Welcome to the 2020-2021 academic year!
It is safe to say that we'll be doing things a little bit *differently* this go around - but that doesn't mean that we can't have a good time and learn more than we expect to in the process.
We'll be using the Microsoft Office 365 suite of apps, which include Microsoft Teams, which will become our learning management system and will handle all of our communications, assignments, resources, etc.
All students ALREADY have a login. Begin by logging into CLEVER.
To access CLEVER, click here.
Student login: student IDfirstname.lastname@example.org
Student password: the student's 8 digit birthdate
Once logged into CLEVER, students can scroll down to the OFFICE 365 button, and click it. That will log the student into OFFICE 365, and it'll give them access to TEAMS, WORD, ONE NOTE, etc.
I will provide training and instruction, for both parents and students, on all of these platforms once we get started.

Mr. Lou Di Monaco
I am the 7th and 8th grade ELA teacher here at Kahlil Gibran School. I have a BA in English Literature and my MS in Adolescent Education and Educating Students with Special Needs. Currently in my 8th year at Gibran, I am eager to work with all students - not only in class - but also with the various extracurricular activities that I am involved with. I am the faculty adviser for the National Junior Honor Society and our "Tiger Talk" school newspaper. Students who are interested in being a part of either of these should see me!
