Welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year. I am excited for this year and have high expectations for us as we grow and learn together.


Class Rules:

1. Follow all directions immediately.
2. Bring required materials every day.
3. Talk only when permitted.
4. Show respect to everyone in the class.
5. Respect school property.


Student Expectations:

Be Respectful: Every student has the right to a safe and secure classroom; you do not have the right to impede or jeopardize that in any way. Be respectful of yourself, your environment, your fellow classmates, and your teacher.

Be Responsible: Recognize your role in building a fun and productive community of learners. Understand there will be consequences, both good and bad, for your actions.

Be a Worker: Do your job! Challenge yourself to be productive. You are here; use your time wisely.

Be cooperative: Time and again you will be asked to do something that you may not like. Be mature; work through it. You may find that "getting there" is half the fun. Our world demands that you work well with others.

Grading Policy:

The following weight values will be applied to all work as part of the educational process:
Test 50%, Quizzes: 30%, Classwork 20%

Communication:

Please contact me if ever you, or your child, have any questions or concerns. The best ways to contact me are to call and leave a message at (570) 348-3631 or send an e-mail at matthew.loughney@scrsd.org. The best time to reach me by phone is during my planning time, 11:45 to 12:15 .
