      In our classroom we will practice PAWS expectations.  I beleive that if we are upholding these expectations and respecting ourselves, others and property, the rest will follow.     

    What to Expect...

    No student has the right to interfere with the learning, safety, teaching, and well being of others.

    *When absent, get your assignments from the "Absent Folder", ask your classmates about the assignments and check the assignment board before consulting the teacher.  The teacher will be happy to help you if your classmates cannot answer your questions.  Just because you are absent, you are not excused from the work.

    *Use computers for class related work only.   

    *Students are expected to use the time provided before or after school and during lunch recess to use the bathroom.  However, if it is necessary to use the restroom during class time, you may only leave during individual class work time.  Students must be at their desk during all teaching instruction.  Permission must be given by the teacher in order to use the restroom during class time.  Please fill out the sign out sheet provided and make sure to sign back in when you return.  

    *Take the appropriate pass when you leave (i.e. bathroom pass or hall pass).  Your pass is your passport to other places on campus.

    *Gum is not allowed on campus. (Detentions will be issued for continued gum chewing.)

    *Water bottles are permitted in the classroom; however, students are not allowed to punch holes in their water bottles.  Water bottles may be taken away at the teacher’s discretion if the student’s use is distracting from the learning of the classroom.  No drinks other than water are permitted.       

    *Before leaving class, clean up your work area.
