Learn At Home Week 3

Video Conferencing

On Wednesday April 22nd at 3pm, we will try out our first video conference. This is purely voluntary and a chance for classmates to reconnect and say hi. It will only last for 10 to 15 minutes. We will be using Google Meets/Hangouts. If you are using a mobile device or tablet, students will need to download the Google Meets/Hangouts from the app store. If using a computer, the preferred browser is Google Chrome.

Shortly before 3pm, there will be a link on the banner in Google Classroom (where it says our class name and there is an emoji of me) that will invite students to join our hangout.

I will have more specific instructions on Wednesday but hopefully it will give students a chance to see their classmates and friends! Google Meets/Hangouts is a secure SCDSB approved method of video conferencing.

Maple Grove House Teams and Points!

Our Maple Grove House Teams have started up again! Every time a student wears their house colours (or house team shirts) when filming their Community Circle Flipgrid, they earn 10 points for their house teams! Current house team points are posted on map.scdsb.on.ca.

Pixton Class Photo

Our class comic photo is nearly complete! If your child hasn’t made their avatar in Pixton, please have them complete it at pixton.com as soon as convenient.

Best regards,

P. Johnson
