Primary Resources for Students

GOOGLE CLASSROOM is used frequently by everyone at the school for posting announcements and assignments. It provides a safe and easy way to connect and collaborate, share content, and access assignments and school notices. This is where students can ask questions and receive feedback from teachers and other students. Google Classroom is also where students and parents can see ALL THE ASSIGNMENTS that students must work on for each class. There is a calendar that provides a simple and quick look at what has been assigned and what is forthcoming. Also, just like Facebook, announcements and upcoming events are constantly posted on Google Classroom in the school forum. Google Classroom is the most important resource to check for school communications and activities. 

BOOKEO is used for scheduling. Students use Bookeo to schedule their classes at the beginning of each unit. Student class schedules will change each unit and students are responsible for creating their class structure.
