Technology Tools for Classroom Management

I am an elementary school teacher, but I teach science enrichment to each class at my school TK-5th, one hour a week. For that reason, I am more like a middle school teacher.

I am trying to find a classroom management system to use for all my students/whole school. Mostly what I want it for is school to home communication and sending out news.

In the past I used ClassDojo. I did NOT use it the way it is designed and did not use the negative/minus points part of the application. I would sometimes do table points or something like that, but I used it mostly so I could send out broadcasts. But it doesn't do other things that I want it to do.

I also use JupiterGrades to be able to easily do class lists, printouts and seating charts - but it only lets you do one chart per class. I need two seating charts per class.

I would love to find a program that combines all of these features, and even better if it has avatars for the kids!

I can also do plugins for wordpress to add to my website instead.

Anyone know of such a tool. I tried to check out RedCritter, but not sure if that is what I was looking for or not.

I should add that I don't need to keep a gradebook really, but being able to keep track of who turns something in or not would be helpful.

I also love Class Dojo. If you focus on the positive, it is a wonderful program with so many new features!
