Welcome to Our Class Website!


Weekly Update 3/23/2020
Greetings Families!

I hope this weekly update finds everyone well and safe!  I am sure you have already received the message from me in regard to having a class meeting via Zoom.  I am hoping everyone can attend and participate.  This will just be a way for us to connect and see each other’s smiling face and share how everyone is doing.  As a Bennett teaching staff we held a virtual staff meeting this morning in this format and it was so nice to see everyone. 

Please continue to check our fourth-grade website as it has been updated today with lots of learning activities.  And will continue to be the main area for the fourth grade team to post learning experiences. Some activities have been posted on our google classroom and some have not just in case you see a repeat.  We have been asked as a staff to post on both platforms in case there are technical issues with accessing Google Classroom.

Recommended IXL skills to practice this week:

Math: T.17 and A.21

Reading: E.2 and BB.2


Directions for accessing Zoom:

  1. Check email for invitation from Ms. Baran
  2. Cut and paste meeting link into web browser
  3. It will prompt you to download or join meeting (found that using Chrome with Ava’s google account had restrictions so be mindful this may come up maybe try using internet explorer may be better way to access)
  4. Enter the password from invitation email.


Looking forward to seeing you all!

Ms. Baran 😊  

Greetings families!

I hope this finds everyone safe and well.  I am going to start this weekly update to lay out some steps on how we will strive to stay connected as teacher and families. 

The good news is that we have already launched our google classroom and students are familiar with program and navigating it.  I sent home directions for logging in at home.  I have already heard from families about not being able to log in.  SO I have some trouble shooting steps below you can try and see if you can access it.  I will also be posting most work via the classroom webpage on the Bennett website as well. So don’t freak out and know you will have access to something for your children.

Directions for accessing google classroom from home:

  1. Launch internet browser (preferably google chrome). Please make sure your student is not accessing chrome logged in as you or an older google account. You can check this by looking in the upper right-hand corner and click the circle that has an initial in it.Click that initial circle and if your name or an older google account pops up, please log off from that account.
  2. On an internet browser type/copy in search bar: https://classroom.google.com/c/Mzc5NTAzNTQ0NDBa
  3. Log in using your normal PWCS log in until the number 28, then add @pwcsbnes.org.For example: baranxp28@pwcsbnes.org
  4. Enter your normal PWCS password
  5. Then the classroom should appear and students may enter it.

*If it prompts you for a classroom code it is: eiwmo73

Please email me at baransm@pwcs.edu if you have concerns with logging in.

If students attended school on Friday, I was able to send home some activities. If your student stayed home no worries, I will be able to scan and you may print from home to complete.

Again, please stay safe and well as we navigate this new adventure of tel-learning.

Ms. Baran
