Do Not Hit Too Many Foul Balls!
If a student is absent for any reason, it is the student's responsibility to come to my room before school on the day of his/her return to get the work that was missed. Even if the work was requested through the office, come to my room anyway to check if additional work was assigned.
In other words.....It is so very important to come to school whenever possible! Eighth graders have many responsibilities.
Too, eighth graders are expected to behave as young adults. It is certainly a foul ball when behavior is not acceptable. An eighth graders needs to learn to hit it out of the park with desired behavior.
