Classroom Rules and Policies

  • At Wortham Oaks, we follow the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Students: 

    -Be Proactive
    -Begin With the End in Mind
    -Put First Things First
    -Think Win-Win
    -Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
    -Synergize
    -Sharpen the Saw
     
    One word can truly sum up all the expectations in my classroom: RESPECT!
    Students should be respectful of themselves, other students, teachers and school property. We will discuss as a class what it looks like to be respectful in all these ways! 
     
    Some other important information: 
    *If students get below a 70% on an assignment, they will be given an opportunity to fix/redo the assignment for up to a 70%.
    *Grades will be posted weekly online. Please check Parent Self-Serve to track your child's academic progress. 
    *Communication is key! Please check Class Dojo frequently to stay informed on events and important classroom information.
    *More specific grading policies and procedures may be found in the 2022-2023 Student Handbook
