Welcome to 3rd-4th Grades Summer!
I am so excited to have all of your children in our classes next year! Here is everyone’s name. You will see some familiar ones and some new ones. I know your child will be welcoming to all.
We look forward to checking in with you over the summer. We will continue to use ParentSquare throughout the summer, so please be sure to check in frequently for both group and whole school communications. It might be good to turn your notifications back on or off of digest so you don't miss anything. You also can access your child's class parent communication information in the FACTS school directory.
One of the easiest ways we will get to share with each other is through Google Classroom. We have set up a 3rd-4th Summer Google Classroom for students to share work and ideas. We also have opened up the classroom blog there (main Google Stream) and will provide optional activities to do and share with each other.
Go to classroom.google.com (same as your Mackintosh gmail.com account)
