Welcome To Mr. Allen's Homepage
Hello, students and parents. This page will contain all the information needed to get connected to my classes. I use Google Classroom for all my class assignments, documents and class specific announcements, but I also use Remind for announcements and as a way to connect with me in a text forum. All students will be connected to my Google Classroom and Remind.
In the left menu, there are links to each class page that has the Google Classroom and Remind codes for students to enter their specific class as well as the syllabus. Sorry parents, you must have an owassops.org email address to access the Google Classroom. Parents are able to receive an overview email of assignments and announcements that I post to Google Classroom. If you would like the overview email, please email me with your student's name and hour they have my class and I will add your email address. You will receive an email inviting you to Google Classroom. Once you receive the invite, you can set up your notifications for every time I post an assignment, or you can just have the weekly summary. It's your choice. You are also welcome and encouraged to join Remind as I use this platform for timely reminders, like pending tests or bonus opportunities.
Furniture Donations for Classroom
I am working towards changing my classroom from traditional rows of desks to a more modern, flexible, comfortable style of classroom which numerous studies have shown enhance student literacy and learning. If you have a gaming chair, love seat, comfy chair, floor pillows, or anything that you would prefer to sit on instead of a school desk and would like to donate to the classroom, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students will definitely appreciate it.
If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions, or donations please email me.
Thank you very much.
