Mr. Timothy Kelly
About Me: (coming soon)
The expectations, rules, procedures and consequences of this classroom are intended to keep the classroom environment safe, orderly, and productive. Please respect the rules so that we can maximize learning time together. The rules are not hard to follow, nor are any of them “out of the ordinary.” They are simply expected behaviors for high school students in this classroom. If you have any questions about any of these rules, or why they are in place, you have the right to find out – please ask me as soon as possible. There should never be a rule that does not have a purpose!
Thank you for your cooperation!
- BE on time: when the bell rings, be in the classroom and in your assigned seat (otherwise you are “Tardy”)
- BE prepared: Chromebook charged, notebook/paper, writing instrument
- No food or drink (this is for lab safety and possible allergies. Water is acceptable in a container with a closable lid; If a spill occurs, inform the teacher and please clean it up immediately.)
- Cellphones & earbuds away (you will be informed when you are permitted to use your phone), repeated disregard will result in referral to Vice-Principal
- Turn in all assignments on time (remember that the work that you turn-in reflects your effort on the assignment.)
- Daily assignments are due at the end of the period
- Homework assignments are due the next class day, unless otherwise specified.
- Assignments turned in late will not receive full credit
- Absences If you are absent, it is your responsibility to get any missed notes and assignments.
- If you are out on quarantine, our video link will be posted in Google Classroom and in TEAMS.
- Do not cheat, plagiarize, or copy work
- Cheating is unacceptable. If you are found cheating on any assignment, you will receive a zero and the incident will be reported your assistant principal and parents.
- Plagiarism (copying work from another source without giving proper credit) is unacceptable. If you plagiarize on any assignment you will earn a “0” on that assignment with no opportunity to re-do the work for credit.
- Use polite and appropriate language; be respectful of your fellow classmates. (Offensive, derogatory, and profane terms are not acceptable in the school environment)
- Participate! (Be part of the class: if you have something to contribute please do so; raise your hand; If you have a question, ASK! Otherwise, I might not know until the test that you did not understand something. There are no stupid questions, and chances are, if you are wondering about it, someone else in the class is too. Be proactive about your learning and don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you feel most comfortable waiting until after class, that is okay, too.)
