  • The Golden Rule is my motto do unto others as

    wait until you are acknowledged and then share.
  • When doing class work, work quietly and mindful
    of others.
  • Take care of classroom materials.

BE Organized.

    be seated before the tardy bell rings.
  • If there is an assignment on the board or
    overhead, begin before being told to do so.
  • Use your planner.
  • Bring all materials to class for each day. If
    you need to borrow a pen or paper, do so before
    class begins.

  • Know where your materials are.
  • Know what you need to do.
  • Present your work legible and neatly.

Sharpening Pencils
  • If you need to sharpen your pencil, hold up your
  • If I nod or say yes, go to the sharpener.
  • At the sharpener, even though it is tempting, do
    not talk.
  • Quickly quietly go back to your seat.

  • Do your best in everything.
  • Try your hardest.
  • Aim for success.
  • Get involved and ask questions
  • Accept others as they are. Nobody is perfect.

  • Do all your class work and turn it in on time.
  • If you are absent, be sure to check the extra
    copies folder, learn what you missed, and
    complete any assignments by the timeline given.
  • Do homework.

What you can expect from me.
  1. I will always teach in the best way we know how
    and do whatever it takes our students to learn.
  2. I will always make myself available to students
    and parents, and address any concerns they might
    have (emails, phone calls, conferences).
  3. I will always protect the safety, interests, and
    rights of all individuals in the classroom.

What I can expect from you.
  1. I will always work, think, and behave in the best
    way I know how, and I will do whatever it takes
    for my fellow students and me to learn. This
    also means that I will complete all my homework
    when assigned, I will call, email, or talk with
    Mrs. Levin if I have a problem with the homework
    , and I will raise my hand and ask questions in
    class if I do not understand something.

What I can expect from you.
  • 2. I will always behave to protect the safety,
    interests, and rights of all individuals in the
    classroom. This also means that I will always
    listen to all my WPMS teammates and give everyone
    my respect.

What I can expect from you.
  • 3. I am responsible for my own behavior, and I
    will follow the teachers directions. If I make
    a mistake, this means I will tell the truth to my
    teachers and accept responsibility for my actions

  • Grades are divided into 4 categories
  • Tests and Quizzes 50
  • Homework 10
  • Labs 30
  • Informal writing INB, do-nows, exit tickets,
    etc. 10
  • You are responsible for checking your own grades
    on Infinite Campus Parent Portal.

SuppliesStudents should always bring the
following to class
  • Agenda
  • Pencil blue or black pen, pencils
  • Lined binder paper
  • Folder to keep homework in.

  • (No spiral notebooks. Spiral notebooks do not
    hold up well over time and are not durable for an
    entire year)
  • Silent Reading Book
  • Manual pencil sharpener
  • Colored pencils

  • Homework is a valuable tool for students to
    practice a particular concept. There is homework
    every night.

  • Homework, challenge work, study guides, and
    class notes are on my web page, you can go to my
    website, http//www.whiteplainspublicschools.org
  • Access Highlands school, teacher webpages, my
    webpage, and homework

  • Homework, projects, resources, study help,
    quizlets etc are listed on my webpage.
  • Students are expected to write down all homework
    in their agendas.

Late Work Policy
  • My philosophy on late work can be compared to not
    paying a utility bill or taxes on time.
  • If adults have the electricity shut off for not
    paying a bill, it doesnt mean that they will
    NEVER get electricity back, but that they will
    have to pay a penalty and be inconvenienced until
    the power is turned back on.
  • Even if a person does not pay taxes on time, the
    responsibility does not go away. The taxes
    (homework/assignment) still must be taken care
    of, and you get some credit for it when it is.
  • Therefore my late work policy is as follows
    Homework, minor self checked assignments, will be
    stamped on time only at the beginning of the
  • Unfinished homework is not accepted. (If you are
    turning it in late, it needs to be COMPLETE!)

Late Work Policy
  1. To be regarded on time, work must be completed by
    the beginning of the class on the day it is due.
  2. On time only at the beginning of the period.
  3. Mrs. Levin understands that unexpected
    circumstances occur. Therefore, she will allow
    students will receive 1 PASS pER per NINE WEEKS
    which allows students to turn in a HW assignment
    up to ONE WEEK late with NO penalty. However,
    this does require an explanation and parent
    approval (Mrs. Levin will call and double check).
    This pass must be turned and attached to the
    late assignment.

Late Work
  1. After the ONE OOPS PASS has been used, any
    homework not turned in the day it is due (by the
    time I check it in your block) is considered late
    and will be penalized 1 LETTER GRADE PER DAY
  2. Late work should be turned into the turn in
    basket and clearly labeled LATE HOW MANY DAYS
    YOU ARE LATE. (Example Late 1). Mrs. Levin
    knows work that is handed in on time because it
    is STAMPED on the date it was due. After four
    days, assignments will automatically receive a 50
    if turned in.
  3. If you are absent from the assignment, you have
    as many days as you were absent to makeup the

How to leave class
  • The bell does not dismiss you, I do.
  • When dismissed, push in your chair.
  • Walk out the door.

This year..
  • We will learn a lot about science.
  • If you do your work, you will ace the science
  • We will have fun!
