  • Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! Above is a quick introduction from me to my students. Below, you'll find a recap of communication tools available to us during distance learning. I look forward to working with you!

Teams Information
  • The above video is Principal Wisely's tutorial for setting up your Student AUSD account for the first time. Your Student AUSD account provides you free access to all the Microsoft Office apps, including Word for writing, PowerPoint for making presentations, and Outlook for sending your teachers emails. 


    Here is our district's resource on setting up your AUSD Student Account: 



    Distance Learning: Microsoft Teams

    I encourage you to sign into MyLocker at the start of every school day. From MyLocker, you'll be able to access all the other programs we'll be using for distance learning.

    To sign into Microsoft Office products, you will need to use the email address form of your Student AUSD Account: [studentID] -- This will only work once you follow the directions to set up your Student AUSD Account.

    One of the Microsoft Office tools you will have access to is called Microsoft Teams.

    In Teams, you'll be able to view your assignments, see your assignment grades and detailed feedback, and access more resources all inside one central app.

    The video below shows how to view assignments, submit assignments, and view grades and feedback in Teams:
