Canvas Accounts          

Canvas is a learning management system which revolutionizes the way teachers and students interface. Students are able to receive assignments, submit homework electronically, participate in multi-class forums, and monitor grades. Parents are encouraged to be an observer in your student’s classes in order to monitor homework and grades.
