Class Expectations and Procedures
Students earn money based on behavior, attendance, academic excellence, and citizenship. Students pay rent and utilities monthly. Students will have an opportunity to spend the money that they have earned throughout the year at the Bobcat Market. The market will be held three times a year.
Our plan this year is reinforced through our Bobcat Town Program. Students will be awarded by following the Harelson Code of Conduct and fined if the rules are not followed.
1st fine: Warning
2nd fine: Missed Recess
3rd fine: Parent Contact
Serious infractions that fall outside of our Bobcat Buck system will be dealt with separately.

Homework and Graded Assignments
Students will have approximately 50 minutes of homework a night. All homework assignments will be written in the student's agenda. Students are also expected to read 30 minutes per night. Graded projects are expected to be turned in on time. Any projects turned in late will be lowered by, at least, one grade.
Students will record all of their homework assignments and school activities in their agenda. The agenda should be signed by a parent every night. Graded work, school information, and a parent newsletter will be sent home in an envelope every Tuesday.
