Family & Community Resources

We share many community resources with the School Story on ClassDojo. If you don’t already, please sign up! It’s not only a great way to stay up to date on these resources but also a great way to communicate with your student’s classroom teacher. Not sure how to sign up? Check out this instructional video: How to Sign Up for ClassDojo at Bay Brook EMS
