SchoolNotes


SchoolNotes (http://new.schoolnotes.com) is a website that I use to post homework for the week, announcements, and updates.  Since I've put in most of my parents' email addresses, when I update the page, it'll send an email saying the page has been updates.

You can unsubscribe at any time if you feel like receiving an email each day is too much.  Then, you can choose to go to the page at any time.  You don't have to subscribe to the page in order to visit it.

The kids can even visit the website.  Try it.

Remind (Text Messaging)

The 6th Grade Team uses Remind (www.remind.com) as a way to send out quick messages.  These messages mainly go out as text messages, but can go out as an email. Standard text messaging fees apply.

To sign up, text:
@gray1617 
to 
(442) 333-7602

There is a chat feature; however, we are asking that you are mindful when you're sending messages to the team.  Parents have sent messages at 6:00 a.m. so we had to set office hours.  When you send messages, they come through as a text message for the teachers as well.

There is an app on iOS.  I'm not sure about Android.

You can unsubscribe at any time.  We generally send a message once a week or so.

Math and Science Books

The Math and Science Books are both online.  Just go to Clever and sign in with Active Directory.  That means sign in with the school's username and password. The Health Book is not online.

Math - Big Ideas Learning
Science - McGraw Hill Education

School Notes

School Notes is where Homework will be posted.  It also has announcements, updates, textbook information, deadlines, and dates.  Mainly, it's where you can find that day's homework.

When I get your email, I will add your preferred email to the list serve.  When School Notes is updated, it'll send you an email stating the site has been updated.  You can unsubscribe at any time.

You can sign yourself up by visiting:


and click on the page(s) you would like to receive notifications. 

SchoolNotes will generally be updated daily, Monday-Friday.  We will try our hardest not to post more than once each day so we don't flood your email accounts.

Feel free to visit the School Notes page whenever you choose.  The students can visit the page too.
