tardy 2. Have your computer, a writing utensil, and your independent reading book 3. Begin working quietly on the Bellringer displayed on the projector 4. When I ask for your attention that means you listen Tardies: If you are not in the classroom when the bell rings, you are tardy. If you are in rst block on either red or white days this means you will have to go down and get a pass from the tardy desk. Computer, Pencil or Pen, and Other Materials: There is a supply closet at the back of the classroom where extra materials are kept. It is expected that each student have a writing utensil and independent reading book each day in class. If you forget on occasion to bring a writing utensil, you can borrow one from the supply closet, but if it becomes an every day occurrence we will have to nd another system. Daily Assignments: We will have many different types of assignments. On a daily basis you will complete a Bellringer, practice work, writing activity, and ticket out. You will keep track of your writings and assignments in your notebook which you will leave in class. Turning in Assignments and Late Work Policy: I will always give you due dates on assignments that will be graded ahead of time. It is your responsibility to keep track of when assignments are due. All assignments will be turned in to me and I will pass them back after they have been graded so we can discuss them. Late assignments are not accepted unless you have a late pass. It is your job to check your grades on PowerSchool and with your CAMP teacher so you know if you have missed something. Your Responsibilities After an Absence: After you are absent it will be your responsibility to get your make-up assignments. To retrieve assignments from days you were absent, go to the class website under Daily Assignments at: www.michaudenglish9.weebly.com. It is your responsibility to come in before or after school to make up the lesson and/or ask any questions you may have. If you need to make something up it needs to be during this time and no other. If you need to schedule a specic time before or after school to make up work, arrange that with me please. All assignments from an absence are due the next class period after returning. For example, if you were absent Monday and returned to class on Wednesday, the assignment is due on Friday. If it is not turned in at that time you will need a late pass. Ending Class The end of the class period is when nal announcements and tickets out are given. You need to be in your seats and listening at this time. Lining up at the door is not an option; you will stay seated until the bell rings! If you are at the door or out of your seat when the bell rings you will receive one warning before being written up and/or held after class. 3rd block on red and white days will put their chairs up on the tables and stand by their seat until the bell rings.
