Mr. Gresham's Class Rules:
1. Come to class prepared and ready to learn
2. Respect all adults, visitors, classmates, materials, and yourself.
3. Give each assignment your best effort.
4. Raise your hand for permission to speak / leave the room.
5. Make it a GREAT day in sixth grade :)
It is expected that all students follow all rules set forth by Brewer Middle School's administration and their sixth grade teachers. In my class, my behavior policy is simple, follow directions, listen, and participate and you will have a great day! However, if there are infractions with these expectations in behavior, students will be stepped on the discipline ladder.
DISCIPLINE LADDER STEPS
1st Step = Warning
2nd Step = Parent Contact / Phone Conference
3rd Step = Lunch Detention / Parent Contact

BULLYING / ZERO TOLERANCE
I WILL NOT tolerate any student bullying another student. Any indication of bullying in any way (online, face to face, intimidation, physical altercations, etc.) will immediately result in removal from class and receiving of an administrative referral / guidance referral.
Parent Portal - Parents, please make sure that you sign up for Parent Portal. Parent Portal is the real-time, up-to-date, version of your child's grades in ALL their classes. If you notice any problems or have any questions, please contact me as soon as possible to set up a conference.
Homework - Homework will be assigned at certain times throughout the year. Homework is expected to be completed and returned the next day, unless otherwise stated.
Extra Credit - very rarely will I give extra credit in class, however, sometimes, I will give extra credit. Extra credit can be used at any time throughout the year.
Test Retakes - students will be allowed to retake any assessment (test) that they make a 59 or below on. However, this responsibility falls on the student and they must set up when they want to take the test (generally during their lunch period).
