Google Classroom:

 We will be using Google Classroom this year. Google Classroom allows me to create and collect assignments paperless. 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)

 I'll be continuing to use Google Classroom as a way to communicate and provide information and resources to both students and parents until we return to school.  Students joined their class page at the beginning of the year, however, if you need the code to access the page please send me an email.
