1.Be Punctual: Be in class on time! Students are expected to be in class and in their seats when the bell rings. Passing period is not social hour-students have time to get to class and be in their seats, ready to start class. 2. Be Respectful: To everyone and everything in the class! Students need to respect everyone-no bullying! Students need to respect all classroom supplies provided by Mrs. McCubbin! This means no name calling, and no destroying class supplies. Make sure all supplies are returned to their proper place! 3. Be Prepared: Have assignments done on time! Students need to be prepared to start class when the bell rings. All assignments have due dates and will be docked points if turned in late. There will be times when work is too late to turn in for grading-make sure work is turned in on time! Students are given a list of needed supplies-students are responsible for having their class supplies with them each day! 4. Be Cooperative: Work well with others-follow instructions! Students are expected to work together in pairs and in groups-this is not optional! Students are also expected to cooperate with all teacher requests and directives. 5. Complete All Work! Students are expected to complete their work in class. Playing games on the chromebooks or excessive talking are not acceptable. Students are responsible for managing themselves and their time to complete all of their assignments.

Rewards: PURRS Points Raffle Tickets/Treasure Chest Positive Note/Call Home Bathroom Policy: Each student is expected to be in class for the entire time-passing periods can be used for bathroom breaks. However, sometimes passing period isn’t an option. Each student will be issued a bathroom pass with 10 bathroom opportunities for each trimester. Passes will not be replaced if lost, and students will not be allowed to use the bathroom once their pass is filled up-unless in case of ABSOLUTE emergency OR a parent note.
Copy Policy: Copying other classmates’ work is not acceptable. Any work turned in by multiple students that is EXACTLY the same will be given a 0 grade. It is usually nearly impossible to determine whose work is original and whose is copied, therefore any identical works by multiple students will be given 0 grades. Any computer work that has no citations will also be given a 0 grade. Any computer work that has information that has been copy/pasted straight from the internet-even with a citation-will be given a 0 grade. It is important for students to be able to answer correctly in their own words without copying the information from the internet source.
