You will sit at your assigned table, eat quietly, clean-up, and take your plate to the garbage when you are finished.

Progress reports will be sent at mid-nine weeks and report cards will be sent at the end of the nine weeks.  You are required to have both reports signed and returned to school promptly.


If you are absent, you need to make up the work you missed.  It is YOUR responsibility to ask the teacher for make-up work.
