• Class Dojo - Sanchez, Jocelyne - Mater Gardens Academy

    We use the online interactive behavior system Class Dojo to enforce our behavior policy. Students earn points for positive behavior! In addition, students may lose points for inappropriate behavior. Whole class and negative individual student points will reset at the beginning of each month. Positive individual student points will carry over to the next month!

    Please download and use the Dojo App to join their child’s homeroom teacher’s class. After joining their class, they will be able to see when their child earns or loses points.
