This Week at Illinois School
Greetings Illinois School Families,
As we embark on a new adventure to our online environment, we welcome you to experience Google Classroom and Google Meet. Beginning Tuesday, March 31st, students will need access to technology to join their Google Classroom and Meet environments. If you have limited access to technology and you have gaming consoles such as PS4 and/or Xbox One with online access, you can utilize those consoles to log into Google Classroom. Click on E-Learning Partnership under Quick Links to see how you can change your gaming console into a “learning” console.
Teachers will provide information such as email addresses, passwords and/or classroom codes to enter in their classroom in ClassDojo. Students in grades fourth through eighth will already have prior knowledge interacting with Google Classroom so this will be an easy transition to an E-Learning Partnership.
Training tools for accessing Google Classroom will be provided to you in the video above. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send a message in ClassDojo, email teachers, and/or email me, Principal Clay, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can do this together for “Excellence is the Expectation for Every Child Every Day!
