Organization is key in Middle School!

Let's get ORGANIZED! We know some students are struggling to keep up with classes, turning in assignment, due dates, and multitude of "clicks" required for online learning. Here are some helpful hints from your teachers:

  • The "tasks" and "keep" function of Google have been opened for middle schoolers.

  • Use an agenda--Google Calendar, sheet of paper, sticky notes, notebooks...anything you need to write down your assignments and due dates!

    • Your personal Google Calendar will show all assignments too!

  • EVERYTHING is in Google Classroom! Check there first :)

    • Use the To-Do list on Google classroom to check your work

    • Use the "Find" function (hold down the Control button (Ctrl) and press F) to find a missing assignment. Most are marked by day or week

Off to a great start!

Middle School is off to a GREAT start this year! Thank you for all the family support to make online learning possible at home!

Please continue to check your student's Google Classroom regularly for work completion. Grades will be added to Infinite Campus regularly.

Use the To Do list in Google Classroom to check for missing assignments.
