New G Suite Apps

New G Suite Apps

December 4, 2017

 

Dear Parents and Guardians;

As you are aware we use G Suite for Education through a secure domain at Yellowknife Catholic Schools. G Suite for Education is a set of education productivity and learning  tools from Google including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Classroom, and more used by tens of millions of students and teachers around the world.

Students use their G Suite accounts to complete assignments, learn using new and exciting instructional tools, communicate with their teachers, sign into their Chromebooks, and learn 21st century and digital citizenship skills.

GSuite for Education applications provide opportunities for students to explore, share, create, and think critically about the content they are experiencing in their classes, and to become more aware of the wider global community.

We wish to make you aware that Yellowknife Catholic Schools will be opening additional GSuite for Education applications for instructional use with our students. New GSuite for Education applications include Google Earth, Google Maps, Blogger and other approved applications for instruction. Access to these additional applications will provide increased learning opportunities for our students. This letter is in addition to permission forms previously signed for use of standard GSuite for Education applications in the secure ycs.nt.ca domain.

If you have additional questions, or for more information regarding GSuite for Education please call your school principal or myself at any time. Thank you for your continued support of Yellowknife Catholic Schools’ vision for preparing our students for the future.

Sincerely,

Simone Gessler

Assistant Superintendent, Learning
