How To Make Logging In to Websites Easier With CLEVER!

Our district uses a single sign-on platform called Clever to make it easier for students (and staff) to login to apps and sites that are frequently used.

For students:

1. Go to https://clever.com/in/mustang

2. Username: lunch number@mustangps.org (ex. 12345@mustangps.org)

3. Password: Google password (same as what you use to log in on a Chromebook)

Here students should be able to access apps and sites like Flocabulary, MyOn, and Lexia without having to log in again.

ELA- Mrs. Fruit

About me:

Welcome to team 5 East! I am so excited to see what the year has in store! My name is Morgan Fruit. I have recently gotten married so you might see my maiden name on your students schedule- Kasserman. This is my fourth year teaching. I previously taught at Canyon Ridge and moved to Meadow Brook when it opened in 2018. I graduated from UCO with my teaching degree in elementary education.

Welcome to the new ELA!

Don't forget- learning plans have been sent out and available:

  • Posted to the District Website
  • Posted on the doors of each school building (the following week’s copies will be posted over the weekend, no later than noon on Sunday)
  • Sent out by the principal via email
  • Teachers will work to make sure you get a copy if these other options don't work

Each Monday, we will post assignments, activities, and journal prompts on Google Classroom for students to work on. All of these activities are completely optional, but it would be great review for students- and I would love to read their journal entries! The best thing your student can be doing is reading daily- whether it's a newspaper, a library book, listening to an ebook, or even reading the captions on tv- and getting on Study Island!

Google Classroom Login Instructions for ELA

Google Classroom login:

students need to log in to Google first. username: lunch#@mustangps.org password: whatever the student uses to log in to their Chromebooks at school.

Students can still be independently reading at home using these two options:

-The school's library system by using the Sora app. You can download the Sora app, search Meadow Brook Intermediate, and use their school lunch number for the username and their Chromebook password as the password to log in. Just like the school library, the book will be checked out to the student to read on any device with the app for two weeks and it will automatically check itself back in!

- MyON I have attached a pdf with directions that make it simple on how to access these books!


That was a lot of information! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at kassermanm@mustangps.org or you can send me a message on Remind!
