Hello and welcome to Mr. Pullum's page!

This class utilizes Google Classroom
 as it’s primary means of providing information/resources to parents and students until we return to school. 

Google Classroom: Google Classroom allows me to create and collect assignments paperlessly. Students can keep track of what's due on the Assignments page and begin working with a click. Students should login with your Google Apps account.  To access Google Classroom, visit:  (remember you have to use your Google Chrome Browser) 

For Parents: If you have not been added as a Guardian on your student's Google Classroom, please let me know. 

Below is a list of the Objectives that we have covered so far this school year:
