    Performance and Behavior Expectations

    1. Be Kind!!  We are a classroom community and we operate as aeam.  We value each other’s strengths, and we learn from the mistakes we make.
    2. Come to class prepared!! Every day, students should have their math workbook,  notebook, completed HOMEWORK, calculator, ruler, and at least 2 sharpened pencils with erasers.
    3. A small amount of math homework is assigned nightly. This is necessary to provide practice of the skills learned in class that day.  Please take time to complete homework assignments, and be prepared with any questions for homework review the following day.  If you do not do your homework, you will not be able to keep up with the rest of the class.
    4. Be flexible. Be kind.  You will be working with partners and in small groups. 

    Your mission is to become a COOPERATIVE CLASSROOM CITIZEN!



    • If you are absent for any reason, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to complete any work that you missed, in a timely fashion.
    • If you do not come to class on time, you will be marked late for class.

    ** Please do not disrupt the classroom; enter the classroom quietly, and start working as quickly as possible.
