As part of Ancient Egypt studies, G3 students use @tinkercad to design a hieroglyphic stamp w/ their initials. Students started exploring the app, learning about all 3 dimensions, + measuring in millimeters. #PondCoveSchool #3Ddesign #metricsystem
Through a generous grant from our Education Foundation #CEEF we were able to make #CoderExpress goodie bags. They contain all of the materials for the unplugged activities and of course a cookie and some hot chocolate! Over 250 families signed up! #PondCoveSchool
3rd-grade students started their Ancient Egypt studies in style. Students went on a "field trip" to Ancient Egypt with #GoogleExpeditions + #VirtualReality We visited the Nile River, and saw a Pharaoh's tomb. #PondCoveSchool
Pond Cove staff pictures are displayed in a show of appreciation for their dedication and commitment to our students and community.
First grade students are using their photography skills + the app ChatterPix to tell their families what they are thankful for #PondCoveSchool Their voices are making these turkeys talk.
