  • Things you Need to Know

    Here's a short list of what is expected of students in this classroom:

        Students must be on time (in your seat when the bell rings).  Being late to class WILL have an effect on your grade!
        Students should be prepared for class.  Pencils, plans and whatever you will need on a daily basis to accomplish your work for that day.
        Cell phones ARE NOT ALLOWED in this class!  They will be taken from you if they are seen or heard!
        Safety is unquestionably the most important aspect of this class.  Disregarding established safety rules or acting in an unsafe manner are reasons for removal from class.
        You and you alone are responsible for the quality of your own work.
        All required paperwork, class fees (or written arrangements) and safety exams must be complete before you are allowed to work in the shop.

    There is a lot more that you need to know so this is just the beginning!
