## Important Sites to Check!

There are a few sites that we mentioned at the beginning of the year that parents can access to view student progress, assignments, etc. The links to the sites and information can be found on our Google Classroom website. The instructions for finding the website are listed below. The directions should work the same for 8th grade, just use a different code for the classroom.

Just a reminder! This is the email to use for Google Access:

Example Student:

Ashlee Glasco

1. Open the Google Chrome browser (Any browser will work, but Chrome is the best.)

5. Click +

6. Click Join class

7. Enter the code i8jp31in the box and click Join. The code will be h4bdbzs for 8th grade.

8. The classroom opens. Look at the latest announcements for class updates.

If you are unable to log in, the likely cause is a password that does not meet requirements; the password needs to contain 8-16 characters, and at least 1 of EACH- capital letter, lowercase letter, number AND symbol; symbols that work consistently are * ! \$

A password can only be changed at school.

Google Classroom codes are available from individual teachers. Not all teachers are utilizing Google Classroom.

## Something NEW!

During this semester, the students are beginning to prepare for the upcoming STAAR assessments that will be administered the end of March. The students are going to be learning at a quick pace, and will need to be focused and organized throughout the semester. To help with this task, students are going to be keeping folders of their homework and assignments throughout the semester. The folders will include:

• Daily Homework/Test Log
• Current and Past homework assignments
