Classroom Procedures
Arrive to class on time. Enter the classroom in an orderly fashion. Take out all materials for class and hang your backpack on the desk hook . Sit quietly in your seat and begin copying your assignments in your planner and working on your bell work. Leave your planner open on your desk for me to initial. If you finish early, read your AR book quietly.
Please come to class prepared with pens, paper, homework, etc. If you forgot a pen, see me to borrow one during class. If you need paper, take a few sheets from the tray on the table. Do not make "borrowing" from me or a classmate a habit.

It's YOUR responsibility to be prepared for class every day.
Work quietly.

There will be times when you will work with classmates in pairs or small groups. When working with others, please speak in a low voice and take turns. Everyone cannot all speak at once. One person should speak at a time. Be respectful and listen to others. Participate.
Getting Your Attention...
High Five
When talking has been allowed and I need
to get your attention and get the class
I will raise my hand and smile. :)
Please do not call out my name...that's just rude.
When I give this signal, I expect all students to immediately stop talking, raise their hand, and listen attentively for my next directive.
You are expected to complete all assignments on time. You may not have WRITTEN homework every night, but you are expected to study each night and look over your notes/classwork/homework that was covered and/or corrected in class. Of course, complete all written homework/assignments and study a little each night. Do NOT procrastinate and cram for tests or quizzes or rush through a project. Plan ahead and work diligently. A little studying and review each night helps a lot!! Don't be like the student in the pic!!
Assignments, Homework, and Projects
Homework should be completed before class begins. Do NOT work on homework in class UNLESS I HAVE GIVEN PERMISSION.

If you are absent, it is YOUR responsibility to get your make-up work from the box and complete it. You will have the same number of days to complete the make-up work as you were absent.
A little about me...
Please complete all ELA assignments in
pens will be used only to correct your work, homework, etc. in class.
NO food , drinks, or gum is allowed in class.
Cell phones must be kept OFF at all times during school. You may keep your cell phone in the zipper pocket of your binder. The phone must be OFF. If it is seen or goes off, a teacher or staff member will take it, and your parent will need to see the assistant principal to get it back.

"Ohana" means family, and family means nobody gets left behind. I am here for you and I love you with all of
my heart!

Mrs. Zumo
I am proud to say this is my 22nd year in teaching. I taught elementary grades for 15 years, but I love teaching middle school. I am a graduate of LSU and am working on my Master's degree in school counseling, and I will graduate in May!

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Mike, for 24 years. We have 3 beautiful daughters. Hannah is a sophomore this year at Southeastern Louisiana University. She wants to be a first grade teacher. Our twins are Heather & Heidi and they are sophomores at Central High School. They are very athletic and love playing fastpitch softball.

I look forward to a great year with all of you, my new students for this school year!
Stitch, as Elvis, is our official classroom mascot!
