Let's take a look at some of the things we will be working on this year!
Being Excused from the Room

We're are not allowed to let you leave the classroom unless it is an emergency.

So if you ask to leave, be prepared to go to the office first!
Everyone in our classroom community deserves to be treated with respect. If someone is talking, everyone else is listening.
Communication is key.

If you're struggling or want something more from this class, PLEASE talk to me about what I can do to help you!
We will be using our laptops for our writings, research, projects, and will submit all assignments on Google Classroom.
IF I notice that you are off-task, you will be given a warning or blank screen then computer will be taken away.

Later today, we will sign a technology contract to make sure things like this don't happen.
When working in groups use your "inside voices" and discuss the subject matter.
Challenge yourself to think outside the box and achieve new levels of greatness.
Let me know when you need help, your likes and dislikes, and tell me about your life outside of class!
Reading and writing are vital to this class. So be prepared to do both DAILY!!
