LaVigne's Blog of Science!

Not just another Cobb Learning site

Welcome to my BLOG!

August21

Greetings to my new Kell students!  This is my blog home for my AP Physics I and Conceptual Physics classes.

If you need additional help, please plan on staying on a Tuesday or Thursday afternoon from 3:45-4:45pm. Let me know you plan on staying.
The Synergy grade app for students can be downloaded to your smart phone to check your grades – not in school, of course.

  • In the app store ( Apple or Android) look up “student vue” and download the app. It’s free.
  • When it asks for the school district URL, enter https://studentvue.cobbk12.org . Make sure to put in https, not http.
  • Hit the “test” button to make sure it works
  • Enter your normal student school login and password

I send TEXT Message updates for my classes:
