Attendance and Conduct
All Tuscaloosa County Board policies, Collins-Riverside policies and Mrs. Harbin’s classroom rules will be followed. Attendance is crucial for success in middle school. Please try to schedule appointments after school if possible, limit “checking out” of school, and schedule vacations during the times students are out of school.
The final grade for each 9 week period will be based on tests, quizzes, homework, classwork and projects. A 9 weeks exam will be given at the end of each 9 weeks and will count 10% of the final grade. The final course grade will be determined by averaging the final grades from all 4 nine week periods.
All students will need to bring the required materials to class every day. Students will need a 3 ring binder, dividers, notebook paper, pencils and a basic 4 function calculator. Any supplies such as Kleenex, paper towels, markers and colored pencils would be greatly appreciated!!
Students are to report to class each day on time with the proper materials, prepared to participate in class activities. Consequences will be given for excessive tardies, being unprepared for class and improper behavior as specified in the Tuscaloosa County code of Conduct and the CRMS handbook. There will be no eating, drinking or chewing gum in the classroom. Students are not allowed to use their cell phones or other electronic devices during class unless approved by the teacher. It is not the responsibility of the teacher or administration if these items are damaged or stolen during school hours. Violation of these rules will result in verbal warnings, parent phone calls, or being written up in the class discipline log. After three classroom write ups in the discipline log, an office referral will be written and sent to the assistant principal.
