My syllabus includes a couple great quotes from historic figures at the beginning to emphasize the importance of the class. It then goes into structure, rules, procedures, organization, responsibilities, etc. At the end there is a place for student/parent signature just in case they claim down the road that the rules don't apply to them... don't kid yourself, there's some crazies out there.
The quiz is strategically organized to hit on the most important aspects of the syllabus. After all, we don't make the things for nothing.
