I am so glad that we are finally back in school, even if it is different for now! I hope each of you had a great summer. I will be posting assignments on the Specialty Teachers' Google Classroom, but I will still be using my website for announcements, fun music links, videos, and other important information. Check back later for more updates! I can't wait to see you online!
Specialty Teachers' Google Classroom
This school year, the Specialty teachers are sharing one Google Classroom. We are trying to streamline what your child sees when they log in to Google Classroom and to make it easier to find assignments. These assignments are for students who are unable to log in to their Zoom Specialty classes during the day. To find your grade level's class code, click the link titled Google Classroom Codes in the menu bar on the left-hand side of the page. It is located between Announcements and Quaver Music Accounts.
