What do I need to do to be sure my divorce gets onto the judge’s calendar?

In an uncontested case with a filed Settlement agreement, and then a MJOP, there should be no hearing at all. The purpose of the MJOP is to ask the court to sign the final order without a hearing. The court will readily grant such a motion when at least one lawyer is involved, but with no lawyer, the court may require an actual hearing. Look up who the judge's law clerk, etc is, and send that person a polite email following up on the status, CC your spouse, and do not reach out directly to the judge.
