A- Act Responsible and make good choices
R- Respect yourself, others, teacher and supplies
T- Talk quietly when appropriate
- Come into class quietly, sit in assigned seat and start on warm- up. Make sure you have your pencil ready to go.
- Listen during instructions and ask questions. When I need your attention, I will count down from five to zero. At zero, everyone should be silent and paying attention.
- While working, students may talk quietly to their tablemates. Talking to other tables is not allowed.
- The bell doesn’t dismiss you, the teacher does. Students will ONLY be dismissed when their table and floor space is clean and they have put away materials correctly and are sitting quietly.
- Bathroom is to be used before or after class.
- No food is allowed in the room. Water with a lid is ok.
Consequences: Students that fail to meet any of the expectations or follow procedures will be given a warning. If the behavior doesn’t change, the student will talk with me in the hallway. If a third warning is given, then I will make parent contact.
