the office.

Attendance Policy- I will take role at the beginning of class when the bell rings, students will need to be

school daily; however, in the event of an absence you must attend school on Friday of that same week.
Students must flex in order to earn credit for a class. Failure to flex will result in failure of that class,
regardless of your grade in the class; this is school policy. All classwork for weeks 1-4 MUST be turned
in prior to the Midterm Exam. I will not collect late work past the due date. All classwork for weeks 5-8

My classroom is a safe and free environment. I want my students to feel free to share their own thoughts,
however, you must respect your fellow students and their thoughts. Our classroom will be like its own
society, and therefore we must work together. It is our job as future citizens of America to become a great
nation, greater than the one we are today. I am not here to make life more difficult for you. I am here to
educate you as much as I can on the history of the United States. This Course will not be easy, but I
promise you, I will try to make it as fun as I possibly can. My goal is to successfully equip you with all
the knowledge of US History in a short amount of time. In order for me to do this I need your help, your
focus and especially your participation. I need to know that you are grasping the information on a daily
basis. Let me know if you do not understand, if you do not want to raise your hand in class, write your
question on your exit ticket. Success in my classroom starts with you! It is a partnership, and I am in it
with you. I am here for you when you need me. Do not let anyone get in the way of your future. You are
in control and I will help you reach your goals and be successful. I cannot wait to see all of you grow
academically, as well as become the citizens I know you all can be.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
