  • Sit in your regular seat. You will choose your seats on the first day, and should there be any problems with behavior, I withhold the right to move you where I deem necessary
  • When you choose your seat, do so in light of any particular needs you may have (e.g.; learning or physical disability)
  • If you should deem it necessary to change seats, let me know and I’ll change the seat for you
  •  Do not write on your desks, do not destroy school property and do not destroy items hanging on the walls
  • Please leave your area clean when you leave class: do not leave wrappers, water bottles or food items near or on your desk
