#### Behavior Expectations

2)    Be prepared for class.  Students will need their supplies everyday in class.

3)    Be polite.  Treat teachers and classmates like you would want to be treated.  Students should raise their hand and wait to be recognized to speak.  Do not call out answers unless you have been recognized and asked to do so by the teacher.
