TO ACCESS ASSIGNMENTS ON MY CLASS PAGE ON THE YMA WEBSITE: 

The Yonkers Montessori Academy website is a public website so there is no log in or password required.

 Select "Assignments" on the left side of my home page.  When you click on an assignment, there will be a link to a PDF file of the assignment.  Make sure you scroll all the way down for each assigment because some are multiple pages.  Once completed, submit photos of the assignments to me by email before 2:15 p.m. on the due date.

 

TO ACCESS ASSIGNMENTS ON KHAN ACADEMY :

Log in to  www.khanacademy.org . Click on the "Assignments" tab, select an assignment, and begin.  Complete the assignments before 11:59 p.m. on the due date.  These assignments are submitted to me automatically.

Your username is your school email address.  Your password is your school id number followed by your uppercase initials.

When you log in, make sure you see "Ms. McKenna" under "My Coaches."  If not, then enter the class code for your class as printed below.

 IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOG IN TO YOUR EXISTING ACCOUNT that we created together in September:

Click on "forgot my password" and create a new password (Remember to write it down and keep it in a safe place!)

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK:

You must create a NEW account with an email address that is NOT the school email address that you used to create your account in September.  You may use your personal email if you have one, or you can use your parent's email. (Remember to write down your login and password and keep them in a safe place!)

Once your account is created, you must "join a class" by entering my class code.

7M4 (periods 3 and 6) class code - MGBN36H2

After the class code is entered, you should see "Ms. McKenna" listed under "My Coaches."  Then you're ready to go!
