Good Evening, parents!
As many of you heard today at 7th grade orientation we are ready and willing to support you in any way we can! We are so excited to be back in the building and can not wait for your children to join us when it is safe.
The tech team here at GMHS have made some instructional videos to help you get familiar with Schoology, Google, and your iPads. These videos can be found on Principal Richard’s blog as well as the GMHS website. The videos are not intended to teach you everything but to get you started. We will support your child remotely throughout the beginning of school learning and nativagating Schoology if it is new to them.
Next Tuesday, September 15th at 10:00am the tech team will be going live to answer all your Schoology related questions via Zoom. If you can not attend this live session do not worry, it will be recorded and posted for you to view later in those two locations. If you have any Schoology related question(s) please submit them here before Monday evening so we can prepare accordingly.
Here is the Zoom link for next Tuesday: Join Zoom Meetinghttps://zoom.us/j/97305583292?pwd=V0ZsemZLdElFeW90SzU0YVZMVGVxdz09

For those students who are bringing their own devices to school: If you would like to purchase the GPS Self Service app (which is the Georgetown App store) please visit this link. GPS Self Service is $27 for 3 years. It will give you access to all paid and free apps required by your teachers throughout those 3 years. If you plan on purchasing your own apps please be on the lookout from individual teachers as to what they will need. Notability is one app that is a $10 paid app through Apple’s app store.
Also, regarding parent access to their child’s Schoology accounts. You will be receiving another email on that within the next week regarding your parent access to Schoology. Please be on the lookout!
As always we are here and happy to help! Please reach out if you have any questions regarding technology here at GMHS.
From one parent to another, I hope everyone has a wonderful start to this new and adventurous school year! Take lots of deep breaths, stay safe and please reach out if I can help in any way.
All the best,Liz Marchetti
