    My class rule: RESPECT

  • 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.
