Each homeroom teacher will be sending you log in information for google classroom. Each class your scholar has will have a different class code for each of their teachers. Each teacher will be sending you their class code this week so we are set and ready for next week! :) 
 
Mrs. Parr and I have been recording videos to quickly show you how google classroom works and how it is set up. We hope you find those videos helpful!
