MATERIALS REQUIRED: We will not use a book for this course; however I would like you to purchase a folder for this class. I also would like you to bring a pen/pencil to class every day. You will also be required to bring your iPad to class daily. The majority of your assignments and activities will be available on your iPad.

HOMEWORK: The majority of your assignments will be done during class time; therefore you will rarely have homework.

  • Respect the teacher the classroom and other students
  • Be responsible for your own learning
  • Personal electronics (Ipad, cell phone, etc) for EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY!!

I will also follow the 2016-2017 Greencastle School District Student Cell Phone Policy.  Upon entering Greencastle school building, you are expected to turn your cell phone off and place them out of sight. During school hours, cell phones must be kept in  your cubical/locker at all times and should never be used. Any cell phone seen, heard, or used during the school day will be confiscated by an adult, turned into building administration and returned only to a parent/guardian. Students in violation of the cell phone policy will also be subject to serving a Wednesday School detention.


Strike 1=Warning, Strike 2=Write Up and Parent Notification, Strike 3=Student sent to office. Any major discipline issues will be referred directly to Ms.Christopher.

REMEMBER: You determine YOUR GRADE! Please treat everyone with respect. I hope you enjoy the class. 

 “Respect is learned, earned, and returned.” Anonymous
