Dear Parents,

This year every student in grades 3, 4 & 5 will be actively using a Google Classroom account for schoolwork.  The Google Classroom accounts are set up and controlled by PS 69K. We are a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) school meaning we have full control of the domain and all Google services therein (we can add & delete accounts, open & suspend services, etc).

We are using our GAFE accounts for a number of curriculum-specific reasons:

  • Digital literacy: Using Google Documents & Presentations to create & publish work

  • Digital citizenship: Lessons around what it means to “publish” on the web & the power of the digital word

  • Collaboration: Using Documents & Presentations in team settings, without actually sitting together

  • Writing across different mediums and for broad audiences: both Common Core standards

  • Many middle & high schools use Google Apps for every aspect of the school day, this will prepare PS 69K students for the world beyond our walls.

These accounts are addresses but have limitations such as:

  • There is no email.
  • Their “Inbox” if they are given one, is only accessible by Mr. Mullin & their classroom teacher and only exists for the purposes of sharing teacher-student information (assignments, feedback, etc).

To  access  student  accounts  from  anywhere:

Go to and enter the full username/email, including the accounts are to be used solely for instructional purposes.  

We reserve the right to revoke access & suspend accounts at any time, for any reason.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Ms. Fernandes or follow updates at

Please refer to the "Student Code of Conduct with Digital Tools & Google Accounts" for expectations of proper student use.
