R.C. Waters Elementary participates in a school-wide initiative called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools by allowing a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn. R.C. Waters has adopted a unified set of expectations for behavior in our school. The unified classroom expectations, found in every classroom and non-classroom settings in the school, are as follows: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready.
Student behavior is documented using a tool called ClassDojo, a free behavior tracking system that reinforces positive behaviors and quickly engages students in becoming accountable for their own choices. One of the main benefits is the easy opportunity to communicate with parents. On a scheduled rotation, students are able to “shop” from the Dojo reward cart using the points they have earned for meeting the behavior expectations.
R.C. Waters has highlight the top Class Dojo winners for the month of May.
