  • How do I find out about classroom events?

    Posted by:

    Consult the classroom calendar. Your room rep will send out a notification with a link to the classroom calendar when it is complete. You need to be signed in into the group to see it. (This will be posted in October, if your class chooses to create one.)

  • How do I join my classroom’s Google group and get access to the calendars and directories?

    Posted by:
    1. Sign in/up for Google Docs.  You do not need a gmail email address (although it makes it easier), you can sign up for a Google Account with any email. This is highly recommended but only necessary to see directories and shared material other than calendar.
    2. Join your classroom Google group. Make sure to use the same email address that you used to sign up for Google Docs. You can either:
      1. Click on the link of the invitation you will receive from your room rep.
      2. Follow the link from your teacher’s Class Page, and request access. You will have to wait for approval from the room rep, please identify yourself when you request access.
