National Bullying Prevention Month

PBS is airing a special on Monday focusing on Bullying. I am including the link from the PBS page. I plan to watch it and encourage students and parents to do the same. This is an issue that many students face. Hopefully, this PBS special will help bring awareness to this difficult issue.

Class Dojo

We are using an application for behavior management and incentives called "Class Dojo". Students can earn points for working hard, staying on task, and helping others. They can also have points deducted for talking out of turn, being disrespectful, being unprepared for class, and being off task. They can choose from the rewards list based on the number of points they have earned for the week. The rewards at this time include listening to music, changing seats, working in the hall, and bringing a snack to eat in class. We are excited about using this new application!!1
