Classroom Routines and Procedures
WHEN I ARRIVE AT SCHOOL: There will be bell work on my desk. Once I put my things away, I will do my bell work and prepare for the day!
IF I ARRIVE LATE: I go straight to the office to let them know I have arrived then come to class.
IF I AM ABSENT, OR KNOW I WILL BE ABSENT: It is my responsibility to see I what I missed, and let the teacher know if I will be away ahead of time
DISMISSAL AT THE BELL: Dismissed only when given permission (not by the bell)
MOVING AROUND THE CLASS: must be in desk at all times DURING instruction, unless otherwise given permission. AFTER instruction, you may move around the classroom to sharpen pencil, see teacher, get Kleenex, use the bathroom…
USING THE BATHROOM: Get agenda signed, and take with you. Must write reason for leaving and time.
HOMEWORK: record all homework in Agenda. Homework is to be completed on time, and at school. There will be homework checks throughout the year.
*AGENDA is used for moving around the school during class time, homework, tests, notes to parents, and reminders.
*When using agenda to leave room I must state the REASON and TIME before getting signed by teacher.
*Agenda is to written in every day, and taken home every night!
COMPUTERS: Must ALWAYS have permission from a teacher to use the computers/home devices (including phones)
EXTRA-TIME: Complete all homework, silently read, peer-help, clean desk, extra-time activities…
MOVING AROUND THE SCHOOL: Must have agenda signed to leave the room during class hours
PLAYGROUND: Stay to side allocated to grade 7-8 unless otherwise given permission
ASKING QUESTIONS/TALKING: Always raise your hand. Talking is never allowed when the teacher is instructing. Use Sound vs. Noise during work periods, or group work.

Classroom behavior system:
Individuals are assessed based on the class behavior rubric (next slide). If the class reaches the goal set for the behavior average, there will be a class reward party. If the class does not meet the average, all individuals who did meet or exceed the average will be rewarded or have their name put in a draw for a prize.
Behaviour system will also be use to determine if you are allowed to participate in special class/school activities. For example: if you do not maintain the expected average, you may not be allowed to attend a school dance, or participate in a class outing.

Good to know…
LOCKERS; assigned, and labeled according to number on desk name tag.
SEATING PLAN: This is only a temporary seating plan. You will likely be moved once I learn everyone's name and more about each one of you! There will be assigned seating according to the best interests of the class, and I usually like to change the desks around every two-three months.
