The Five Essential Expectations

Come to class on time, prepared, and ready to work.

Have all necessary materials. Be in your seat and ready to work when the bell rings. Be responsible for having all work completed.

Make appropriate decisions.

Respect yourself, others, the school and your community. Think before you act — then act and don't react! Be responsible and accept the consequences of all your actions — both good and bad. Have a positive mental attitude.

Encourage, support and honor your classmates.

Bring enthusiasm of learning to your classes. Know you get out of life what you put into it — so make it good.

Be an active learner.

Be prepared and participate every day. Ask for and seek a higher level of thinking and relevance — don't accept mediocrity. Learn to love learning — knowing it is a life-long skill.

Look to the future — ask yourself.

Do I have a plan for my life? Am I ready for the 21st century? Remember - no one can take your education away from you!
