WELCOME TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT!
How To Be Prepared For Your Science Class:
Bring all supplies to class each day
Do all assignments both in class and homework
Have an open mind and a positive attitude
► Responsibility. You need to come to class prepared each day, and with all required materials.
► Accountability. Students must turn in homework at the beginning of class. Late work (at the discretion of the teacher) may either be not accepted, given ½-credit, or on larger assignments be reduced by one letter grade per day. If you are absent, ask a classmate, or contact the teacher via email or note. Illegible writing will not be accepted. Use blue or black ink only, or typed, and include your heading (name, date, and period) on all submissions.
► Respect. All students will respect themselves, each other, the teacher, the classroom, the textbooks, and personal belongings.
► Participation. Both the district and the state standards include public listening and speaking. If students do not participate, their grades may be lower. If students disrupt the class and cannot employ good listening skills, a conference may be requested. Frequent absences also affect learning, and especially their grades.
