We use the online interactive behavior system Class Dojo to enforce our behavior policy. Students earn points for positive behavior! In addition, students may lose points for inappropriate behavior. Whole class and negative individual student points will reset at the beginning of each month. Positive individual student points will carry over to the next month!
Please download and use the Dojo App to join their child’s homeroom teacher’s class. After joining their class, they will be able to see when their child earns or loses points.

Whole Class Rewards:
If the whole class receives a total number of points determined by the teacher by the end of the month, the whole class will participate in a monthly behavior incentive activity (i.e. movie day, donut day, etc.).
Students can redeem their points for various school prizes!
Loss of points fall under three categories: Classroom Readiness, Homework Completion, and Behavior. Once a student has lost three points in one category, they will attend an after school Friday Reflection 2:30-3:15. Negative points will reset at the end of each month!
