All Wendell Middle Schools expectations for behavior and the team rules apply in this CC8 class. All students should come to class ready to work with the correct materials and a good attitude. Due to the volume of material that we will be covering this year is it critical that every student keeps up with every assignment and due date. All students will be required to keep a binder with notes and homework from this year. We will be working on organizational skills to help keep all materials together.
In the 8th grade we have high standards of accountability for our students, they must take ownership of their own learning. With this being said I am here to help you grow and learn so reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns at anytime. I love questions big and small, if you are wondering about something you are probably not the only one, so please ask.
This things I promise you!
We will try to connect everything to everyday life or the real world
We will all use correct math vocabulary
All questions and concerns will be validated and addressed
