My name is Mrs.
Holley-Brice. I am here to help you learn mathematical concepts. I want you to
be successful. My number one rule is respect and my second is “ask questions.”
I want you to have understanding. Do not hesitate to ask me for help.
Today is a new day!
Forget about the past. Leave all negativity out the door. You are smart.
You can learn and do all the math problems we are going to tackle together in
I love math. I am
married and a mother of five children. I love to read, sing, and eat. I want
every child to know they are special and that math is not hard. It can be fun!
If you do not understand something, please ask for understanding. We must strive
together to reach the finish line and gain success. If there is a concern,
please let me know. Classroom rules are on top of the board in the front of the
classroom. Please follow them.
The first offense
to the rules will result in a WARNING; and the second a parent phone call. I
am hoping all issues will be resolved by this point. If not, a parent
conference will follow, along with disciplinary actions, such as, ISS, OSS,
and/or long-term suspension.
encourage your child to bring their materials to class each day. Classroom
supplies list will be given to each student to keep in their Interactive
Homework is due when you walk in the classroom, before the bell
rings. Baskets, labeled with your period number, are located in the
back of the room.
If you are absent, it is your responsibility to submit your make
up work. I will be passing out a buddy sheet. Get a classmate
information, so when you have to be absent you are able to get the notes and
homework assignment. If absent for test or quiz, prior arrangements for
make-ups must be arranged with teacher. Emergencies are understood. There will
be a quiz every Wednesday and a test every Friday, unless otherwise stated.
Notes are checked periodically. Your notebook should look like my notebook, as
far as, note title, work sheet order, and etcetera. A grading rubric will be
displayed in the classroom before notebook checks. I am checking for accuracy,
order, and neatness. Details on what material go in each notebook will be
discussed in class. Remember, if you have questions…ask.
There will be a
warm-up daily to be completed when the bell rings. When entering the classroom,
grab a calculator, your notebook, and any worksheet(s) that may be in the front
of the classroom, your personal supplies, and sharpen your pencil before the
tardy bell rings. Please do not interrupt the classroom if you did not
grab your materials or sharpen your pencil upon entering the room. Wait until
instructions are given and I have stopped talking.
Students are not
allowed to go to the restroom the first 45 minutes or the last 15 minutes,
please adjust yourself accordingly. It is imperative that you use the restroom
before coming to class. Cell phones are not permitted out during class. If you
have an emergency situation at home, please let me know before class start so
that I will be aware if a cell phone needs to be put on silent. If you are
caught with your phone, I will collect it and report it to the office. Your
parent/guardian will have to come and pick it up afterschool.
There is a calendar
in the back of the room that will list important information, such as test
days, progress report distribution days, and after school tutoring days.
Please check the calendar periodically for important updates.
Calculators will be
assigned. You are responsible for the calculator assigned to you. If you
abused the use of the calculator, the privilege will be taken from you. If
damages occur, you will be responsible for replacing the calculator.
