NEWS AND EVENTS
Dear GIS Parents,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year, which I can assure you will be a unique one, Insha’Allah. While Covid makes it characteristically different, the uniqueness will come from the connections that our teachers and students will build and the learning that will take place. Who could have thought that children as old as 6 years old will become experts in Google Classroom, or that a drive-through goodbye will be more meaningful than an in-class one. Yet, Alhamdulillah, we achieved all that and more, and ended the last school year on a strong note. And now, we invite you to another year’s journey of academic, spiritual, and social-emotional growth.
In preparation for the school year, here is some logistical information in one table for your convenience:
Welcome Back Parade
https://granadaonlinebookstore.miiduu.com (Limited textbooks available)
5th-9th Grade: Art Supply List
Please refer to the calendar for major holidays and events throughout the year
Student Google Accounts
Find your child’s log in:
GIS students are issued Google accounts to log in to Zoom and to access online resources. When you change the password, PLEASE WRITE IT DOWN immediately. Requests for forgotten passwords take up a lot of time, and we’d appreciate your help in this regard.
Please follow these guidelines on how to connect to ZOOM.
Please use this link to get started with Google Classroom.
Borrow a Chromebook
Step1: Fill out this form: Request a Chromebook
Step 2: Pay your deposit on Curacubby via this link: Curacubby Payments 101
Returning Parents: Please use “forgotten password” to rest your password if you are unable to login
New Parents: In the coming weeks, new parents will be receiving login information to access your child’s account.
Additional Online Resources
Homeroom or Subject Teachers will provide logins for any curriculum related online resources (ThinkCentral, GoMath, Pearson etc) in the coming weeks.
Please refer to the information above or go to this Google folder with all of the above mentioned information in one place. Throughout the year, we may add more relevant information in this folder for easy access.
We appreciate your continued support and are looking forward to another memorable year insha’Allah.
