    Da Vinci (Encore) Classroom Rules

     

    BE ON TIME…

    • It shows respect and responsibility!

     

    STAY IN ASSIGNED SEATS…

    • So you can be counted.
    • So you don’t distract others or yourself from work.
    • So you don’t get blamed for a mess by someone else at your assigned seat.
    • So I can learn your name.

     

    RESPECT:

    • For each other
    • For the teacher
    • For our materials

     

    STAY ON TASK…

    • Part of your grade is that you are actively engaged in your work.
    • Hard workers do not fail.
    • Chatting is fine, but the work must get done.
    • Keep your volume low.

     

    FOLLOW DIRECTIONS…

    • For safety, good grades, and so that our materials last a long time.

     

    CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF…

    • I am not your mother, nor your maid, and neither are your classmates.

     

    COMPLETE YOUR WORK…

    • A big part of your grade is project work, incomplete projects can make you fail.
    • If you need more time, ask to borrow materials.
    • Projects must be in before the close of the grades. After that, it’s a zero.
    • If you have been absent YOU need to find out what you missed.

     

    STAY CREATIVE:

    • Be as original as you can, don’t copy other work or samples.
    • Do you own work, but it’s okay to ask for a little help.
