Mr. Mitchell’s 3 R’s
  • Respect-Show at all times to yourself and others
  • Responsibility-Make the right choices and be ready to accept the consequences whether positive or negative
  • Reach-Keep your sights aimed high and if remember that you have to struggle a little before you grow!
Late/Make-Up Work

If a student turns in an assignment after the class period that it is due, 10 points will be subtracted for each day it is late. After the third day the highest a student can make on the assignment is a 70. After report cards have been printed, make up work will not be accepted. If a student is absent, they have five days to receive full credit for their work, after that, the above policy is in effect for late work.

  • We will be using Hotchalk.com in class as our virtual classroom. Each student will create an account and will be responsible for submitting projects using Hotchalk throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to join their students’ accounts by the tab located inside their student’s account.
