ATTENDANCE:
Class. 1 hour per week. Monday. Room 102.
Attending the class is expected, since we value your input to our discussions. However, things do come up that may take priority. You may miss two classes without penalty. After two absences your grade will be reduced 5% (and we will chat). For example; miss 1 class no penalty, miss 2 classes no penalty, miss 3 classes -5% and then -1% more for each additional class missed. I suggest you save them for special occasions. Note: being late to class twice times will equal one absence. Regardless, projects are due when specified whether you are in class or not.

Labs and assignments.
You may miss 2 labs without penalty as above, but projects and assignments are due when specified, regardless. Please wear appropriate clothing: no open shoes or sandals in the scene shop, long hair tied back etc. (You will not be allowed to attend). On the days we are in the scene shop, you will very likely get dirty--so be prepared! We will be building with wood and painting everything in sight. This is the fun stuff so get ready to get involved.
