Classroom Behavior

Class Dojo

Mrs. Smiths Classroom Behavior Policy

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 At River Mill Academy we hold high expectations for classroom behavior, because we want your child to receive their best education in a safe and nurturing environment. I have outlined below what those will be for this year.

Your child is expected to follow our basic classroom rules which are:

  1. Be kind and help others
  2. Raise hand before speaking
  3. Stay in seat while completing work
  4. Listen and follow Directions
  5. Work quietly
  6. Do their best

We will be using the Class Dojo App this year to record negative and positive behavior. Students can earn points in Class Dojo for positive behavior, and they lose points for negative behavior. I will be sending home login information so that you can setup the Class Dojo App on your device. If you have any questions about how to use Class Dojo, please contact me. When your child loses a point, they are expected to walk 2 laps at recess for each point lost. If they lose three or more points in a day they are expected to walk the whole time at recess. Other consequences for continued misbehavior include silent lunch/snack, parent contact, an office discipline referral, and school suspension.

Students will earn points when they are caught exhibiting positive behavior. Your child can use their positive points to earn different prizes at the end of each week. If your child loses 4 or more points throughout the week, they are disqualified from earning a prize. Your child’s points will also be recorded on a calendar inside their homework folder. Please check this daily and initial below their total points.

If your child struggles to follow the behavioral expectations of the class, I will contact you to set-up a conference to discuss ways we can work together to help your child succeed.

Let’s make this year awesome! J


Mrs. Smith
