Google Classroom

gc

All HCMS teachers will use Google Classroom. This is an online platform used to communicate with students as well as distribute and assess student work electronically. All teachers and students have access to this. Below are just some ways your child might use Google Classroom to learn online:

  • Reading a passage and answering questions.
  • Writing their response to a math question and uploading a picture to be graded.
  • Engaging in an online discussion by writing comments.
  • Taking part in a small or large group video-conference with their teacher.
  • Logging into Amplify Science for assignments.

Logging into Google Classroom 

All students have been assigned and should already be familiar with their Google ID. Students’ usernames are their first initial and full last name followed by @ms297.com. Student passwords are OSIS #’s. There may be exceptions for students who have the same last name as someone else. If you do not know your Google username, contact Mr. Parker at aparker16@schools.nyc.gov.

  1. Open Google Chrome and use the icon in the top right corner to log in with your @ms297.com username.
  2. Log in to Google Classroom. You can do this simply by typing “Google Classroom” in the search bar and clicking on the first search result. You can also select it from the Google apps on the top left of the screen.
  3. Teachers have already invited their students to their class. The first time you enter, simply click “Join.”

There should be a Google Classroom for ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, and P.E. 6th graders will have a class for Art, 7th graders for Music and 8th graders for Spanish. All students have also been invited to the HCMS Home Page Classroom. This will be used for Attendance and daily announcements.
