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.

We continue to build our relationship with Google and look forward to even more celebrations in the future.
