2020 - 2021 Syllabus
Anderson-Shiro Junior High School
WELCOME BACK STUDENTS & PARENTS!
Below is my class syllabus containing class expectations, procedures, and policies. Please read over it carefully, as some policies have changed. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to growing your child’s math knowledge this year!
It is extremely important that all students bring the necessary supplies to class every day, and that each student has their supplies by the end of the first week of school.
- Loose-leaf notebook paper
- 2 Expo Markers
- 1 ½ Binder with a clear sleeve on the cover
- 3 Dividers
**Note: Binders will be used to complete homework, study for tests, and required for class daily.
In this Math class, students are required to arrive to class on time each day, ready to give their best effort, with all the necessary supplies. Students must always be ready and willing to listen and communicate with me as well as their classmates. Lastly, students must always respect everyone who they work with in the classroom. Students will also abide by all other rules in the student handbook. As a class we will write our own classroom “norms” that we will follow.
Cell Phone Policy
At the beginning of each class period students are required to place their cell phones away and off. If a cell phone is seen or heard during class it will be sent to the office.
Student disruption/disrespect will be handled as follows:
1st offense: verbal warning
2nd offense: Detention/parent contact (detention can be before or after school)
3rd offense: Office referral/parent contact
All discipline matters will strictly follow the rules and procedures as outlined in the student handbook.
Please see the student handbook for updated grading policy and specific guidelines. As stated in the ASCISD handbook, 9-week grades will be determined as follows:
- 60% Academic Achievement
- 40% Academic Practice
**** If your child fails to complete their homework, expect a phone call from your child during the class period, asking for permission to stay after school to complete the missing assignment.
- Monday –Thursday 3:28 – 4:00 p.m.
- Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday: 7:30-7:55 a.m.
- Additional times may be arranged with Mr. Borski. Please do this at least one day prior to the day you plan to attend.

How can you STAY CONNECTED with what is going on inside class?
Parents, I will make my best effort to keep you in the know about what is going on in class. However, there are several ways for you to stay updated and involved this year! Here are a few ways for you to stay connected to what’s going on in our classroom:
- Monthly calendars will be posted on my website and handed out to students.
- These will be placed in the front of their binders.
- Borski’s Website
In the case of a shut down due to COVID-19, your student will be asked to follow a lesson plan that will be set on the Edgenuity platform. Your child will have the opportunity to explore this platform before asked to do any assignments remotely. They will also be asked to check for messages and/or assignments on Remind. I will make the transition as easy and as simple as possible. Thank you in advance for understanding.
