Gradebook and portfolio looks different on all devices Gradebook and portfolio look the same on all devices
Announcements go to the whole class Announcements can be customized, can be used like email. (i.e. you can email 4 students through fresh grade next rather than the whole class)


  • Important to educate parents!

– When they post a comment, only the teacher can see it, not all the other parents

– Privacy concerns – when you download a class photo from fresh grade you cant post on social media



– When first starting, just use for communication and announcements

– Focus on 1 subject

-Photograph groups and tag students

When you “share as a highlight” – this notifies parents to look at your post

-Quick note

-When you email FreshGrade with a concern, make sure you email them with your school district email so they will reply to you ASAP.
