    Texas History
     
    I look forward to getting to know each of you!  I want you to be successful, to learn, and to enjoy Texas History.  Every student deserves the best learning environment. To achieve these goals, there are a few rules that will help all of us have a positive, interactive, and engaging learning experience. 
     
    CLASSROOM PROCEDURES AND EXPECTATIONS 
     
    *Enter the classroom in an appropriate manner, be seated, and be ready to begin classroom activities.
    *Bring materials, binder, and a pen/pencil to class EVERY DAY.
    *Respect the rights, the opinions and the property of your classmates.
    *Bring a positive attitude with you!
    *Be responsible for your choices and for your actions.
    *Do your best.  Work hard.  This is your job!
     
    GRADES 
     
    Daily Work/Quizzes   50%           Tests   50% 
     
    TARDIES 
     
    You are considered tardy if you are not in the classroom when the tardy bell rings.  Three tardies equals one absence.  
     
    LATE/MISSING WORK/ABSENCES 
     
    If you do not turn in an assignment when it is due, you have ONE day to get the assignment to me. The highest score you can earn on a late assignment is a 70.  After one day, you will receive a zero on the late assignment.  
     
    ***LATE WORK FOR PRE-AP STUDENTS IS NOT ACCEPTED*** 
     
    If you have an excused absence, you are allowed the same number of days to make up the work as the number of days you were absent.  
     
    TUTORING AND PARENT CONTACT
     
    My conference period is from 12:45-1:35.  I am available for tutoring immediately following school on Monday through Thursday.  I am happy to make early morning arrangements with advance notice.  The best way to get in touch with any concerns or any questions is at kbonner@peaster.net  Please type your student's name on the email subject line.
     
    Thank you,
