Test Friday, September 27th

I wanted to reach out to you regarding our unit 2 exam over physical properties being moved from October 3rd to September 27th.  The district has made some changes to the curriculum and split up unit 2 and 3 which is why it is in the student's best interest to move up the testing date.  Please make sure that your child is studying his or her INB and using Google Classroom resources to prepare for our test.  Also, please make sure you are checking Home Access Center for grades.  If you are unable to log in, please contact Karen Burns, our registrar. Students must log in to Google Classroom with their school account.  I have posted a video of how to access the Google Classroom in case you need assistance.  If you have accepted an invite to Google Classroom as a parent, you must sign in using your child's school account.
