3. Have a place for everything and have everything in it's place, including yourself.


Classroom Contract  

Classroom Contract

 

1.   Discipline yourself so I don’t have to.

- All students are responsible for their work.

- Students are expected to act like young adults and work on their art projects in their areas. They should not be up walking around and talking across the room. These behaviors disrupt the learning and creative process of others.

- The room should be kept clean. Students are expected to clean up their areas, all materials, and help others with clean up. Clean up is a must.

-Students should not ask to leave the room unless it’s an emergency or they have a written excuse.

 

2.   Give everyone and everything the respect that you expect.

 

- Respect for others, materials, and everything in the room is expected. All artwork must be school appropriate and must not be offensive to anyone.

- No foods or drinks are permitted with the exception of water.

- Only one person may speak at a time during class discussion or instruction.

- Students need to look and listen and follow directions.

 

3.   Have a place for everything and have everything in its place, including yourself.

 - Classroom materials need to be placed back where they belong when students are done with them.

 - No one should open storage areas or get behind my desk unless I give them permission.

 - Lining up at the door and messing with the dry erase board is not permitted.

 

 - Cell phones are not permitted unless they are approved for the use of a lesson or a project which will be most likely never. If they are in use, then they should only be used for the purpose of the lesson or project. Please see the note below concerning phones/devices in class.

 

               

 

Note concerning phones/devices

 

Please no cell phones or devices of any sort. Although I believe technology is and can be beneficial it's been my experience that most students can’t use it responsibly. With social media, it is challenging for the majority of students to refrain from the notifications that pop up on their phones/devices.
If a picture or idea is needed for class, please email it to my school email address (
bpeterman@gcsd.k12.sc.us) at least a day in advance and I will print it for you in color. Do not expect to draw from your phone or copy another work of art from the internet. Nothing creative came from copying another and in this class you are encouraged to be creative.

Parents please go through the office if you are signing your child out. Please do not send a text or call them during class to have them leave early. This is a safety precaution.

Phones/devices must be out of sight and ringers turned off for the duration of class. This includes entering and during the last couple minutes of class. If students can't handle having their phones/devices they can store them with the ringers off in the top drawer of the filing cabinet. If students can’t follow this rule, phones will be confiscated, delivered to the office and students will have to retrieve them there.


Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation with this matter.
