1. Safety and respect are very important. Safety and respect will be expected from each person in class. Everyone likes to be in an environment where they are safe and respected
Safety – towards self and others
Respect – towards self and others
2. This is a place of business. Your job is to learn. That means you make a reasonable effort to complete assignments on time and to prepare for tests. It also means not to hinder others from learning. Act in such a way that you and others in class can learn effectively.
Learn – complete assignments and study
Foster – help others learn by your actions
3. Timeliness is appreciated. Be on time, hand assignments in on time. This is a part of showing respect and considering this to be a place of business.
Be on time – come before the bell
Be punctual – hand in assignments on time
4. Come prepared. Bring your book, binder, calculator, pens, pencils, paper, and any other supplies you need. You should not have to borrow from someone else. Keep your stuff organized so you can find what you need quickly. You will not be allowed to go to your locker during class.
Be prepared – bring your stuff
Be organized – keep your stuff neat
5. Expect consequences for poor choices. Poor choices such as missing homework, missing supplies, tardiness, or showing a lack of safety or respect will be met with consequences. Be prepared to spend time after class, be given extra work, have parents contacted, chores provided, or have your equipment confiscated.
Make good choices – do what is right
Pay with dignity – don’t whine if caught
6. Privileges are earned, not deserved. If you wish to be allowed food in class (not during labs), let out of the class for a washroom break, or sit in a preferred location, good behaviour is required.
If you want freedom – be responsible
7. Cell phone use in class (texting, phoning, etc.) not permitted. Bring a proper calculator to class; cell phones will be confiscated and consequences administered.
