6th Grade Families
The Charter is an agreement about how students want to feel as part of school life. The Charter names specific behaviors likely to evoke and support those feelings, and includes constructive ways of handling conflict. It is a powerful tool to encourage personal and social responsibility to work together towards creating the kind of emotional climate that everyone wants. When the charter is complete it will be displayed, signed by all 6th graders, and revisited often over time.
