Teacher Gets a Shave

Our own PE teacher, Mr. Thomas Beck, offered 1st grade students at Jane Edwards Elementary a chance to shave his beard if they could reach 500 points in Class Dojo, a classroom management system used by their teacher, Sarah Hennigan.  Students earn Class Dojo points by following directions, helping others, completing homework, participating in class, showing persistence and hard work, and working as a team.  At the beginning of the year, they made a deal with Mr. Beck that when they reached their 500 point goal, they could give him a shave, so on Wednesday, October 30, 8 students took a razor and shaved away.  Their next goal is to earn 400 points for a pizza party.
