Welcome back to another amazing year at Barton Chapel!
HELPFUL HINTS TO START THE YEAR:
Please also make sure your scholar can log into their Launchpad. If they are having difficulty please contact me so I can assist.
Before your scholar starts school this year, whether for online or face-to-face instruction, please familiarize yourselves with Canvas, which is Richmond counties new learning management system.
you ask...What is Canvas?
"Canvas LMS is an open and reliable web-based software that allows institutions to manage digital learning, educators to create and present online learning materials and assess student learning, and students to engage in courses and receive feedback about skill development and learning achievement."
Instructions for finding information on Canvas:
On the district website (rcboe.org), they have provided step by step tutorials to walk both the student and parents through Canvas. If you go to the rcboe.org website, under the students tab there is a link for Canvas LMS Introduction. Please follow the links and complete the steps to guide your understanding of our new online platform.
I have also included the links for the information:
Please watch the following video that will introduce you to Canvas- Canvas Intro
The following is the module that will help explain how Canvas will work in our classroom. Our students will now receive and engage in lessons online and also complete assignments, projects, and assessments from Canvas.
Parents- I higly encourage you to follow the steps to sign up for your Canvas Parent account and load the app on your phone. This way you can monitor what assignments (projects, presentations, quizzes, homework) your scholar has due, which assignments(projects, presentations, quizzes, homework) have been turned in, and the grades received on those assignments. You will also be able to contact me easily through the Canvas portal and recieve any announcements that I send out to the class.
