Last year, I used ClassDojo to communicate with parents. It was AWESOME and the parents loved it!
You will find important messages and announcements in the Class Story. I also use ClassDojo to send and receive private messages with parents. No more searching through emails or schoolbags for a random note I sent home, everything is right in ClassDojo. Parents can even comment on a post with a question and I can answer it for the entire community of parents who probably had the same quesiton. I will also use Class Dojo to record student behavior and participation.
Parents can use the website (www.classdojo.com) or install the app on their phone.
*8/25/2020 - Currently, only parents will have access to ClassDojo. Please wait for teacher direction for STUDENTS to log into this program.
