  • A notebook is required for class notes and homework. Every time you come to class you are to label the top of your notebook page with the date, page number, and the topic in discussion.
  • Homework should include complete name, subject, date and textbook page.
  • If you lose your notebook, replace it as soon as possible and notify your teacher immediately.
  • Homework has to be done on separate sheets of paper.
  • Classwork or Homework done in a different notebook will NOT be accepted.
  • Homework will be assigned regularly.
  • Homework will be checked at the beginning of the class period; I will either sign it or stamp it.
  • According to school’s policy, any assignment not turned in because of excused absences should be made up and presented to the teacher. You are responsible to turn in your work to me when absent, at the most two days after the absence.
  • The notebook will be checked two times each partial: before midterms and before partial tests. No homework or classwork without my signature or stamp on it will be included in the grading.
