    1. Respect -- Every student will respect all members of the class.
    2. Be on Time --  Every student must be in the room when the bell rings.  If any student is not, they will be assigned a 15 minute detention after school.  If they miss that detention, the detention will now be increased to a 1/2 hr.  If the detention is still not fulfilled, I will then call home.  If the detention is till not fulfilled, the administarion will now become invovled. 
    3. Pay Attention -- All students will be responsible for all information.  There will be no relaxing or sleeping allowed in my class and detentions will be assigned as a result. 
    4. Do ALL WORK!!! --  Homework will be a very important feature of my classes.  If you do not do homework you will not pass!  I do take late work (1 day only) but a reduced grade will result.   I do not accept major projects or essays late!!!!!!  No EXCUSES!!!
    5. Have Fun! -- The school year is long and it will seem even longer if we do not have fun.  We will have fun, but we will be doing a lot of work!
