Mr. Wydner's Classroom Rules & Procedures
The classroom rules and procedures that are outlined below explain how I expect you to conduct yourself in class this school year. By following these rules and procedures, you will help make our classroom an efficient, productive, and positive learning environment for everyone. The goal is to make our classroom a space in which you all have the greatest possible opportunity to learn and grow.
1. Always do your best.
2. Create original products.
3. Treat everyone with respect.
4. Seek and give help when needed.
5. Listen actively.
1. Bring all necessary materials to class including: textbooks, pencil/pen, paper, social studies notebook, social studies folder, colored pencils, and homework.
2. Be in your seat and ready to begin class when the bell rings.
3. Raise your hand to speak or leave your seat, unless the teacher gives other instructions.
4. Turn in homework and in-class work when and where indicated by the teacher.
5. Head all of your homework in the upper right-hand corner of your paper. Your heading should include your first and last name and the date written out in full.
6. Use computers for class related work only.
7. Throw away all trash before or after class.
8. When absent, ask your classmates about assignments and check the assignment board before consulting the teacher. The teacher will be happy to help you if your classmates cannot answer your questions.
9. When the dismissal bell rings, remain seated until the teacher dismisses you.
10. Before leaving class, clean up your work area.
Grading For All Classes
Each graded assignment will have a point total. Every graded assignment will include the number of possible points earned. At the end of the marking period, points will be totaled, each student's amount will be converted to a percentage, and a letter grade will be assigned based on the Board of Education's guidelines.
Students are able (and encouraged) to track their grade on Powerschool grade portal site located on the school's home webpage.
