Organizing Your Family with Free Tools from Google


You know organizational skills are important to teach and model for your children, and more importantly, they can help you organize your family schedule and needs.

Your child may already be using Google Classroom at school, now you can learn how to guide them in scheduling, organizing, and notetaking for future success.


Please come with a Google account email address and password that you will use actively - if you know the Google email addresses of family members that will help also! If you have a laptop or tablet, please bring it with you.
