• Mrs. Impey's Expectations

    Mrs. Impey's Expectations:
    • Be prepared and on time.
    • NO personal electronic devices. 
      • Bring yoru Chromebook to class every day!
      • iPads may be available to use for art room research.
      • MacBooks are provided to students in Photography & Digital Design.
    • Be respectful of each other & the materials.
    • Take responsibility for the art room.
    • Be open to constructive criticism & make an effort to grow.
    • Students MUST have an active Artsonia account.  Artsonia will be incorporated into the reflection and grading procedures this year.
    Discipline Procedures:
    • Students who refuse to work on appropriate class projects and / or threaten the safety of themselves or other students will immediately be sent to the office without a warning.
    • Students will receive ONE warning about electronic devices.  The second time it is seen out, it will be confiscated and sent to the office (the daily "classroom professionalism" grade will be notated with a "C" in SchoolTool if a student received a warning).  As per the school policy, electronic devices are NOT allowed in the classroom.
    • Students who are late to class three times within a quarter will have a referral written. 
    Make-Up Policy:
    • Please refer to the student handbook for district make-up policies.
    • At anytime before the end of the marking period, a student may re-do / finish an in-class project (drawing, painting, etc.) for a higher grade.
    • Students may always come down during a study hall if there is enough room in my classroom during that period.  I will not hunt students down to make up their work, and students must get a pre-signed pass for the period.
    • You may ALWAYS re-do or improve upon any past art project, but you MUST turn it in at least 3 days before the end of a marking period it was assigned in.
    • Art is about the process, so it is important that students are present! If a student is absent during class, they will receive a "0" for their daily professionalism grade until a pink excused absence slip is brought to Mrs. Impey AND the student makes up the missed classtime by staying after school with Mrs. Impey for Academic Support or by coming down during a study hall.
