Always try your best.
Use a “just right” voice volume.
Be a good listener.
If you choose to be responsible and follow the rules:
Each day that homework and morning work is complete, a student is able to earn green Dojo points.
When a student always gets homework done and shows good behavior, he/she is able to earn special privileges (lunch with teacher, homework pass etc.).
When Dojo point’s goal is made each day, students earn a small prize and periodically the highest scoring student of the day is rewarded.
Name on respect/responsibility chart puts you in the running to earn a trip to the treasure chest.
Special opportunities like working at the William Street bookstore, passing back attendance folders to homerooms etc.
If you choose to break a rule:
Dojo red points for specific behavior
If behavior issues continue, you will begin losing P.A.T. minutes (Fun Friday) or free-time minutes equal to the class time missed for inappropriate behaviors. (Possible phone call to parents or dojo message/email if behaviors become more sever in nature or are reoccurring)
Individual behavior plans for students requiring more reinforcement.
