Welcome to 7th Grade Math on Team Princeton…Go Tigers!  I look forward to a productive and wonderful school year with you.  I have very high expectations for each and every one of you.  And so, in order to ensure a successful school year, it is important that you understand the following academic (classroom) and behavioral expectations. 

 A.   Academic/Classroom Expectations

    1. Be to class on time and be ready to begin working.
    2. Raise your hand and not your voice.
    3. Come to class prepared by bringing your supplies and assignments that are due.
    4. ONLY Math work is to be done during class time.
    5. Please ask permission to leave your seat.
    6. You must sign out/in to use the restroom or get a drink.

 B.  Behavioral Expectations

    1. ALWAYS be polite and respectful to EVERY adult in the building.
    2. Respect the feelings and rights of your peers.
    3. Do not enter a classroom if a teacher is not present.
    4. You may not use the restroom in between classes.  You must always sign out.

   C.  Consequences

If you fail to meet Academic or Behavioral expectations one or more of the following my result

1.      Lunch detention
