You are Responsible for Your Own Learning
Be prepared: come to class early, bring proper materials, and set out work without being told.
You are responsible for keeping track of your assignments in a daily planner. Homework is posted in the classroom and on the website. If absent, you are responsible to find out what you missed and to hand in any required work.
Assignments need to be completed and handed in on time.
