Nonverbal communication includes facial expressions & body language that shows I'm listening & have a good attitude. Verbal communication includes addressing people by their name, speaking politely, silently raising my hand to get permission to ask questions in class, & giving thoughtful responses. I will avoid being impolite or appear to interrupt learning.ACT RESPONSIBLY TO INVEST IN MY FUTURE:I want to act responsibly because I know this will help my current & future success. I will strive to learn in class by thoroughly completing my planner daily, arriving on time, & being on task. I will use time wisely, take the initiative, and do my best whether completing & turning in an assignment, in a class discussion, studying, or taking a test. If I need help I will ask a teacher, collaborate with a student or parent, or research online.TEAM MENTALITY TO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO SUCCEED:I want to practice team mentality so I can encourage others & be encouraged to be successful. I will strive to show patience, exhibit a helpful attitude, interact respectfully, & fulfill my role when I'm in a group or in a classroom discussion. I will remind others of community expectations & will show initiative to help out. I understand this is preparing me to make a positive contribution in the future within a global community.SAFETY FIRST BECAUSE OUR TEAM'S HEALTH IS IMPORTANT:I want to show safety first mentality by respecting the materials, equipment, & possessions of students, teachers, & the school. This means that after receiving permission to use the above, I will take special care with them to avoid property damage & injury. I will promote school safety by practicing safe personal interactions, using hall passes appropriately, keeping our campus safe, & helping school drills be successful.
