Destiny Quest Set-Up

  1. Download the Destiny Quest app from the iTunes store.
  2. On the Connect to Your Library screen, type in "" into the bar. (Check you spelling! The number one problem students have when this step doesn't work is a spelling error.)
  3. Tap Connect.
  4. On the Select Library menu, tap Daniel F Mahoney Middle School (it's the first one!).
  5. Get Started: the User ID is the prefix of your school email address, that is usually the first six letters of your last name plus the first two letters of your first name.

  6. The password is spsd1234 (you can change this later).

Reviews that are inappropriate or off-topic will not be published).
