Homework in Homeroom: In our opinion, completing homework in homeroom is a bad academic habit; it encourages both procrastination and cheating among our students. We discourage students from completing homework here in the morning. However, if a student needs help on a particular assignment, they should make a serious effort to complete it and see the teacher during homeroom.
Backpacks: We encourage all of you to leave your backpacks in your lockers. You should visit your locker to obtain what you need for each class.
Novels: You should have a novel with you at ALL times!
Loitering: Students must move to class instead of hanging out in the hallways.
Cougar Passes: You have 10 for the entire nine weeks, so be selective as to when you exercise your opportunities to be briefly excused from class. If passes remain, you will receive bonus points.
Class Dismissal: Students are to remain seated until they are dismissed by the teacher.
