HI!!  Welcome to my teacher website!!


Parents and Students:

I am excited to meet everyone and start off this school year on a good note. The most important things in my classroom are to be involved and to stay on top of school work. I have several ways for parents and students to stay connected with our class. First is my teacher website (this website). 

I also have a Twitter account (@LHS_mrsmorris). Please feel free to follow me for tweets about tests, quizzes and upcoming assignments. I also have the ability to record my voice and actions on Twitter for students who have questions after class (all students would benefit from posting the content in question). Lastly, you can sign up for classroom text messages through Remind101. This is a good option for those of you who do not have a Twitter account. I will place the same information on Twitter that goes out on text messages.

I hope this keeps everyone in the education loop for all of my business classes. Please glance at the supply list. I appreciate any and all items that you are able to donate to our classroom. Please feel free to email me with any concerns.

Go Patriots!

The information below is given to students on the first day of class.  Click on 'Supply List' for supplies that are needed. 

  • Enter the room with all supplies BEFORE the bell rings!!!!!!!

  • Sit in assigned seat and be prepared for CNN Student News.

    • Write bellwork and answer question in paragraph format.

  • Read the board for important announcements.

  • Ask permission to leave the room - NO MATTER WHAT! 

 

 MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Pen/Pencil

  • Notebook paper

  • 3-ring binder or folder to keep important learning materials

 

  1. Food and drinks are permitted in my classroom.  BUT they are not allowed near the computer.

  2. Respect other students, yourself, and the teacher.  That means no offensive language, gestures, or website allowed.  

  3. Be honest.  Cheating will not be tolerated!  If you attempt to cheat on any assignment, you and anyone else who assist you will receive a ‘0’ grade.  

  4. Be on time, prepared, and ready to learn each day!

  5. Treat the computer equipment as if it was your personal device.  Anything that you damage will be your responsibility to replace.  

  6. DO NOT CHANGE THE BACKGROUND/SCREENSAVER (or any other setting) on the computer.  Doing so will result in an immediate write up.

 

 

Behavior Consequences:

FIRST OFFENSE - student is given a verbal warning

SECOND OFFENSE - student is given silent lunch

THIRD OFFENSE - student goes to the office or written up

 

  • Students who are absent are responsible for asking the teacher about missed assignments.  Refer to the student handbook for the appropriate amount of time allowed to make up assignments.  

  • To help the student remember to ask about assignments, a ONE will be placed in the gradebook until the student makes up the work.
    • *Grade of 0= student was present in class, but did not turn in the assignment.  Teacher reserves the right to decide on make-up once the make-up deadline has passed.

      *Grade of 1 = student is able to make up assignment.
