Middle School to Use Edmodo for Enhanced Classroom Experience

This year we will be using Edmodo in middle school. Edmodo is a free and secure learning network for teachers, students, and schools. It provides a safe way for us to connect, share content, access homework, participate in discussions and receive class information.

Edmodo is accessible online and through any mobile device with Internet capabilities – including free apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. Students and parents can access their account from any mobile device or computer, and set up notifications within Edmodo to receive alerts/reminders via text or e-mail. Edmodo will not be used as a social network like Facebook or MySpace. This tool will be used strictly for educational purposes using the following guidelines:

  • Students will be required to use appropriate grammar instead of texting language
  • Edmodo does not allow private student-to-student messaging- the site will be used to discuss school-related content only
  • No put-downs or sarcasm toward another’s ideas. All school rules and consequences related to harassment apply

Students who violate the guidelines above may face disciplinary action and/or face losing the privilege of using Edmodo.

Edmodo also offers parent accounts and I’d like to invite you to join our classroom online. With Parent Accounts, you can:

  • View your student’s homework assignments and due dates 
  • Receive updates on class and school events 

To join your students classroom on Edmodo, follow these steps in the attached instructions. After you sign up for the first time, you will no longer need the parent code – you’ll login using your unique username and password to login. If you have multiple students, you can use the link on the left side of your screen to enter additional student codes.
Please keep in mind that teachers are using Edmodo to keep students and parents up-to-date on assignments, tests and quizzes. Assigments on the calendar in Edmodo may appear to be “Late” or “Not Turned In” because the assignment was something students turned in to the teacher and not on Edmodo. You should always refer to PowerSchool for accurate grade information; not Edmodo.

We look forward to a great year as we incorporate the use of technology into our classroom curriculum. If you have any questions, please contact your student’s teacher or Mrs. Daniels, our computer teacher, at kdaniels@caschools.us. Thank you for your time and efforts in connecting with us, through Edmodo!
