Using Google Classroom

Remember that the Classroom is an online extension of the real class and you should treat it as such. Do not say anything on it that you would not say in your teacher’s presence. Keep it clean, respectful and exciting.

If you have any questions about the classroom, you can either go to your teacher or follow the following link:

Have fun learning!
