January 6, 2015
Dear Parents and Guardians,
On behalf of the entire staff at Athenian Academy I would like to wish you a Happy New Year. I hope that 2015 will be a wonderful year for you and your family.
In an effort to improve communication with you and bring new technology requirements to our students, we are implementing a new single sign on through Schoology. On this site you will be able to communicate with your child’s teachers, view grades, view upcoming assignments and view upcoming events. This one sign on program will eliminate the need to go to individual teacher websites and engrade. All necessary information will be found with your single login.
In addition, students in the older grades, 2nd and up, will have assignments to complete through Schoology to meet the new technology requirements of the New Florida Standards. Families without computers at home will be able to use the computer lab before school each day beginning on January 12th from 7:30 – 8:00 each day. Parents are also welcome during this time to login and view student grades and assignments.
On Monday, January 12th an information and training session will be held for parents after the PTO meeting. Please plan on attending and learning how to access your child’s information. Students will receive a copy of this form and attached to it will be your child’s login information so that you can sign on and begin to look around. Teachers have been trained on using Schoology and will begin to add more information in the coming weeks as they become more familiar with the program.
I encourage you to login and play around with the program. If you use social media, in specific, Facebook, the format will be very familiar to you. You can use the link on the top left of our site to access Schoology, simply click on the Schoology logo next to the Facebook and Twitter icons!
Please note that effective for the third quarter, we will no longer send home a paper progress report and report card. All information on these reports will be found for parents in Schoology. If you do not have access to a computer at home, you are welcome each morning between 7:30 and 8:00 to use the computer lab in the 100 building.
Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions regarding Schoology. I look forward to seeing you on January 12th if you are interested in further training.
