Community Care Contract

We just completed our Community Care Contract for fifth grade this year. Much discussion and thought went into the crafting of this years contract. The sentences, "Is it kind?" and "Does it help build community?" created the largest discussion and debate. It was finally decided that the simplicity of those sentences really did encompass everything we all cared about and everybody's concerns were addressed. So with Quaker-like simplicity we completed our contracts, and they are now hung in our classrooms.

  1. If everyone lived their lives according to your 5th grade Community Care Contract(love the alliteration!), the world would be a much better place. Bravo!
