Social Contract

In our classrooms this year, we are making social contracts.

This is an opportunity for students to have a voice in what types of behavior and expectations are right for our class.

I don't want you to miss out.

Some common things that students want to include in a contract are:

respect

no put downs

follow directions

listen to others

There are many more, what do you most want to see in our classroom - you may include items listed above. Please send me an email today with what you want included so that I can be sure your ideas are in the contract. I will wait to have the class sign the social contract until I have your input, so please be sure to type what you want included! kmccorkle@brenhamk-12.net

A video to leave you with... I am from New England and this video was taken on Cape Cod this summer. It was projected onto a church. Sandwich is the town from which I moved and they were celebrating their 375th anniversary this year.
