Jr. High Canvas Parent App

Parents, our junior high students are using Canvas in most of their classes here at Highmark.  Canvas enables course curriculum to be shared online between teachers and students.  Students are able to receive instruction, files, assignments, calendar events, etc through Canvas.  They are also able to upload assignments back to Canvas through their Office 365 accounts.  This has been a feature at our school the past three years and enables students to also keep up with their course work when they are home sick or out for sports, trips, etc.

Canvas has developed a Parent App which allows parents to review upcoming or past assignments, check on grades, and receive course announcements.  Understand that your student’s course grade is the grade shown on SIS not Canvas.  Canvas grades only display assignments completed and graded in Canvas.  The SIS grade includes Canvas grades as well as any other grades received in class.
