Winter Percussion Ensemble Places 2nd

Congratulations to Ponderosa's Winter Percussion Ensemble on their 2nd place finish at Championships this past Saturday!  The group played incredibly well, returning to finals for the first time in 8 years and did a great job representing Ponderosa.  Highlands Ranch was the only other Douglas County school to make finals and Ponderosa was the only one to medal in Championships this year.  Great Job everyone!!

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
