OVERALL EXPECTATIONS Victor Central Schools Code of Conduct applies in all
of my classes+ See Agendas for full rules and expectations
My class rule: RESPECT
DAILY EXPECTATIONS When the bell rings to START class you are in seat,
quiet and ready to begin class When the bell rings to END class you are in seat,
cleaned up, ready to tuck chairs in and leave Lateness must be excused and repeated will result in
contact home Absences
+ Must be excused and legitimate+ Attendance lists are checked daily+ You are responsible for making up class work and
reviewing materials discussed in class+ Students found skipping are given a 0 for weekly grade
DAILY EXPECTATIONS Cell phones can only be used at designated
times as specified by the teacher
When you get to class check the daily agenda to see where your phone should be:
Inability to follow phone expectations will result in a 5-week phone suspension
teacher will collect your phone every class for 5 weeks
WHY NO PHONES?
CLEAN-UP & MAINTENANCE Clean-up own workspace 5-10 minutes prior to the end of the block (when I tell you!!!)
picking up all materials and returning them to their proper locations, i.e. where you got them from
washing tables, chairs, tools, sinks, floor logging off and returning computers (if used) tucking in chairs/stools
Clean-up early = stay extra time to assist in additional clean-up tasks
MAINTENANCE No food or drink is to
be consumed in the art room at any time during the day
If you have food or drink with you when you enter the room you must leave them on the cabinets until the end of class
ALL I ASK IS FOR YOU TO: Keep a positive attitude. Set a goal for yourself and push toward it. If you think that you have failed at a task - look
and learn. You may be surprised at how much we learn from what we perceive as failure.
Time is precious, dont waste it. Know that you are unique and do not judge
yourself on others level of ability because I will not.
Be conscientious and kind to everyone. You do not walk in their shoes.
