    Behavior Expectations

     

    • Follow the classroom rules.
    • It is important for you to be in class every day. All work must be done in class so if you are absent you will need to come for tutorials.

     

     

     

     

    Ms. Mills’ Classroom Rules

     

     

     

     

    • You may not use phones or listen to music during class when I am direct teaching.
    • You must sit in your assigned seat at all times because you are responsible for your assigned computer during class.
    • Do not roll past the area of your desk or spin in your chair.
    • Work needs to be turned in on time.
    • If you cheat, you and the person you copied from will both receive zeros and I will call your parents.
    • You are responsible for making sure you get the notes and assignments when you are out.
    • All work must be done during class or in my tutorials.
    • It’s important for you to be in class every day because we work from bell to bell so you will have a class period worth of work to catch up on for each class missed.
    • As soon as you come to class, log on to the computer so you will be ready for class.

     

    I’m looking forward to a fun and exciting year.  Please see me if you have any questions, or need special help.
