Entering and Leaving the Classroom

  • Students are expected to STAY IN THEIR SEAT at all times.

  • Sharpen pencils before class begins.

It is very disruptive to get up during instruction to throw away trash

or sharpen pencils. These behaviors will be recorded on PBS.

The one thing

  • If all you do is SHOW RESPECT, you will meet every expectation I have in this classroom.


  • Respect for yourself through your words and actions. They can never be taken back and are a reflection of WHO YOU ARE.

  • Respect for your classmates. Treat them as you want to be treated.

  • Respect for resources. This is the building, equipment, supplies, etc.

  • Respect for teachers and authority. We are here for a reason and it’s not to make your life miserable. It’s to help you reach your goals and potential.

Running a tight ship: to run a ship or an organization in an orderly and disciplined manner.

What are the parts of this classroom that will make it work properly?
