Several items in this week's update. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend. 😀
Computer Lab: We are having an issue with computers freezing at login in the main lab. I have made it part of our end of class procedures for students to restart their computers before lining up. If you bring your class into the lab, please remind students to restart their computer before leaving. Thank you for your help with this.
Google Classroom: For those using Google Classroom, you may have noticed a few changes over the past week or so.
- New theme options.
- Class Code is now shown in your classroom header below your class name. See the example below. If you click on the brackets, it will display the code for all to easily see. (Nice when students are joining your classroom for the first time.)
- Drag and drop assignments to reorder them on the CLASSWORK page.
- Adding Material Section to your Google Classroom
Lab/iPad Sign-Up Calendars: Just a reminder that when you want to use either of the labs (main or hallway) or iPad carts (lab or skills cart), you should reserve them online by accessing the appropriate Google Calendar. If you are unable to access any of the calendars, please let me know and I will reshare the appropriate calendar(s) with you.
Lastly, when adding an event to the calendar, Google will default to your personal calendar. You must click the drop-down arrow near your name to select a different calendar. If you do not, then the event will only show up on your calendar :( Hoping to avoid any scheduling conflicts.
**The paper calendars on the iPad carts DO NOT reflect online sign-ups. They only show who has a permanent sign-up spot for the year.**
Report Cards - Accessing last year's report cards: eSchoolPLUS does not provide access for teachers to see last year's report cards. However, Leslie can generate report cards from previous years.
WeatherSTEM: You will now see a link under FOR STUDENTS for WeatherSTEM. This links to the weather station at CH, which was part of a WPSF Grant from last year.
