Aside from academics, in Third Grade we also focus on developing social skills such as respect, friendship, citizenship, and effort. In order to recognize a job well done on these behaviors, your child will earn Class Dojo points for various skills practiced in class. Just as students earn points for good choices, they will also lose points when poor choices are made.
Please create an account to view your child's progress (daily, weekly, as you choose!). Your child's information can only be seen by you if you sign up for an account with your child's personal code that is provided at the beginning of the school year. Classroom updates, newsletters, and photos will be shared on our class story through your account. You may also use your account to message the teacher in a format similar to text messaging. This is one of our best forms of communication on your child's behavior. If behaviors (positive or negative) persist, trust that I will be in touch through other forms of communication.
Please note that every student will start at 0 Dojo Points at the beginning of each school day- every day is a new day and a new chance to make good choices! I will refresh Dojo Points in the morning before school so you can view your child's progress at night if you choose to.
Please Note: Anna McDonald follows a school-wide STAR Reward program. Each child is eligible for our school STAR Reward Day each trimester to celebrate exemplary behavior and responsibility. The students will follow a point system. They start each trimester with 10 points, and they will be ineligible if they lose all 10 points. If your child ends the day with 60% or less positive green Dojo Points, he or she will lose 2 STAR Reward points for that day. STAR Reward points refresh at the start of each trimester.
