Homework happens! It is an important part of the learning process and will be assigned on a
regular basis to support the skills and concepts learned in class.

Late homework is DISCOURAGED. If you turn in an assignment late, the grade will be reduced
by 25% if it is one day late and you will receive a checkmark on your weekly assessment.
Anything past 2 days late will not be accepted.

We ALL have bad days!! Each marking period I will eliminate your lowest grade so that one bad
day will not hurt you.

Our Rules

Our classroom rules revolve around the Viking Values of Respect, Responsibility and Safety.
The rules are as follows:

      Be Respectful

   -Raise your hand and wait to be called on before speaking.
   -Encourage Everyone
   -Touch only your own property

      Be Responsible
   -Be on time for class
   -Bring all required materials for class

      Be Safe
   -Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself
Our Consequences

2nd Offense:       Stay 1 minute after class – no late pass given
3rd Offense:       Call Home
4th Offense:       Send to Office

Severe Clause:     Any severe disruptions in class will be reported to the office immediately.

Weekly Assessment Sheet

Each week you will be given an assessment sheet. The purpose of this sheet is to monitor your
homework, preparation, behavior as well as classroom participation. You must have this sheet
with you every day and your goal is to keep this sheet blank each week If there are no
checkmarks or notes on the sheet, then you have met the expectations for the week in the
classroom. Students maintaining a clean weekly assessment sheet will have the opportunity to
participate in a classroom game.

-If you miss class for any reason, it is your responsibility to obtain the make-up work.

-Make-up work will be labeled and on the student information table

-Check the model binder for additional information/notes that you may have missed.

-My website will have all of the daily assignments posted and is a good source of information.
