21st Century Communication

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!

We have many exciting things happening at Pond Cove this year! The first was our annual Parent Night in the Pond Cove Cafetorium on September 20th, from 6:30-7:30. Below you will find the Google Presentation for the evening as well as a link to the video of the entire presentation. Many thanks to Jack Duffy for filming the evening! We covered the following topics during our night:

  1. The new Cape Elizabeth website
  2. Teacher Blogs
  3. Twitter in Education
  4. Media Permissions Forms
There were several good questions on the evening. One of them concerned iOS updates and keeping things current and secure. After conferring with the other members of the tech team here is the answer to that question:

"Our iPads are iPad 2's. These are 4 and 5-year-old machines which cannot update to the latest iOS. We have updated all iPads to 9.3.5 and will continue to automatically update all apps. At this time we do not have a plan for iPad replacement, but we are working on a solution as part of the tech plan."

If there are any other questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email me
