A Message from Principal Cockerill

I love technology and have learned so much recently! This week I was recording video tutorials from my computer to help teachers learn to quickly navigate some of the resources we are using for distance learning. A 5th grade student create a shared google doc where we just typed back and forth with each other. Her 2nd grade sister joined in to the document and they taught me that there is actually a "chat" feature with any shared doc! Thanks girls! I attended a GJSHS ASB meeting through Google Hangout. We collaborate as a staff daily through Zoom meetings. It is important during this time that we all continue to learn and grow. #ownyourlearning #stayengaged

More than technology, I love being an educator. However, education is not a one-way street. The best part of being a Principal and being a Teacher is being with our students. I discovered quickly that I miss them ALL. Each staff member at Greenville Elementary and Greenville Jr./Sr. High School feels the same way. We understand the greater need for everyone's safety is the priority now. Please follow the advice of the governor and medical professionals. Practice social distancing protocols. Wash your hands for 20 seconds. Get lots of rest. Eat healthy foods. We want our students back in the classrooms as soon as it is safely possibly. #staysafe #stayhealthy

I know that you are flooded with information from so many sources. Aeries messages from me, teachers, and PUSD have been coming to you via text, email, and phone call. We want you to be informed and updated with information regarding distance learning, meal service, and school closure. #stayconnected

Google Calendar, Gmail, and Classroom, Oh My!

The focus of the 1:1 Laptop/Chromebook Program in PUSD is to prepare students for their futures in a world of digital technology and information. Every student has a gmail account. Our students are very familiar with this and use it to log into their devices. During this time of distance learning, students should be checking their google calendars, gmail (email), and google classroom DAILY. These are the primary ways that some teachers are communicating with students, sending, and collecting online work. It's very simple--just have your child log into his/her account and click on the icons like those pictured above.

If you have any questions or need support, please e-mail Jennifer Martin at or Tanya Timmins at
