Printers Fixed!

This district has finally rolled out a fix for our printer issues this year. Students should now be able to print from a desktop or laptop. It should also default to the nearest printer. If you find this is not accurate, please write a work order or let me know!

Google Tips

Add a Star to Files & Folders

Google Classroom Update!

Help a Student Out!

PLEASE use ONLY PDFs or all Google (Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms) in Google Classroom. Word, Excel, PowerPoint will not allow students real-time collaboration or typing onto the sheet either! You would be surprised how many students we have to do not even have Microsoft at home.
