Turning in Work

Google Classroom

Microsoft Teams 

I will be using Microsoft Teams throughout the school year.  Microsoft Teams is a part of the Microsoft Office 365 suite and is available on your child’s student portal.  This is how your child will be turning in their classwork and homework.  You can check your child’s assignments there and it will help you to keep track of what work they’ve finished. 😊  You can also download the program or app onto your devices if you would rather access it that way by clicking here.  Your child can complete their work on paper if needed and then you can take a picture of it and attach it to their assignment before turning it in.  All work must be sent digitally in order for it to be graded.  Acrobat Adobe Reader with the 'Fill and Sign' option can also be used to have your child complete their work when the file is a PDF.  To download Acrobat Adobe Reader click here, and to download the app on one of your devices click here.  


I will be utilizing Microsoft Teams to hold parent conferences with you and to meet face-to-face with my students everyday throughout the school day if for whatever reason we can not attend in person.
