    What is Seesaw?
    Dear Parents,

    At Hillcrest we use a commuication tool named Seesaw to keep parents connected to our classrooms and to information. Your child will have his or her own learning journal (Seesaw Account), and you can get notified when your child adds new items. It's completely private -- only you can see your child's journal outside of class. This is also how we share grade level newsletters, as well as classroom information, student communication and more. It is an easy way to contact Miss Brown directly and also interaxct with your students classroom work. 
    Start Using Seesaw in Your Class!

    To sign up follow the follwing steps on a computer, using the internet:


    1. Type in https://app.seesaw.me/s/283-123-241 to sign up -- it takes just 30 seconds.

    2. Once you sign up, you can download the Seesaw Family app for iPhone or Android, or access your child's journal on the web.








    Don't have a personal computer or smart phone? Visit the library!  Lawrence has a wonderful Library and you can even get a Library card for free that will allow you to check out books and other types of media. 


    P.S. If you have more than one child using Seesaw, or want to add a new class/school year for your child, follow the link in this email, then click 'Sign in' tab at the top. You do not need to create a new account.
