Currently neither can access their documents that they need for school this week.  One will get her documents back once a part gets replaced.  The other will never recover her files.  Her machine had a melt down.  Literally.... the wires inside melted and smoked up her room yesterday.  There is nothing recoverable on that drive. What if your machine crashed this week?  Hos badly would you stroke? Take 5 - 10 minutes to relieve some of your stress or worry.  UPload to google drive.  You always have a copy no matter if your machine crashes and the documents are available anywhere, anytime. go to drive.google.com  login like going to mail click new click folder upload search your computer for your my documents folder.  select it. click upload. that's it.  (unless you have documents saved all over the place such as desktop, other folders, etc. )                                               8-11-2016 Submitted by: David Smith I have shared with you a couple of ways to save Youtube sound tracks.  I found this one which is about as simple as you can get. http://www.youtube-mp3.org/ Find the Youtube you want an mp3 of and copy the URL (the http://) and paste it into the box and then hit Convert Video.  It will then give you a download link.  Click on the link and save the file and that is it.  Best of all "Its FREE".

Enjoy, 8-25-2016 Submitted by: Rhonda Norris If you use a smart phone or tablet are you aware that you can download google specific apps to make your life easier? if you are a techie you can download google admin to help you reset passwords with a click or two. If you use google sheets or docs you can download these two separately as well. there are also apps for google drive and gmail that you can download as well.  Google hangouts is also an app. Currently there is no app for google forms or google slides but I was told they were in the works. just a click and you are in and can access your files easily.  Nicole Clark from Grant High reminded me that there is an app as well for Google Classroom.  I don't personally use it so I didn't think to include it in my email. She indicated it made her life much easier with that app with her classroom. So if you are using google classroom and have a smart phone you might want to check out getting the app for that.
