Class Dojo intregration

Class Dojo is a behavior tracking and reporting tool that can be used in any class at any grade level. Through the app on my iphone/ipad, I reward students with a positive point that aligns with our school goals.

ClassDojo is the easiest way for teachers to encourage students, and share their best moments with parents.

Teachers use ClassDojo as a communication platform to encourage students, and get parents engaged too.
