My name is Christi Shelton (formerly Miller), and I am the music specialist at Ponderosa Elementary School.  We are having great year at Ponderosa!     
This is our Mustang Music page!  I am very excited to share information about our music program with you, so please take a look at all of the events we have planned.
        Our music classes offer every child in our school opportunities to perform for their classmates, teachers, and families.  
     Fourth and Fifth grade students will be learning to play the recorder. There are links to the left links for recorder music.
        If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email christi.shelton@boyd.kyschools.us, or voice mail at (606)-928-2330 and I will get back with you as soon as possible.
