    Classroom DOJO 

    This year we will be using Class Dojo in our classroom along with the behavior chart. Class Dojo is a great tool to encourage working together, responsibility, and being prepared. It is also an easy way to instantly see your child’s behavior in class. Students will be rewarded with points for displaying positive behaviors. You will also be able to see the skills they need to work on.  An invitation will be sent to parents/guardians via text or email.  I would arrange to access the app on your cell phone. This will allow for instant communication.
