ClassDojo for Specials
Last week you should have received a letter inviting you to join ClassDojo. If you haven't signed up yet, please consider joining. This is a digital tool used by PE, music, and art to communicate with our students and parents. Each child receives a unique code created for them. This code is private and viewed only by you, your child, and their specials' teachers. We strongly encourage you to join, so that you can receive immediate feedback on your child's behaviors while attending our classes. While we do occasionally note positive behaviors we see during our classes, it is used mostly to communicate areas of concern. Our hopes are that you might check ClassDojo daily with your child to offer compliments on a job well done, or visit with them about noted behaviors, and provide counsel to them should this situation arise again in the future. This is by far the best tool we have found to use as a team to help redirect unproductive behaviors prior to them escalating. Thank you for your support in working with us to help your child succeed in this new year. If you have any questions, please contact our Learning Leader, Michelle Basil, for more information.
2. Student birthdays may be celebrated with pencils and other small items, but food may not be sent in due to district policy. Book donations to the classroom or library may be made in honor of your child's special day. Birthdays will be recognized in the classroom at the end of the day.
3. Your child will need a pair of headphones to use with his/her iPad in class each day. Please label them and send these to class as soon as you can.
