Generation Texas Week: November 17th-21st

As part of Generations Texas week we would like to highlight the families at Reagan Elementary by having you work on a project together - sharing your career and post-secondary education as well as your child's future career and higher education plans.

Here are the steps for completing the project:​

  1. You will have to sign-in to Google in order to save the copy of the project to your Google Drive. If you do not have a Google account you can use your child's Google login* (below).
  2. Once you have signed in to Google, go to: http://goo.gl/Utsndj and click File > Make a copy
  3. Insert a picture of yourself at work. Move and re-size as needed to fit within the frame.​
  4. Insert a picture of your child that represents the job they’d like to have in the future.
  5. Complete the questions in the text fields - don't forget to include your career and your child's future career under each picture.
  6. Once the project is complete, click​ the Share button at the top right side of the screen, enter: deanna.martin@leanderisd.org in the email address field, and click Share.​

Projects received by 8am Wednesday morning will be on display (projected) in the cafeteria during our Thanksgiving luncheon on November 20th.

*student google login is: legal first name, dot, legal last name, last two digits of their student ID, @k12.leanderisd.org and the password is their birthdate in yyyymmdd format (ex. johnathan.smith85@k12.leanderisd.org / 20090316)
