Edmodo Revealed

Dear Parent(s) of a STEAM-link Student

As many of you are aware, we will be introducing STEAM-link students to a really good tool on Tuesday in class. Edmodo is a school safe social media program allowing students, parents, and teachers to easily communicate a variety of important elements between each other.

Our goal is to have a central hub for all of us to turn to for answers on the daily homework, tasks, and vital information presented in class on any specific day. Edmodo will also allow for collaboration between us all in a safe and secure environment.

In light of this new tool, I will be hosting a couple of Edmodo based meetings. Please see below for those dates and times. These workshops are not "required" but are meant to only be supplemental. If you plan on attending either of them please drop one of the STEAM-link teachers a note. Virtual meetings are limited to 10 participants at any given time.
