Entering English Class

Stand up
Keep quiet
Put all you need for English on your desk
Sit down when asked to
One of you write the date on the board

Politeness & Respect

– Say hello when you come in class and good bye when you go out. This is just being POLITE and not being a teacher’s pet ;

– Respect everyone & respect their belongings (including the school’s equipment) ;

– Don’t make fun of people,

– Don’t bully others,

– Don’t talk when somebody else is talking…

– Raise your hands before talking

– Ask for permission before going out.

– Keep the room clean

– Push your seats under the desk before  leaving

Attendance & late Arrivals

You are expected to be in class on time every day.
As mentioned in the school rules : you are given a 5 minute passing period. If you are less than 5 min late, you need to get a tardy pass at the vie scolaire, if it is more than 5 min, go to the study room.
If you are absent, you are responsible for making up the work missed. It will be written in pronotes. You just need to login online.

To bring or not to Bring

Bring

Pen,
Paper,
Binder / Notebook,
English Book

Never bring

Food incl. gums, candies…
Cellphones (or turn them off)

Missed Assignment

Assignments need to be submitted on time.
For each day an assignment is late, 2 points will be deducted. And a very good excuse should be given. After 3 days, the assignment will be graded 0/20.
After 3 days, you can still submit your work but for feedback purposes only.

For all sorts of issues

Any kind of problems (including lack of work) will end with some sort of consequence & luckily I have both imagination & creativity eg:

Calling / Meeting the parents (and/or)
Extra homework (and/or)
Report to the class teacher and the principal (and/or)
Detention hours with extra work
and I don’t even mention the many other ideas I have…
