Do you ever just dream of the day when...

The day has come! Google classroom will email home information about what is going on in Google Classroom automatically! Seriously! So very helpful on all fronts.

Information like missing and upcoming work. It will also add in any announcements you post.

This sample summary shows what could show up in a guardian's email inbox. Check out the sample Google created, it is extensive and shows you how powerful it actually is. It is wicked impressive.

Setting It Up
  • Log into Google Classroom.
  • Open one of your classrooms.
  • Click on the Students tab.

1. Toggle Include this class to on.
2. This will appear on your screen. Click Add Class.

Click Invite Guardians.

Add the guardian emails.
Click Invite.
Note: it appears the summaries will only work for those who have a gmail address. AOL, hotmail, etc will not work.

It now lists both parents as invited to receive the Classroom summaries.
The invited tag will disappear once they accept the invite.

The invite will appear in the guardian's inbox.

Final step. All they need to do is hit accept and let the summaries roll in!

This is the first of two posts detailing some new Classroom features. Wait until you see what is next, even better than this email feature!
