• Class Information and Expectations

    Mrs. Griffith – Room 136

    I am available before school at 8:00 and most afternoons until 3:30. If at any time you feel that you need extra help or to do make-up work, you may work in the classroom before or after school. I may be reached by emailing reneegriffith@mooreschools.com

     

    GRADES:

    Grades will be calculated based on daily assignments (assignments and projects), test/quizzes, and semester test.

    It is imperative that students understand their ID # will be their password and therefore know that this number should not be shared with anyone. Any student who disregards this warning must realize others could gain access to his/her files, which allows the possibility of manipulation/deletion of the student’s work. It is further understood that cheating (by means of accessing another student’s folder for copying/printing files or any other copying whether by computer or paper) will not be tolerated and all students involved will receive a zero on such an incident. Students are expected to do their own work at all times.

    LATE WORK AND MAKE UP WORK:

    Late work – will NOT be accepted.

    Make-up work – If absent from class, it is the student’s responsibility to obtain all missed assignments as well as plan to make up any tests or quizzes. District policy will be followed for acceptance of make-up work – see student handbook for details!

    MATERIALS NEEDED:

    Student ID

    Agenda

    Ream of paper 8.5x11, 20 weight, all-purpose copy paper

    Pen or pencil

    1 box Kleenex

    CLASS REQUIREMENTS:

    Moore Public Schools Internet-Electronic Network Acceptable Usage Policy will apply at all times. (Board Policy 2260 – see student handbook).

    Students will be expected to take care of all computer equipment. Students will use computers appropriately at all times. This includes the use of both the hardware and the software. Students should not at any time attempt entry to system files or any files that are not being used by the class. Students should not “explore” files or make any changes to system settings. This includes but is not limited to screen savers, icons, installing VPNs,  and program settings.

    Cell phones – Possession and use of a cell phone must fall within these guidelines:

    1. Must be on silent at all times during the class period.
    2. Should be used as a tool for learning and not disrupt the learning environment. NO TEXTING OR PHONE CALLS at any time during the class period.
    3. Teacher has the authority to allow or ban cell phone use during class period.

    Any student who chooses to misuse or disregard district and classroom policies and fails to follow appropriate classroom procedures will be dealt with immediately. Parents will be notified and disciplinary action will be taken which may include detention, in-school suspension, out-of-school suspension, revocation of network and computer access privileges, and/or removal from the computer class.

    REMINDERS:

    • You are responsible for all material in your student handbook. The student handbook is accessible on the Westmoore home page.
    • Use of cell phones is a privilege not a right. Use your cell phone responsibly.
    • Student ID’s must be worn properly. NO ID, NO COMPUTER! That means it must be around your neck!

    • Be to class on time!
    • There is absolutely no food or candy allowed in the classroom. Bottled water allowed – only at your desk, not at your computer!
