At Boulder Valley Waldorf School our teachers are dedicated to delivering quality Waldorf learning activities that are close to what your child would experience at school but with a manageable balance of more independent work. Each class is uniquely tailored to the age group and needs of your child.

At BVWS we are incorporating limited use of technology, including email, recorded audio and video, teleconferencing, and Google Classroom for organizing class materials. Technology is being used with our Distance Learning to support students and families.

How to turn in assignments in Google Classroom

It’s a good idea to upload all of your work to the Google Drive account linked to your @bvwaldorf GSuite address. This allows you to access your work from any device you’re on. Here’s how to turn in your assignment on Google Classroom. 

  1. Click the class > Classwork > the assignment.
  2. To attach an item:
    • Under Your work, click Add or create > select Google Drive.
    • Navigate to your assignment file and click Upload
    • (Optional) To remove an attachment, next to the attachment’s name, click Remove X
    • (Optional) To add a private comment to your teacher, under Private comments, enter your comment and click Post.
    • Click Turn In and confirm.
    • The status of the assignment changes to Turned in.

Mark an assignment as done

You may have an assignment that doesn’t need anything uploaded. 

Important: Any assignment turned in or marked done after the due date is recorded as late, even if you previously submitted the work before the due date.

  1. Click the class > Classwork > the assignment.
  2. (Optional) Under Private comments, add a private comment for your teacher and click Post.
  3. Click Mark as done and confirm.
    The status of the assignment changes to Turned in.
