Why we have Rules
• In order to guarantee each
student an appropriate learning
environment, I will insist on
compliance with the following
rules or the stated
consequences will follow…
Prepared – Students will
arrive in class on time with
required materials and be
sitting in their assigned seats
when the tardy bell rings.
Rule # 2
Respect – Students will not be rude
or disrespectful to other students or
the teacher at any time. Students
will interact with students and Ms.
Rampey during class activities in
appropriate ways raising their hand
when necessary in order to not
disrupt the class.
Rule # 3
Reactive – Students will
participate in a positive and
orderly manner; there will be
no sleeping, writing notes,
applying make-up, or
consuming of food or
Rule # 4
• Responsible – Students will
be responsible for completing
all class work, keeping their
area clean and will treat
property and others in a
“Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
give up, never give up, never
give up, never give up.”
You are not allowed to give up in this
class. Once you give up you have
forfeited your ability to pass this class.
• Discipline will be given in the following manner.
– First offense – Student will be warned.
– Second offense – Student will be assigned D-
Hall and parent will be notified.
– Third offense – Student will be sent to his or her
** Immediate dismissal from class with a zero for
the day’s class work may occur at the teachers
discretion when student disruption is threatening
the learning environment of other students.
• Guidelines for
AGENDA… ACTIVITY… HOMEWORK… GROUP WORK…
NOTEBOOK… TEST… PROJECTS…
• Detailed activities are posted
daily, and a long – term calendar is
also posted. These will be altered
as needed. Students are
encouraged to copy down daily
schedules in their agendas each
day at the beginning of the hour.
Classroom activities correspond with the
information provided in the course textbook
and curriculum. Activities encourage
creativity, cooperation, and problem solving
skills. Additional activities may be research
projects, creative writing, art projects, and
other relevant assignments.
• Many classroom activities
will be performed in
cooperative groups where
each member is assigned
to perform a specific role
required by the activity.
• Homework will be required in order
to move through the course
material at a reasonable pace.
Homework will be assigned on a
regular basis and will be expected
on the due date. I have high
expectations for all of my students
and expect all to be succesful.
• On most days students will have an assignment to
complete at the beginning of class. You are expected to
be working on the assignment by the time the bell rings.
– Look at the daily agenda and find out if you have a
beginning assignment. The assignment will be on the
board. Often the assignment will lead into what we
are doing in class for the day.
– Bell Work should be completed on a sticky
note and added to that days homework page in
• Every student must do their own work
on all assignments. Cheating of any kind
will receive a zero and school
disciplinary action as well as contact of
your parent. Plagiarism includes copying
from a book, notes, encyclopedia, the
internet, magazines, newspapers, or
You must do your own work!!
