     BE INVOLVED

    Participation is being active and engaged in the classroom. The more you participate the more impact you will have in your learning. I expect each student to eagerly volunteer and interact with lessons via seatwork, board work, bell work, or question and answering session as well as ANY other means of learning.

    LATE WORK

    Try your hardest to complete and turn in assignments on the original due date! Late work will be graded as (-10) points per day late.

    MAKE UP POLICY

    If for an uncontrollable reason you are out and need to make-up an assignment, according to the Marion County Student Handbook, you will be given one day for each day you are out to turn in or make up any assignment. For example: If you are out 2-days, upon returning you will have 2 days to complete and turn in missed assignment before receiving a zero (0) as final grade.

    Assignment re-do or corrections will be addressed during ALPHA Time. APHFA time for Mrs. Williams is the first half of lunchtime. You must submit an ALPHA request date and time prior to re-doing or correcting assignments.
