What is Class Dojo?

Class Dojo is a "Behavior Tracking" program we are now using schoolwide here at EMIS. You can view your student's behavior live and view past records by joining your child's class. You can also view pictures and happenings in your child's class! Just ask your student's teacher about her class code to connect!
Join Class Dojo Today

You will still need a code from your student's teacher to connect to their class. Just email them for the code or ask them to send the invite straight to your email or phone.
