Signed by every student at the commencement of the school year.

Running or wrestling in the hallways or classrooms is forbidden.
Students must have permission from the subject teacher to use their cell-phone, or i-pad, and only for class assignments.

Before using your cell-phone or i-pad for research in class, you must be given permission by the subject teacher.

Your desk, books, and classroom must be neat and clean.
Keep a complete record of class and homework assignments neatly in your agenda and have your parent sign it each week.
