    black paw  Respect is key to a successful learning environment. Any form of disrespect or interruption to the classroom learning environment will result in the consequence of ISI!

    black paw  No Late Work! If you turn an assignment in and earn a low grade, redo assignment on a new sheet of paper and staple to original to earn back points.

    black paw  Homework:  Study 15-20 minutes every night!  Redo assignments with a low grade on a new sheet of paper and staple to the original to earn back points. To study means... you should be re-writing notes, re-drawing diagrams, re-solving questions on your brain warm ups and assignments, and discussing concepts with a friend, parent, pet, etc.  To study is to be an active participant in your learning! This is a part of the process to be able to learn for keeps.

The corrections need to be made on a separate sheet of paper and stapled to the original quiz. These corrections need to take place within 24 hours of receiving the graded quiz. (Tests are not eligible for retakes as it is a summative score and represents mastery of content.)
