Google Apps for Education












Kids at Lewis have a Google Account through Google Apps for Education. One account allows you access to your Google Docs, Google Slides, and more.

As teacher, I can connect with your Google Apps in real time through Hapara Teacher Dashboard. For example, Hapara allows me to pull up a Google Doc of yours on my computer to conference with you during class time or leave comments in your Google Doc after school hours.

You can access your Google Account from any computer. All you need is an Internet connection. 

How to access your Google Account in Three Steps

1. From a browser, preferably Chrome, go to google.com

2. Click the sign in button in the top-right.

3. Type in your school username and password. Remember to include the four numbers in your username followed by @apps4pps.net.  For example: msmith1234@apps4pps.net
