What is Class Dojo? A way for families and teachers to communicate about our students. We have a point system that allows us to reward and redirect students throughout the day. We can also share announcements and cool things students are doing throughout the day.

Why do parents need to join it? It is proven by research that parent involvement positively impacts students' success! Your student and teachers want to highlight all the great things happening in the classroom and show it all to everyone at home. Dojo makes this easy to do!

How do I join my student's class? There is a Class Dojo app for Android and Apple users that is free to download. It's completely free to use at home and at school. You will be able to connect to your student ONE TIME and have access to all of your student's teachers. Only join the HOMEROOM class for your student.
