GOOGLE VISITS FONTBONNE

In 2014, Fontbonne was exclusively chosen by Google to be the first full beta test school for "Google Classroom". We have incorporated the application into our daily instruction and have made significant technological advances in how we operate as a school. To celebrate Google Classroom's 5th Birthday, the Google For Education team spent the day at Fontbonne.
