Welcome Parents and Students!

Here is where you can find announcements and that I send home as well as resources that you and your child may need. I will be updating this newsletter several times a month with my "News from Ms. Shapiro" so please bookmark this site to locate easily.


Feel free to reach out at any time if you have any questions! You can always email me at sshapiro@austinisd.org or send a text or call me at (512) 827-8572.


I look forward to working with you and your child this year! Thank you so much for partnering with me to help meet the needs of your child!

Family App for Seesaw

Unlike last year, students will not be completing work at home in Seesaw. However, I would love to connect family members to their child's Seesaw journal so that you can see what we are working on in class. We will also enable the class blog feature for special projects and family projects. Each child can link up to 10 family members. In the past I have had grandparents and other family members reach out to tell me how much they appreciate being able to see what their grandchild/child is working on and comment on their work.


In order to sign up, please download the Seesaw Family App from the App Store and scan the code I sent home. Please let me know if you need another copy. If you connected with your child's journal last year, you should automatically be connected this year.

Parent Links inside BLEND

Inside my Homeroom course I also added a section on Parent Resources. These will be the black buttons. Here you can find links to the school website, class calendar, schedule, resources, and much more!
