  1. 1.  Come on time & prepared to class every day. This means:
  • Bring a writing utensil.
  • Bring a 3-ring binder.
  • Bring your laptop charged.
  • Bring completed work in the binder.
  • Be in your seat when the bell rings.


  1. 2.  Keep an organized binder

Use dividers for each class and take the time to put papers where they go.  This means fewer lost papers!


  1. 3.  Use your laptop for school purposes. 

Game-playing and music-listening is not why you have been given a laptop. This drains the battery and eats up time that should be spent on assignments.  Do these things at home on your personal time.  Occasionally, it will be appropriate to use headphones to watch a video (or even listen to music during work time).  However, headphones are not allowed for at least the first 15 minutes of class when instructions are given, and only after permission has been granted by your teacher.  Music is a privilege; not a right.  Abuse it and lose it.


  1. 4.   Be polite and courteous to all. 

Follow reasonable requests made by all adults.  Speak with kindness.  Offer a helping hand when you can.


  1. 5.  Follow all safety precautions and school rules. 

Cell phones and other electronics should be off and out of sight during the school day (8:35 to 3:01).
