Parents of 4th and 5th grade students,

This year our 4th and 5th grade classes have been working on a new drama project here at Ponderosa.  Each 4th and 5th grade class has been preparing a reader’s theater play to perform for the school and for our families.  Students have been responsible for all aspects of their play including directing the play, designing sets, props, costumes, sound effects and choosing background music.

On Monday, March 26 and Tuesday, March 27 the 4th and 5th grade classes are proud to present “Readers Theater Night” at Ponderosa.  


Our fourth grade classes will perform on Monday, March 26, at 6:30 p.m.

Our 5th grade classes will perform on Tuesday, March 27, at 6:30 p.m.

We look forward to sharing our creative projects with you!
