  • Hello all,

    Starting tomorrow we will be holding our class through Google Classrooms.  

    Go to www.classroom.google.com

    Please log into Google Classroom using your school account (sID#@gse.cusd80.com).   If you have not used it at all this year, your initial password will be 

    s + ID# + !   

    We as a chemistry departing will try to post all of the work for the upcoming week on Monday. This way you can work on it how your and your family’s schedule works best.

    You will not see anything posted until tomorrow morning when it was scheduled. The scheduled time that I will be online to help will be at 8:00 am and then again at 11:00 am each time for about an hour. If you are having any questions this would be the best time to contact me.

    The chance of this working out without a hitch are nearly zero, so please be patient, and please contact me if you are having any issues.
