Updates for Our Families

Happy Wednesday!

Good Evening Families,

Happy Wednesday! We have only a few items to bring to your attention this evening.

Savvas Realize K-8

Savvas Realize is the program we are using for our curriculum and instruction. Students enrolled in the academy have access to a full suite digital license for every core subject in this program and the license includes access to two versions of their textbooks – an eBook and Interactive Digital Textbook.

How do you access these features?

Teachers will post assignments in Google Classroom that are linked to the student’s Realize account. By clicking on the assignment in Google Classroom and the link to Realize in Google Classroom, students will be taken directly to the task. There is no separate log on information or invitation that you need in order to access this content. Your child only needs to be enrolled in Google Classroom and access Realize by following the link in their assignments.

Have a Blessed Evening!
