This year we will be using an app called "Class Dojo" as a method of tracking students' accomplishments throughout the year. Additionally, this app creates an easy path of communication between parents and myself. Our goal is for all parents and students to be connected through Class Dojo for the 2019-2020 school year. This is a great and easy way for parents and students to stay up to date with upcoming events and classroom happenings.
Our class will be following the school-wide matrix for behavioral expectations this year. Behavioral expecations for all students are listed below.
Be on task and give your best effort.
Keep your work area clean.
Use active listening.
Respect the Space and property of others.
