Timmy has been working very hard in math class! He's been coming to class every day, always raises his hand to ask a question, and helps other students. If he keeps up the good work I'm sure he'll have an A this year!

** Students will be sent to the office immediately for severe disruptions.
Let's see what some of the consequences are in Mrs. Hendrix's class...
Being Excused from the Room
•You may leave the room for emergencies only. Use your passing period to take care of business. If you do need to take an emergency restroom break, wait until I am finished with direct instruction. You must sign out in the orange binder by the door, take the hall pass, and sign in when you return.

Be honest
As stated in the student handbook, cell phone use is permitted during passing times and lunch.  
Food and drinks are allowed during class as long as they do not become a distraction and you clean up your mess!
When you are working on independent practice activities in class, you are allowed to listen to music, provided you follow the guidelines listed below:  

* If I see your phone, you will have a choice:
Be appropriate
Conduct yourself as a mature, well-mannered young adult. Think before speaking, and make sure all contributions to the class dialogue are meaningful and pertinent. Take care of personal business when the time is appropriate. Use your privileges wisely.
- 3 Prong folder
- College-Rule Paper
- Composition book
- Supply for classroom
- Pen/Pencil, highlighters
* You will be expected to have your notebook and supplies for class each day.
You are juniors and should be able to manage your time and restroom breaks wisely WITHOUT disrupting the class.

Abuse of this privilege will result in students being issued hall passes with a specified number of "punches," or restroom breaks.
Late work will always be accepted, but will receive a grade of 50%!
It is your responsibility to find out what you missed and to make up the assignment.
I do not give extra-credit assignments. However, I will give extra-credit points on assignments that have exceeded the requirements set forth. This will be explained in advance. If you think you may need extra credit, take advantage of credit offered.
Concerns? Talk to me during tutorial.
We will be using Canvas in our classroom this year. It is similar to Google Classroom or Edmodo, and you will be able to access your assignments, quizzes, tests, and grades in Canvas. More information coming soon!

During class, phones must be turned off or silenced.
Phones must be kept PUT AWAY (pocket, purse, backpack), unless the teacher gives specific permission to allow phone use.
* We will take it to an admin after class, where it will stay for the remainder of the day.
* Place it in the Cell Phone Bag (it will remain on your desk for the rest of class)
You must use your phone/iPod for music only; no playing with it repeatedly. YouTube will NOT work for this! You must have music/app that will allow you to push play and put your phone in your pocket.
You must use headphones for listening to personal music, leaving one earbud out so all teacher instruction can be heard.
This privilege may be revoked at any time, for individuals or full classes who abuse it, at the teacher's discretion.
