Welcome to the 2015-16 School Year!

Google Classroom – Login with your district Google account and join with the code: np6kmff

Welcome students and parents to the 2015-16 school year! Over the past few years this blog has served as a hub for information about weekly assignments, class content, and various other items.

Last year the Stratford School District began the process of moving its middle and high schools to the Google Apps for Education platform. This provides all secondary students and teachers with a district Google login, access to Gmail, Drive, and the suite of Google Apps, as well as access to Google Classroom.

As of this time the primary online resource for my classes will be Google Classroom. This blog will no longer be updated on a regular basis.

Remind text notifications are the best way for students and parents to keep up with the weekly goings on and assignments – sign up with the class code @mrvigs122
