Here are the instructions for getting into their Clever accounts. You will need to go to the district website www.hamilton.k12.nj.us. Once there, click on resources, then go to the For Students tab and click on Clever-District Applications Portal. The students usually use the badge log in but they do not have those so they need to put their ID's into the Log in with Google. These are the ID's that are taped into their folders and begin with the number 30. The passwords are the second set of characters that start with their initials and 5 numbers. This will bring you to Clever and you must accept the terms. Once on Clever, the students can navigate through the apps. Today one of the assignments is in Study Island. Students will open that site and click on My Classes on the left. There they will find lessons from the specials teachers and our homeroom which is Homeroom02-80118. The ELA and math assignments are there under the Homeroom tab.There are also written lessons in their packets with instructions in your email and on our classroom page which can be accessed through the website.
