    What Google Apps Should I Have on my Phone?
    Today's technology allows for ease of use and the opportunity to streamline classroom experiences. It will not be expected that students download the following apps, but it should be understood that doing so could make some of our interactions seamless in a way that could prove beneficial. 
    All of these are available on any iPhone or Andriod OS. They are free to download and will REQUIRE students to use their SCHOOL PROVIDED EMAIL to effectively access information.
    Please look for:
    Google Classroom
    Google Drive (Students will create class-specific folders and save work here).
    Google Docs (It is NOT recommended that students type essays or academic journals on their phones, but they might need access to those documents).

    CELL PHONE POLICY - All cell phones should be turned off while in the classroom. If a student needs access to their phone for academic reasons they will be notified of when and to what extent. Please encourage responsible and appropriate cell phone use while in an academic setting. Thank you.

    FOR PARENTS ONLY: Google Classroom.  If you have an email address you will be invited to Google Classroom.  Once you have accepted our invitation you will have access to:

    * Rubrics and Models for assessments and student projects
    * A Google Calendar that reminds students of due dates and deadlines
