Classroom Expectations

These are Classroom Expectations for the classes Astronomy and Physical Science: Physics at Millard West High School. They are also posted in 3 places in the rooms I teach in. I adapted this list from Mrs. Holowicki's Classroom Expectations.

Expectations, rules, procedures and consequences of my classroom are intended to keep the classroom environment safe, orderly, and productive.  Please respect the rules so that we can maximize learning time together.  The rules are not hard to follow, nor are any of them “out of the ordinary.”  They are simply expected behaviors for high school students in this classroom.  If you have any questions about any of these rules, or why they are in place, you have the right to find out – please ask me as soon as possible.  There should never be a rule that does not have a purpose!  Thank you for your cooperation! 


      1. Respect yoursef, the teacher and others
      2. Put forth your best effort at all times
      3. Be prepared for class each day
      4. Follow instructions when given
      5. Pay attention, participate and ask questions
      6. Preserve a positive learning environment
      7. Take responsibility for your actions


    1. Electronic Devices must be used for academic purposes only
    2. No food or drink, except water
    3. Arrive to class on time and ready to learn
    4. Never line up at the door before dismissal
    5. Do not cheat, plagiarize, or copy work
    6. Use polite and appropriate language
    7. Do your best work & have it ready on time per the Calendar in Infinite Campus


These are not daily consequences. If a student does something that requires a consequence, they are cummulitave.

1.      Verbal warning

2.      Contact home

3.      Referral to principal

* Serious offenses can, at the teacher’s discretion, result in more severe consequences regardless of previous steps taken.  Any infraction of the rules may affect your learning readiness grade.  It can also be cause for further action at the teacher’s discretion.
