Don't forget new logins have been created for all FHSD students & staff to use with Discovery Education! This means you can now easily create classes and make assignments directly in DE or link your assignments to your Google Classroom. DE is a wonderful resource that is often overlooked. If you are interested in using it in your classroom and need assistance getting started, contact Laura Long.
