Ms. Gruber

Welcome to my class, I look forward to our journey!

  • I have created Google Classrooms where I will be posting all classroom resources, practice quizzes, have the students collaborate/work through formative assessment and post resources. Your child will be provided with the code to join this group. I will have a shared Google folder where I will post the electronic versions of the handouts, rubrics and class resources. Your child may keep a copy of these electronic notes for their personal use. You are invited to subscribe to receive updates about assignments & due dates. (by providing me with your email information so I can invite you to the Google Classroom)
  • We tend to begin with skill building assignments and then progress in depth, difficulty and expectation throughout the semester. This is also the trend from the junior grades through the senior grades.
  • I encourage both students and parents to subscribe to the Integrated Arts Program social media platforms. (Facebook, Instagram, youTube). Also, if you are a member of the IAP, and you have not yet subscribed to the WRIAPPA (IAP parent’s council) mailing list, please email eastwoodarts@gmail.com to help stay informed.
  • If you would like to get in touch with me, the best bet is email.

How to stay informed:

Remind:
If you choose, I will communicate with you using a system called Remind.com. It will enable me to text or email you with updates about upcoming due dates and assignments.

The set up is simple. Choose whether you would like a text or an email update. Your son/daughter can confirm the code for you (which is also posted on the specific class page links).

1. To receive messages via text, text your child’s code to (226)241-9468. You can opt-out of messages at anytime by replying, ‘unsubscribe @rmd.at/[thecoursecode]’.

Google Apps For Education: 
I have created a Google Classroom that I will be using with the students to post resources, formative assessment like practice quizzes and post some assignments. Your child will receive to code to log in through their googleapps account. All assignments, resources, rubrics and study materials are posted. If your child is absent, encourage them to check it to stay up to date.

Instructions to log in to Google:
First time log in (or after a student has changed their password):

  • search google.wrdsb.ca in the top url box.
  • log in using your googleapps account (username@wrdsb.ca)
  • password: school password

On a chromebook (you must have previously logged in on a networked computer to activate your account):

  • log in using your googleapps account (username@wrdsb.ca)
  • password: school password
