If you are absent please check blackboard. I will post all homework assignments for the week on Bb each Sunday. Make up any missing homework assignments as soon as you can.
Enter class quietly and hand me your pass.
Start participating ASAP.
I follow the school tardy policy.
Be on time. It is considered incredibly rude to be late in Germany (even if it is just a few minutes)!
I will not allow you to discriminate or make fun of other students based on gender, ethnicity, skin color, sexual orientation, religious or political affiliation, accent or German fluency!
A non compliance will result in an immediate referral to the office.
My classroom is a safe learning environment in which all students can learn.
It is a NO BULLY ZONE!
I will call the attendance office and/or administration if you are skipping my class. I will also communicate your absence with your parents/caregivers.
Late work will be accepted with a point deduction until the chapter test. I will not accept any late work past the chapter test.
It is imperative that you complete your homework and all other assignments on time. Each day we will build on previously learned material but to be successful you have to have a good understanding of the previous material.
All homework assignments will be posted on Blackboard every Monday morning.
If you find yourself stuck do not panic!

All cellphones must be put away unless we are using them for games (kahoot!) or other educational purposes in class.
If you have your phone out and are texting, tweeting etc. you will get a verbal warning
If you take your phone out again, I will have you place it on my desk
If you had your phone on my desk and you decide to take it out again, then I will have you bring it to the office and a parent or guardian will have to come and pick it up.
