Each year the Ponderosa PTSA honors members of our community who have made special contributions. Individuals (and organizations) who have made significant contributions to the well-being of children, youth, or families at Ponderosa and in the community can be considered for this award. Please consider which teachers, staff, parents, volunteers, or other community members, or organizations have really made a difference for Ponderosa’s children, and nominate them for an award to be given out at the Classroom Celebrations Night on May 16, 2017. You can submit your nominations by emailing Inbal Demri at inbalshaham@yahoo.com, or by filling in a nomination form (copies are available in the office and in each classroom). Please email your nominations or submit the completed forms to the PTSA mailbox, your child’s teacher, or the office staff by Tuesday, March 28th.
