R.C. Waters top Class Dojo winners
        Several R.C. Waters Elementary were honored as top ClassDojo winners for January.
        The school has been participating in a school-wide initiative called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) –a process for creating safer and more effective schools by creating a safe and productive learning environment. A set of unified expectations is in place in classroom and non-classroom settings throughout the schools – “Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Ready.”
        ClassDojo is a behavior-tracking system designed to reinforce positive behaviors and engage students in becoming responsible for their own choices. 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.
        Top Class Dojo winners January included:
        Kindergarten: Jacob Rohrer, Kash Myerholtz, Elia Lehman, Ethan Paul, Will Denslow, Madelyn Zak, Caleb Smith and Brantlee Bond.
        First grade: Cora Wright, Tyler Metroff, Hadleigh Swihart, Hank Hartman and Marley Graber.
        Second grade: Alek Oka, Ella DeVito, Avery Sorg, Bridget Berry, Madilynn Wagner, Bowen Baumgartner, TJ Logan, Dominick Borjas, and Lilly Greer.
        Third grade: Hayden Wright, Harley Carroll, Eloise Cantwell, Andee Hopfinger, Madelynn Metroff, Amiya Portales, Isaiah McBee, Amelia Reinbolt, and Kenleigh Ring.
