• Class Expectations
                                                                        "It is better to hang out with people better than you.
                                                                        Pick out associates whose behavior is better than
                                                                        yours and you'll drift in that direction."

    In order that learning can take place, there are certain expectations for our ELA classroom. We must all work together to be sure that the rules and procedures are followed, so that everyone will feel safe and successful. There is one rule for the classroom:
    Respect everyone and everything.
    This rule impacts everything we do. When you enter the room, get a tissue, or sharpen a pencil, you need to do it in a way and at a time when it is respectful to the others in the classroom. When you want to contribute to the conversation, you need to do it in a way and at a time when it is respectful to others. Most of the time, respect is about thinking about others first. But respect also reflects back to you. Some choices you make show respect for yourself. Doing your homework, for example, shows that you want to succeed and that shows you respect yourself. 
    You will be expected to make good, safe choices. You are expected to be courteous to all classmates, teachers, staff, substitutes and any other person you may encounter. There will be consequences for poor choices.
