  • I advise students at the beginning of the week which days I’m available after school for additional help from 2:15 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Students who stay after school MUST fill out a Study Club “To Do” list – this helps me know what they need to work on and helps them stay accountable

Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium Common Core
  • Beginning in the spring of 2015 students will be required to take the Common Core State Standards assessment.
discipline behavior issues
Discipline/Behavior Issues
  • It is my hope that discipline and behavior issues will not be a major factor. However, in the event it is necessary for me to address certain behaviors, such as a student interfering with another’s learning, Evergreen has a standard management system as follows:
  • first warning is verbal
  • second warning is verbal with redirection
  • third warning is verbal and student is moved to another area of the room
  • If the student continues to be disruptive he/she is sent to a Buddy Classroom where a Plan of Improvement will need to be completed and approved before returning to his/her original classroom. This Plan of Improvement will become a permanent record in the student’s file, and parents will be notified
  • ANY actions that create an unsafe environment, or if behaviors are repetitive, will be referred to an administrator
policies
Policies
  • Food, beverages and gum are not allowed in the classroom.
  • Please be in your seat when the bell rings, as class begins at that time.
  • It is expected that each student will complete all class work and homework.
  • Absences
    • Refer to the class agenda upon return and gather distributed papers, view the Teacher Calendar online, and ask a classmate about assignments.
    • Clarify with teacher.
    • Each excused absence has a one-day grace period.
