You will come to class prepared, on time, and ready to learn.

  • You will respect yourself and others (even those who are not present in the room) in both speech and action.
  • You will use personal electronics in class ONLY when instructed to do so.
  • You will recognize your own strengths and weaknesses, and work to become a better person all around.
  • You will contribute to the class community in a constructive way.
  • You will accept failures as a way to start over with more knowledge.
  • You will understand that a hall pass is a contract of trust between you and your teacher, and not abuse that trust.
  • You will ask questions/seek extra help when you need it, and do your best to assist others in need of help.
  • You will take care of yourself physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually when outside of school.
  • You will follow all rules and regulations published in the CHS Code of Conduct, and accept the consequences if you do not.

*** If you have trouble meeting one or more of these expectations, I will “invite” you to have a conference with me to discuss the situation and develop a plan for improvement.  If the problem(s) persist, other school faculty and/or your parent/guardian will also be notified.
