Congratulations, to five very talented 6th Graders. Hadley Mortenson, Sarah Wells, Ellie Harman, Blaine Ricard, and Julio Gomez, will represent GMS as part of the 2016-2017 Lexington One Children’s Honor Choir.
Are you having trouble accessing the Schoology App at home? Many students seem to be having difficulty using the Schoology App
on their home internet, although everything works perfectly at school. The
attached Power Point contains directions that will help you remedy this
issue! The “fix” that is presented in the Power Point will have to be
repeated each afternoon when you arrive home and change form Lex1Wifi to
your home internet source. However, it is very quick and easy!!
As part of Lexington County School District One’s commitment to providing 21st century learning tools for our teachers and students, we have begun using Schoology© as our district learning management system in grades 6–12. In fact, Schoology© will replace Edmodo as our learning management system in grades 6–12. This transition will take place during the first semester of this academic year.
Schoology© is a dynamic platform that allows teachers and students to work digitally and communicate with each other on both computers and mobile devices. With Schoology©, students can submit homework assignments, participate in interactive discussions, receive announcements and feedback, take assessments and collaborate with their peers. Teachers will monitor student progress and activity to ensure a safe, secure and controlled environment. Parents will also have access to the system and be able to view teacher and student activity.
Parent access codes will be distributed at the GMS Open House on August 26. Please visit the following link for instructions to create your parent account and/or watch the tutorial video that is attached.
