Outstanding = zero violations during the six week grading period; Satisfactory = 1-3 conduct violations; Needs Improvement = 4-5 conduct violations; Unsatisfactory  = 6 or more conduct violations

Conduct Violations: Tardiness to class, out of seat when attendance is taken, talking during inappropriate periods, not following directions, horseplay/not following safety procedures after a warning.

Abstinence Forms

Please remember to return the student abstinence forms to Mrs. Rowell as soon as possible.  They came home in your summer mailing packet.  I will send home additional forms with all students whose forms I did not receive during the first few weeks of class.  It is important to have the form for participation in our abstinence curriculum. Thank you!
