Welcome to Mrs. Gough's Teacher Site!
As of the 2019-2020 school year, all assignments and work due are posted in Google Classroom. Google Classroom is the ONLY app being used for assigning work in my classroom (other than posting it on my classroom whiteboard). To help you support your child in tracking assignments, please remember:
- Your child should only mark assignments as completed or turned in IF they have actually finished it.
- A student's Google Calendar app can be used to track assignments on a monthly calender. However, it will only show assignments IF they have their class calendars check-marked in the settings.
- I recommend your child use either a paper planner OR the myHomework app on their iPad for recording assignments and developing time management skills in planning out their work.
SeeSaw is a digital portfolio app we use in the classroom when I want students to share work with you, from reflecting on their learning, posting a photo of a work in progress, sharing moments from our activities in the classroom, setting goals, etc. SeeSaw will NOT be used for grading work or posting assignments. It is really just a tool for seeing snapshots of what's happening in the classroom from time to time.
The Aeries Portal is a tool for periodic viewing of your child's grades on various assignments. Please review the Aeries Parent Portal Expectations posted on the MVMS website and guidelines around communication if you have questions about the frequency with which grades will be updated.
