Think of Google Classroom (GC) as your child's digital link to learning. 

Teachers use GC to share assignments, homework, newsletters, and much more with students and parents. It also allows for students to communicate with teachers and each other on a daily basis. Teachers will post the daily assignments each school day on GC and take daily attendance.
