IMPORTANT (3rd-6th grades): To TYPE, use the blue TYPING.COM icon to the right or click the link under ‘Typing’ on the menu above and sign in using GOOGLE.  This makes sure that your typing progress will be seen and counted correctly.  The typing icon in the PORTAL is currently NOT working properly (it connects with Clever-and that won’t work for us currently).

To learn about getting started on Chromebooks & the Portal, watch the video below. IGNORE the part about ZOOM meetings-it is old information.
