The class was introduced to a classroom management tool called CLASSDOJO. Each student has an avatar and receives points based on positive behavior (ie. arriving on time, being prepared, having your own novel etc). AT the end of the month, the students can 'cash in' their point for rewards. These rewards were decided a s a class. I encourage you to speak with your son/daughter about this new initiative and the rewards. https://www.classdojo.com/about

This week was also TYKTWD (Take Your Kid to Work Day). I had to opportunity to visit students and am pleased with the amount of participation and initiative by our students, I hope they all had fun and learned a lot!
