Sending mass e-mails using the g- groups

We have Google groups that create automatically which you can use to send e-mails or share documents to all of your parents and students.  These groups are restricted to only the teachers of record for the classes so others cannot use them without you contacting IT first.

For elementary teachers, your group is g-school-(par or stu)-yourusername@newarkunified.org
So if I were a teacher at Snow and I wanted to send an e-mail to my parents I would send to g-snow-par-lsimon@newarkunified.org
Or if I were a teacher at BGI and I wanted to share a document to my students I can share to g-bgi-stu-lsimon@newarkunified.org

For secondary teachers, we have a group created to send to all of your students as well as the groups split out by period.
If I were a teacher at NJHS and I wanted to send an e-mail to my first period classes parents I would send to g-njhs-par-lsimon-p1@newarkunified.org
If I were a teacher at NMHS and I wanted to send an e-mail to all of my students I would send to g-nmhs-stu-lsimon-all@newarkunified.org

For entire school grade level groups, these are available but access needs to be granted to you manually by IT.
If I needed to e-mail all 9th grade parents I would e-mail g-nmhs-par-gr9@newarkunified.org
If I needed to e-mail all 7th grade students I would e-mail g-njhs-stu-gr7@newarkunified.org

These groups should also auto-complete as you type making them easier to find.
