Canvas The primary means of communication with students will be through Canvas. In our Canvas Classroom, students will receive notices about upcoming assignments, exam information, concert reminders, scheduling, links to music, and other important information. Throughout the year, students will be uploading video assessments on a regular basis using their personal phone or one of our classroom iPads.
