  • Google Classroom Codes

    Posted by Catherine Stone on 8/16/2020 6:00:00 AM

    Good morning,

    We found out that many of our students were only given one code to join our class.  Some of you noticed that there were 2 choices if you went to Google Classroom...one for VA and one for Non-VA.  If you joined the wrong class I will place you in the correct section today.

    I will be meeting with my Remote Learning students on Monday and Wednesday this week and my Virtual Academy students on Tuesday and Thursday.

    Below are the times for these classes by grade level:

    8th grade: 9:40-10:10

    6th grade: 11:40-12:10

    7th grade: 1:30-2:00

    I look forward to meeting new faces and reconnecting with returning students.  Enjoy the rest of yor weekend and I'll see you tomorrow!
