We’re wrapping up a year of incredible growth at FreshGrade, and we wanted to take a moment to thank all of our amazing supporters — teachers, educational advocates, parents, and students who have made it possible.
As we reflect on the year gone by, it fills us with pride and purpose for the year ahead. Whatever you’ve done this year, we hope you are using the holiday season as a chance to relax and recharge.
