    ALL STUDENTS are expected to be on time and prepared for class each day - this means you must be prompt and have your class materials ready when you take your seat - and remember to get proper rest and nutrition: you are required to be alert, focused, and ready for the challenges the curriculum demands of you -  it's perfect preparation for your job or career after high school, and there are no exceptions!
     
    A Please Do Now (PDN) writing assignment will be ready for you when you arrive; your job is to write it, think about it, and respond to it, following the written directions provided. These daily "journals" are numbered and tracked, and are a large part of your grade in this class.
     
    Classroom rules for conduct include ALL the district-mandated rules and regulations (dress code, electronic devices, etc.)  - EVERYONE is expected to know, understand, and follow these rules - ignorance is not an excuse - and consequences for violations are immediate and severe.
       
    Little Arrow Attendance/Participation grades are calculated every Friday (25% of grade). 
    Little Arrow Tests/Quizzes/Projects are 25% of final grade.
    Little Arrow Quarter Exams are 25% of final grade.
    Little ArrowThe Final Exam constitutes the remaining 25% of your final grade for the course.
     
    Being habitually late to class will most certainly make your life more difficult this year - you will be written up each and every time you are tardy, even by a few minutes, and the consequences will be most uncomfortable and inconvenient for you.
     
    Arriving to class uprepared to work will also be expensive - you will lose your participation points each day that you choose to come to class late and/or without your required materials. Once these valuable points are gone, there is no way to replace them.
     
    Lavatory breaks will be limited and controlled, as well - do not plan to use the lavatory every class period, as it is a disruption to the class as a whole and a distraction from what you should be focused upon. All breaks will be recorded and tracked to document the whereabouts of all students, all of the time.
