Tests dates, major speaking and written assignments will be announced in advanced to give students time to prepare for the assessment. All assignments must be turned in or presented on due date to avoid penalty.
Attendance is important because the student will learn the most by actively participating during class. Students the first week of school need to make advance arrangements with another classmate so to collect assignments/handouts and to take notesin the event of an absence. When a student is absent it becomes the student’s responsibility to seek out missed class work, homework, and to turn in assignments that were due on the day(s) missed. Do not interrupt class to get missed assignments. See Ms. Stacy at the end of the class period, during her planning period or after school for information.
