Welcome to Mrs. Ferrell's 6th Grade Science Class  

Welcome

Welcome to Mrs. Ferrell’s 6th grade Science class at Lewisburg Middle School.  I hope you are looking forward to an exciting, challenging, and successful school year.  Your teachers and I are here to help you develop responsibility, independence, and organization in addition to mastering the required academic standards for 6th grade Science in Desoto County.  My classroom is a place for creativity, energetic group work, and obviously learning.  In order for the daily lessons to run efficiently, there must be classroom rules and procedures set in place.  Rules must be followed by everyone at all time.  Please take time to review our classroom rules, conduct, and procedures so that we can all work together to make your 6th grade experience the best it can possibly be. 

Classroom Expectations

The expectations I have established in my classroom are needed to insure that unwanted behaviors and activities are avoided and that everyone has a pleasant, friendly, and safe place to learn and grow academically.  My classroom expectations are as follows:

1.        Be on Time

2.        Be prepared

3.        Be respectful ….to others, to yourself, and to your school

Classroom Conduct

Good behavior will not go unnoticed.  Students will earn satisfactory marks for conduct.  They may also receive candy, special classroom privileges, and/or homework passes. 

On the other hand, behavior that is not in compliance with the classroom expectations will have to be addressed.  As we all know, children have “off” days.  Therefore, I go by the “three strike rule.”   Since Science is only a 50 minute class, I need every minute to teach, so if a student is not following classroom expectations, they will be given one warning.   After that, they will get three strikes.  First time student is not adhering to class expectations they will receive “first strike” or basically a piece of paper where they will have to write what they were doing wrong and sign it.  The second time they are disrupting class or not meeting expectations, they will fill out a piece of paper and sign it as well as have a parent or guardian sign and date.  Finally, the “third strike” will receive a phone call, email, or text from me letting you know that your child has reached their “third strike” and if it happens again, they will be written up and sent to the office.  They will get a warning and three strikes each semester.
