Governor's Cup Academic Team
Ponderosa's Academic team is made up of approximately 20-30 4th and 5th grade students who compete against other local schools in the academic subjects. Students can compete with written assessment in Math, Science, Language Arts, Social Studies and General Knowledge categories. We also have a Future Problem Solving Team who works to brainstorm solutions to anticipated problems of the future. Our Quick Recall team competes against other teams in a 20 minute match, where students ring in on buzzers as fast as they can to answer questions posed by a moderator.
For more information regarding the academic team, contact Ponderosa Elementary (606-928-2330).
Student Technology Leadership Program
The Student Technology Leadership Program is sponsored by fourth grade teacher Ms. Lyons. Students volunteer to stay after school to learn computer etiquette, cyber-safety, and the basics of Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher, and PowerPoint.
Good News Club
Volunteers from Garner Baptist Church plan activities for students who wish to attend on Monday's after school.
The local Girl Scout troop meets at Ponderosa Elementary regularly. For more information about this group, contact Ponderosa Elementary School, 606-928-2330.
