I will be implementing "Capturing Kids Hearts" into my classroom expectations.  The goal is to build relationships and grow the group. This involves a social contract for each class created by the students for the students and myself.  This program will encourage students to become quality leaders, reduce social anxiety, help students to become more responsible, increase motivation, promote social skills, promote optimism, increase communication skills, reduce misbehavior & disrespect while maintaining  boundaries and preserving relationships with peers and teachers and hopefully win their hearts to lead them to their personal best. 

HOMEWORK POLICY:  Assignments will be due on the date specified by the teacher unless the student is absent  (See student handbookI do not assign homework often!Dancing People.png.  If homework is assigned it may consist of reviewing concepts taught that day through summaries, notes, enrichment tasks and/or reinforcement worksheets, reviewing for a quiz or test, completing a reinforcement concept/assignment that was taught that day and student did not have time to complete due to an interruption and/or did not use class time wisely.

GRADING POLICY:  Daily work, homework, quizzes, tests, labs, and projects will all be included in determining a grade: 
Tests 40%     
Daily Work/Homework/Labs/Projects 30%      
Quizzes 20%     
Quick-Labs/Journals/Participation 10%
