     Mrs. Lightfoot's Classroom Expectations

     I will be RESPECTFUL

    •          I will show respect and consideration to my peers and the adults of this school.  

    •          I will address my peers and the adults of this school with appropriate language and tone. 

    •          I will practice and adhere to the discipline plan of this school. (Located in the school handbook.)

    I will be RESPONSIBLE

    •          I will bring my notebook, pencil, and a pen to class every day as well as any other supplies stated for the day.  

    •          If I am absent, it is my responsibility to arrange to make up missing work.

    •          I know Mrs. Lightfoot is available before and after school if I need extra help.

    •          I will complete and turn in assignments on time.

     I will be READY

    •          I will have my books and supplies binder at my seat before the tardy bell rings.

    •          I will write down the Homework Assignment at the beginning of class every day. 

    •          I will learn and follow this daily routine.





    Missed work: 

    • If I am absent I have the opportunity to make up class work. 
    • I have the same number of days to make up my work that is equal to the number of days I missed school. 
    • If I miss a day that an assignment was due and I was in attendance when the work was assigned I am expected to turn in the work upon my return to class. 
    • If I miss a day when a test was given I must make up the test upon my return to school.
    • If I was absent from the class, but was present for any part of that day I am responsible for turning in any assignment due that day and I do not fall under the guidelines as “absent”. 

    Late work: 

    • I am expected to turn in all work when it is due.


    • If I earn a 69% or below on a test I may ask the teacher to take a retest. 
    • I must attempt a retest no later than three days after the test is returned to me. 

    Plagiarism and/or Cheating: 

    • Plagiarism is using someone else’s ideas or words as your own without giving proper credit. This is not tolerated.
    • If I am found plagiarizing I will earn a ZERO on the assignment and I may face disciplinary action based on Milroy’s Student/Parent Handbook.
