What is Class Dojo?
Class Dojo is an app that allows parents to stay updated in their student's learning and classroom environment. On this app, I can post homework and assignments, updates, and other important information. This app will also be used as a way for me to communicate with parents. There is a "messages" option that allows me to speak with you through the app.
Most importantly, Class Dojo is used as a way to motivate students to learn and become effective leaders. Students will be rewarded points for positive behavior, and deducted points for negative behavior. As students build up their points, they will receive prizes.

It is important that we all understand this app is not meant to be a competition, but rather a way to track and support student behavior so that we maintain a positive classroom environment. I focus deeply on creating a "family" classroom environment so I reward the most points for students who are encouraging and kind towards their classmates. I do not tolerate teasing or bullying of any kind.
