ClassDojo is our classroom behavior system. Students get positive points for demonstrating good behavior. On the other hand, they get red points which deducts from their total for bad behavior. Students have an account where they can change their avatar monsters and have them show up the next day in class. Parents are sent a report each Friday as a summary of the week's behavior. Parents can log on whenever they please to see comments, messenger the teacher about a question, or do a daily check of classroom behavior. Parents can sign up using email, phone number to get texts, or download the app.
Remind is a text messenger system. I will usually use it to send out reminders about events, upcoming tests, or remind you to sleep in for a teacher workday. You can download the app or simply use the text service.
