60–69% D
Less than 60% F



I give about 30 minutes of homework, 5 days per week.

With few exceptions, the homework is always the same:

Late Work

I accept late work until the last week of the grading period.


Bring the following things to class with you every day:


1 Raise your hand. Don't talk out of turn.
2 Treat others with courtesy.
3 No cell phones, iPads, or other electronic devices.
4 No eating, gum, candy, or drinking (except water).
5 No computer games.

7 Never throw anything. Clean up your own mess.
8 Don't leave before the bell.
9 Don't sit behind the teacher's desk.
10 Follow the teacher's instructions.


Citizenship grades are based on your behavior. A "U" for citizenship may affect your ability to participate in certain school activities (dances, sports, field trips, etc.).

E = Excellent
S = Satisfactory
W = Warning
U = Unsatisfactory
