Policies and Procedures

Minimize

This course is designed to build reading and writing skills. All students will be expected to complete classwork in an organized and timely manner, with a pacing that allows all students to seek assistance from both their peers and me. 

All students will need the following supplies:

  • Blue or black pens
  • Red pens
  • Notebook paper
  • Binder or folder (can be shared with other classes)
  • Spiral notebook or journal
  • A novel for independent reading (for the first few weeks, this will be your summer reading book)

 

Make-up Work:

If you are absent, it is your responsibility to get missed work.  If you are absent the day a major project or essay is due, you must turn in the project or essay the day you return.  You will not be reminded.  You will have one week to make up tests or quizzes you miss, or you will receive a grade of zero.  In cases of an extended or long-term absence, special arrangements will be made.  If the student’s absence is excused for a school activity for which he has advance notice, he should be prepared for class with completed assignments when he returns. Extracurricular activities are not excuses for putting off making up work or assignments.


Departmental make-ups are on Thursdays after school.  

 

My tutorials are Thursdays after school and by appointment. Should you need to schedule a time earlier before school or later after school, please let me know at least two days in advance so I can make arrangements to be here.

 

Late Work:

Work is due at the assigned collection time. No late homework or daily class work will be accepted unless you have been absent. Major assignments will be penalized 15 points per calendar day if turned in late, unless extenuating circumstances are approved by the teacher. (If your paper is due on Monday and you turn it in on Tuesday, it is -15 even though you did not attend that class on that day. If you turn your paper in on Wednesday, it is a -30). Overall, do not turn in papers late! Also, truant students will automatically receive zeroes for any work due or completed the class period the truancy occurred.  

Remind 101

Minimize

Remind 101 is used to help students keep on top of assignments. This is a free service for students and parents to receive one-way text messages from the classroom teacher. I will use Remind to send notices of upcoming assignments, tests and projects. It is highly recommended for both students and parents to keep up with our curriculum.

To sign up, text the number 81010 with the message @WOLFpreap for Pre-AP/GT courses or @WOLFgl for Grade Level courses.
