Google Classroom allows you to receive email summaries of your child's upcoming assignments, exams, and class requirements. To begin, email your child's teacher(s) to request an invitation. You will then receive notification via email and can elect to receive email summaries on a daily or weekly basis.
Google Classroom's purpose is to facilitate paperless communication between teachers and students and streamline educational workflow. Classroom allows teachers to create classes, post assignments, organize folders, and view work in real-time. At Haldane, Google Classroom is a vital tool for your child to stay on top of deadlines and organize class and homework.
PowerSchool allows you to view your child's grades, assignment progress, and attendance. You may elect to receive email summaries or view your child's dashboard through the PowerSchool app or website.

The Getting Started section of the PowerSchool website provides an overview of how to access the information.
