Language Arts: Students will need two notebooks. They can be spiral or composition books, paper and pencils for class.

Classroom Expectations:
*Please be respectful of other students, the teachers and yourself. Remember to treat others the way you want to be treated.
*Be courteous! Please don't talk while the teacher or another student is talking. Wait your turn to speak and make sure to raise your hand.
*Remain on task and complete assignments on time. Always do your best!
*Come prepared for class. **Students must bring a pencil or pen to class daily.**

Students will be given verbal reminders. If behavior continues, a written reminder will be sent home to parents. If the behavior continues, the parent will be called. After the call, if the student continues the behavior, they will serve a detention with me after school. **I also reserve the right to go directly to a detention for bullying or other unsafe behavior.

Homework Policy:
Language Arts: Students are expected to read daily. They will be expected to complete a weekly reading log with a total of 2 hours of logged time. The only other homework will be studying for their spelling or vocabulary quizzes. If students do not finish classwork because of off task behavior, they will be expected to complete the assignment at home.

In class work is worth 100 points and weighted once in the grade book. Large writing projects, CDAs and tests/quizzes are worth 100 points and weighted twice in the grade book.

Make up policy:
Students may make up any work missed within the quarter for full credit. Students may also redo any tests or quizzes that receive low scores.
