Parents,
We are so excited to begin using Microsoft OneNote in our ELA classes! OneNote allows students to access and edit their ELA work from their online ELA binder. Today, your child will be bringing home their log in information on colored paper. Please keep this copy AT HOME for your use. You can also access this information on my teacher page found on the District website. If you have any additional questions, please let me know!
Dear Parents/Guardians,

Zearn Class Code: AH8W9Y
Newsela Class Code ZGR3EK
To access OneNote from home:
Go to office.com
log in is 21first initial last name@ fsd157c,org
For example 21sbecker@fsd157c.org
Password is your 500number(just like at school)
Invitation Reminder: We never want to have a child feel left out or have their feelings hurt by not receiving an invitation to a party. Even as adults, we know the emotional hurt from being excluded. This is why we highly discourage the passing out of invitations at school. The only exception is if you are inviting the whole class and the invitations are distributed by your child’s teacher. Invitations are never to be distributed by a student or parent. Thank you for your cooperation.
