Hello Sayles School artists 🎨,

I hope you and your families are doing well.

We have transitioning from enrichment activities (see and click blue bar on the top of this page if you are looking for extra activities) to distance learning (learning from home). I have set up our Google Art Classrooms and have been posting weekly assignments in the following order since Monday, March 30th:

Mondays - Kdg. Google Classroom code: 2d33kei

Tuesdays - 1st/2nd Google Classroom code: l5whu2g

Wednesdays - 3rd/4th - Google Classroom code: myclnap

Thursdays - 5th/6th - Google Classroom code: yyn7vza

Fridays - 7th/8th - Google Classroom code: hs67tzk

To access our Google Art Classrooms K, 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8, to view weekly assignments, updates, and to communicate, please click on this link https://classroom.google.com/h and use the classroom code listed with the weekly assignment posting days above.

How to share your work with me:

Please take/have an adult take a picture or scan your art work and send it to me - see below.

How to submit pictures to Goggle Classroom:

When doing non digital work students can take pictures using the webcam or a mobile device to add pictures to Google Slides. From mobile students click on “Add attachment” and can choose “New Slides” from the list of options. From a Chromebook or laptop, students click on the “Create” button and choose “Slides".

With parent permission you may want to watch the following YouTube tutorial:

While I am planning, writing lesson plans, crediting incoming student work, communicating through our Google Art Classrooms and email, and sharing with colleagues throughout the day, my official 'office hours' are from 9:30 - 11:30 am from Mon. - Fri. At that time I am watching my incoming emails at ileclair@spraguek12.org in order to get right back to you. If you have any questions or would like to share your artwork with me - I am here to help and advise.

Wishing you health and happiness, have fun and keep creating 🎨🎨🎨,

Dr. Le Clair

If you experience problems getting into Google Classroom:

Dear Parents,

Help for Borrowing Chromebooks April 2, 2020

As of this morning (4/2/20), the First and Second grade students now have Sayles School Google accounts that they can use to login to Chromebooks from the school. These accounts can also be used to log into Google Classroom and other Educational apps that are compatible with Google’s Educational Suite.

If Chromebooks are new to you, just open it up and push the power button in the upper right corner. It will take a few seconds to start up. Look for your child’s name in the list of students who have already signed into the Chromebook you have. If their name is in the list, click on the name and enter their password. If their name is not in the list, click on the Add Person button at the bottom of the screen. Enter your child’s username as instructed below and then their password. Click through the prompts to agree to the licensing and you are all set!

For all students in grades 1 through 8, your username is the year of your graduation from 8th grade – i.e. if your child is in 8th grade now, the first two digits of their username will be 20. If they are in the 5th grade, the first two digits will be 23. The rest of their username is their first initial followed by their last name. To complete the username everyone uses “@spraguek12.org” (sans quotes) after their last name.

The password for all first and second grade accounts is “Dogbone20” (sans quotes). This is case sensitive so the “D” must be entered in UPPERCASE. Sorry for the length but the password has to meet certain complexity requirements.

For Pre-K and K students, there is a single shared user account that you can use to log them into the Chromebooks or any online application requiring a Google account. The username is DLEARNER@SPRAGUEK12 (uppercase is for ease of reading). The password for this account is also Dogbone20 (this is case sensitive).

If your child cannot remember their password, you can e-mail me directly at techsupport@spraguek12.org or call me at the school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 860-822-8264 x141. I am generally here from about 8:45 to 3:45.

If you have any other Sayles School technology concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me for those as well.

Best regards and stay healthy!
