Class Dojo, Behavior Assessments, and Homework ๐Ÿ““

Class Dojo reports can be accessed online. If you need your child's code, please email me. Please remember that Class Dojo tracks positive behavior. Once earned, students' Dojo points are never taken away from them. If a child needs support with his/her behavior, they will fill out a think sheet reflection which is sent home to be signed.



Behavior assessments are filled out each day by your child. I am so proud of their self-reflection skills! They've done an excellent job with their self-assessments so far. Please be sure to discuss their achievements with them and sign the assessment each evening.


Homework this week consists of:


  • Read each night for 20 minutes and fill out reading log
  • Math packet (due Friday)

*No Fundations homework for the remainder of the year.

As always, thank you so much for all you do. It is an honor to teach your child.
