Entering the Classroom:
As you enter the room, please be seated
quickly and quietly
.
Everyone should be begin working on the bell ringer activity.
Place your homework on the corner of your table to be picked up.
End of Class:
Begin to clean up and put your materials away only
AFTER
you have been given instructions to do so.
DO NOT
get ready to leave early.
Put
ALL
supplies, materials, and equipment back in the appropriate place. Clean up any trash; wipe down the table if needed.
Remain at your seat until
I
dismiss you.
Finishing Early:
Use this time efficiently and wisely by studying your notes, background information, vocabulary or read a book.

Do not use extra time to socialize with people around you; you will distract those who need time to finish their work.
Getting Materials, Supplies and Equipment:
General materials (stapler, hole punch, tape, etc) for student use are kept on the desk by the door. Other supplies are in different places around the room. Just ask!
***Materials on the teacher’s desk are OFF LIMITS to students. Do not touch anything on the back bookcase unless told to do so.
Pick up supplies AFTER you have been given instructions to do so.
Supplies, materials, and equipment already on your table at the start of class
must be left alone
until instructions are given for their use.
Test/Projects/Quizzes:
Test and projects are worth 50% of your grade.
There will be a test at the end of each unit. We will review prior to the test and you will have ample time to study.
Projects will be assigned and graded according to a rubric. You will have ample time to complete each project.
You will never have a "pop quiz" you will have time to review prior to taking it. Generally these will be given midway through a unit.
Homework:
Homework is due the following day unless otherwise noted.
Due dates will always be posted on the board behind my desk.
If you do not turn your homework in when it is collected then it is considered late you will receive a
zero
.
***Do NOT throw it in my bin!
Leaving the Classroom During Class:
TO GO TO THE RESTROOM or WATER FOUNTAIN:
Do not interrupt instructions, class discussion, or student questions to ask to leave the room.
Only one person may leave the room at a time. Sign the bathroom binder when you leave and when you return.
If you feel sick or faint, ask immediately. This is the one time when it is not rude to interrupt. If you feel like you are going to be sick and do not have time to ask, go straight to the restroom!
You will
NOT
leave the classroom to go to your locker or computer lab to finish assignments for me or another class.
Borrowing Pencils:
ALWAYS
be prepared with all of your supplies
BEFORE
class begins.
I will not sharpen pencils during class. There are sharpens pencils for you to borrow on the bookcase if you forgot or yours breaks.
I suggest mechanical pencils. NO PENS!!!
Sign the board when you borrow and erase your name when you return.
Never get up or ask to borrow something while someone is talking. This is very inconsiderate and shows bad manners.
Fire Drill:
Stop whatever you are doing and line up at the door.
Last person out shut the door.
We go through the hall and wait by Father's house. A count of students will be taken.
Absolutely NO TALKING or GOOFING around whatsoever!
Tornado Drill:
Stop whatever you are doing and line up at the door.
Last person out shuts the door.
We go to the main hallway and get as close as possible on the floor "like ducks".
Absolutely NO TALKING or GOOFING around whatsoever!
Lock Down Drill:
When you hear,
"Professor Brown is in the building"
you stop whatever you are doing and get on the floor to the science table and wall area. NOT THE LOCKERS! They make too much noise.
One person will be assigned to put the green card in the window alerting authorities that we are in the classroom and safe.
Another person(s) will place the fabric over the door so no one can see that we are inside.
Absolutely NO SOUND whatsoever!
Test/Projects/Quizzes:
Test and projects are worth 50% of your grade.
There will be a test at the end of each unit. We will review prior to the test and you will have ample time to study.
Projects will be assign and graded according to a rubric. You will have ample time to complete each project.
You will never have a "pop quiz" you will have time to review prior to taking it. Generally these will be given midway through a unit.
Assignments:
Grades will be earned according to accuracy, correctness, and neatness. Assignments must be done in pencil, unless otherwise discussed.
You may print or write in cursive. Writing that cannot be read cannot be graded and will have to be redone.
**All work is due when called for in class; worked turned in at any time after this will be considered late.
Assignments must include name, date and grade level on the first 3 lines of the paper on the right hand side.
Incomplete work will not be accepted for full credit.
Assignment notebooks will be checked periodically.
You need to organize yourself with a folder or 3-ring binder,
KEEP EVERYTHING!
Make-Up Work:
Make-up work is the responsibility of the student.
Students have two days for each day absent to complete the missing work.
If you have questions, PLEASE ask!
Tests/Quizzes:
Tests must be made-up before or after school. Students must communicate with me on when the test will be made-up. This needs to happen within two days of being absent.

Many quizzes will be given over the school year. Some quizzes will be used as bonus points and never count against your grade.

*** If you are absent, you lose the opportunity to receive bonus points!
Academic Dishonesty:
Copying the work of another student, using notes during tests and quizzes without permission, copying and pasting from electronic media (plagiarizing) or providing answers to other students.

When academic dishonesty occurs:
All students involved will earn a zero for the assignment. Parents will be notified and detention will be assigned.

Damaging School Property:
Any damage to school property will require restitution on the part of the student. The type of restitution depends on extent of the damage.
Destroyed items will be paid for or replaced by the student.
Damaging school property includes, but is not limited to: Writing or carving on desks, stools, walls or any other school property, writing in books, tearing pages in a book or intentionally breaking or excessive use of art supplies.
Course Description:
Science is a process of building theories from evidence. Middle School Science provides opportunities to develop and practice many of the skills that scientists demonstrate. This class helps students become aware that their ideas change over time as they confront new evidence or use new tools or models to examine data.
Goals:
Students will be able to understand scientific explanations, generate scientific evidence, reflect on scientific knowledge, and participate productively in science.
Requirements:
You must bring to class each day:
assignment notebook
notebook/paper
folder/binder
highlighter
pencil
