Have all supplies
Enter quietly
Be in your assigned seat

Make sure you read or listen to the
instructions and understand the requirements.
If you didn't understand, ask a neighbor. If you
still don't understand, ask me.
If you are asked for help, be polite and kind.
When we talk to others, it should be no louder than a whisper.
Respect each other.
Use your time wisely.
