Student Handbook

Student Handbook

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Ponderosa Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year.  We are extremely excited to be able to provide your children with every opportunity to be successful this school year.  We are equally excited to work closely with you, as parents, to ensure success for all of our students.  

The purpose of providing this handbook is to present you with the information that is most important to you and your children. Without support from home, the success of Ponderosa Elementary will be impossible to achieve.   

It is important that you discuss the information that is provided in this handbook with your children.  Because student success is the ultimate goal at Ponderosa Elementary School, a full understanding of the rules and expectations is a must from our students and parents.  Please continue to review the school rules with your children throughout the year.  Please use our Cumberland County Student Code of Conduct / Cumberland County Student Code of Conduct (Spanish Version) as a reference if you have any questions about school policies and procedures. You may also contact us at 910.864.0148 or 910.864.0149.  We will be happy to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about our school. 

The administration, faculty, and staff of Ponderosa Elementary School are committed to providing your children with every opportunity to achieve success.  We believe that failure is not an option and our goal is to ensure that your child’s school experience is one that will promote both academic and personal growth.   

We encourage you, as parents, to become involved with your child’s education through involvement with our school.  We will provide various opportunities throughout the year for you to become an active member of our learning environment.  Again, please contact us with any suggestions or concerns you may have about your child’s school experience.  We look forward to another successful year at Ponderosa Elementary School. 

Thank you for your continued support.
