There’s a new “Classroom” at Synergy School

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 9.19.18 PMThis school year we’re excited to roll out a new way to connect students and teachers: Say hello to Google’s Classroom.

This portal allows middle school teachers to post homework assignments and announce tests and other class deadlines in one place for each class. Math, History, Language Arts, Spanish, and Science each have a digital classroom set up to make it easier for students (and parents) to keep track of class work.

Each of our 68 middle school students has a new e-mail using the domain @synergystudents.org. They will need to log on through this e-mail online via gmail.com. From there they will see all their classes and be able to download homework documents and turn in completed work.

Google Classroom is part of the Google Apps for Education (GAFE) that Synergy teachers & staff have been using for several years. This new edition is also a free add on to GAFE.

FYI: K-12 Google Apps for Education users do not see ads when they use Google Search and are signed in to their Apps for Education accounts. More info: http://www.google.com/edu/trust/

If you have any questions check in with our Middle School teachers or contact Russ Curtis: russ@synergyschool.org.
