Google Sites and Google Classroom

Each grade level/class will use Google Sites as a virtual learning hub. The website will house daily lesson plans, resources, and access to teacher communication (depending on the grade level). While Google Sites is being used as the main hub for information, each teacher’s Google Classroom will be the avenue for posting and turning in assignments. Join us as we explore Google Sites and Google Classroom features/navigation.
