** PLEASE NOTE: If you are checking Powerschool Gradebook from your phone, you may not see the many assignments I will post this year. So if you are checking from a phone and don't see them, please try from a laptop 

Also, if you are trying to use Google Classroom and are having trouble logging in with the codes listed at the bottom of this page, it is likely because you are not signing in with the student's gnspes account. If you are a parent trying to sign in with a regular gmail account let's say, then a message will come up that the code is invalid. It is not invalid - you just need to get your son or daughter's gnspes account info from him/her. I hope this helps with any glitches you may be experiencing:)
