  1. Always remember your Username and Password

    1. If you do NOT have an email, please let me know ASAP

      1. EMAIL should be first initial + last name +

      2. Example: John Doe’s email is

  2. If you CANNOT remember your email PASSWORD, please

    1. Try it first - maybe you put a capital letter in there

    2. Try it again

    3. Let me know

  3. Remember your Chromebook Number, because that’s your Device for the 2017-2018 school year.

  4. Check your emails on a regular basis

    1. You’ll never know from who or when an email is coming your way

    2. Remember that you CAN connect your School Account to your personal electronic devices, because it is run by GMAIL (GOOGLE).

Welcome to your CCS Makerspace. It’s an absolute pleasure to have met your class, and truly look forward to working with each and every one of you. Please remember these four (4) rules as we embark on this adventurous ride together filled with educational-fun, imagination and inspiration: In this class...

  • We ALL have the right to learn. NO ONE has the right to interrupt or waste OUR time.

  • We ALL have the right to be ourselves. NO ONE has the right to laugh at us or hurt our feelings.

  • We ALL have the right to hear and be heard. NO ONE has the right to keep us from being heard when it is our turn to speak.

  • We ALL have the right to be safe, and to have our belongings be safe. NO ONE has the right to make us feel afraid, or to damage or take our belongings.
