Entering: Please enter the classroom with proper decorum. You may talk quietly,
but please do not be disruptive. When the bell rings signaling the beginning of the

Seating Chart
There will be an assigned seating chart for class.
All students are expected to be in their assigned seats, unless directed otherwise.
Seating charts will be changed periodically. If you have a problem with your assigned seat, please talk to me privately, and it will be taken into consideration.
The bell does NOT dismiss students. Please stay in seats and continue working until dismissed by the teacher. Do not pack up until directed to by me.

Projects are an integral part of the gifted and advanced curriculum. It is my effort to include a variety of types of projects to allow each student an opportunity to exhibit his/her strengths, as well as explore new ways of attacking class information. Types of projects may include written papers, oral reports, group presentation, multimedia (computer, video, etc.), and artistic drawing/sculpture/poetry/song) presentations. Project requirements and grading procedures will be included with each project’s description sheet.
