Ms. Quinnelly's Class Rules, Policies, & Grading System
1- Respect other people and their property, opinions, and beliefs.
(That means: No name calling, no taking or messing with other people’s things without permission, and no ridiculing people when they speak in class.)
2- When Ms. Quinnelly talks, students do not.
3- Students may write in pencil or in blue or black ink only.
4- Students may not turn in papers with “shreddy bits.” Remove them always.
5- Absolutely NO BACKPACKS are allowed in the classroom
6- Students may have a bottle of water in class. No gum, food, or soft drinks are allowed.
(There are exceptions to the food and drink rule, such as class projects that incorporate food or soft drink and special events when pre-approved by Ms. Quinnelly.)
7- Students may use any supplies in Ms. Quinnelly’s cabinet, but all supplies must be put away and stored neatly when students have finished with them.
8- Students should use the restroom and get a drink BEFORE they come to class. Class time is class time, and we will not be roaming the halls in search of the restroom or water fountain.
9- Students may NOT have backpacks at their desks. Get books and supplies needed for class and store backpacks in lockers. If lockers will not hold your backpack, Ms. Quinnelly will designate a place for them to be stashed in the classroom.
10- What’s on Ms. Quinnelly’s desk is Ms. Quinnelly’s, not students’. Ask before you borrow.
11- Staplers, pencil sharpeners, tape, extra pencils, make-up worksheets, etc. are located on the computer table for student use. Do not use the ones on Ms. Quinnelly's desk.
12- Homework/classwork/project line policy:
Homework, classwork, and projects are due by the end of the day (3:20 p.m.) on their due date. Homework, classwork, and projects turned in one day late will receive an automatic 50% deduction to the grade. Homework, classwork, and projects turned in after that will receive no credit. Work is due when it is due. This rule will be STRICTLY enforced! ***
13- Due dates will be posted in the classroom, and 8th-grade students will be provided with a calendar on which to keep those dates in their notebooks. High school students will be expected to keep up with due dates on their own. Ms. Quinnelly also will give oral reminders of due dates to help students stay on top of their classwork.
14- Make-up policy:
Students will have one day to turn in work missed due to absence, field trip, athletic events, or other school activities. Students will have one week to schedule a time and make up any quizzes or tests missed due to absence, field trip, athletic events, or other school activities. ***
15- Grading system
Tests – 50%
Quizzes – 25%
Homework/Classwork – 25%
*** For those students who have an IEP, we will be following their IEP to the letter.
