Class Story is our class-wide bulletin board.  Class Story can be seen by all connected parents in the class, but not by the whole school.  This is a great place to post class news, images from class events or projects, or post reminders that are relevant to your parents only.

To Post to Class Story:

  1. Open your class
  2. Click on the "Class Story" tab
  3. Tap on "Photo/Video" to add a photo or video. (You can add mp4 videos up to 8 minutes long). Tap "File" to upload an attachment (we currently support the following file attachments: PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Text, and CSV). Tap "Record" to record a video directly on our site. (Videos can be up to 8 minutes long). Tap "Event" to add a Classroom event to your Class Story feed.   
  4. Add your text in the "What's happening in your classroom?" box
  5. Click on "Post" to publish
