We are here to learn. There will be times in the studio where this learning will not come easy. You will struggle at times, but having self-respect and confidence allows you to learn from your mistakes.
Each and every person who enters the studio is expected to conduct themselves with consideration and maturity. One cannot expect to be treated with respect if he or she is not respectful towards others. We will respect and support each other in our shared learning experience. THIS IS A GOSSIP FREE CLASSROOM.
Respect for the Studio
Respecting the space that we work in will ensure our safety and effectiveness. Each student is responsible to keep their work space neat and clean. Materials should always be used appropriately and clean up should be a team effort.
Cell Phone Policy:
Cell phone usage of any kind is not permitted during class. Listening to music on your phone will be a privilege that is earned through hard work and dedication in the arts. Listening to music is up to the teacher’s discretion. If a student is caught using their cell phone for any purpose, the following actions will be taken; 1. Teacher will ask student to put it away politely 2. Student will receive an official warning 3. Phone will be confiscated until the end of class and a discipline referral will be entered.
Our studio space can not run properly without everyones’ active participation in clean-up. Together we can clean tables, properly stored away materials, and make sure all spaces of the studio are organized and ready for other learners. Until these tasks are accomplished as a team, no student will be dismissed to their next period class even if the bell has rung. Clean-Up will be checked and if lack of participation is observed, it will be noted in the Time Resource Management category of the gradebook.
