Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day
This annual event, which will be celebrated nationally on Thursday, April 26, will not take place within the district due to the administration of the Florida Standards Assessments.
However, we do provide a very flexible means for you and your child/children to take part in this day when it does not conflict with the state of Florida testing window. You can request suitable times and days for you and your child/children to participate in such a day as long as it does not conflict with already scheduled activities at the school and gaining prior approval of all parties concerned.
If the child/children are not scheduled for testing and a parent wants to take them out of school on April 26, 2018, to participate in the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day at their workplace, then such an absence would be an excused absence. Please work through the principal(s) of the school(s) of your child/children to arrange a Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.
Parents of ESE students, please take a few minutes to provide us with your feedback. The survey is available at www.esesurvey.com.
Welcome to Ponce de Leon Elementary. Ponce de Leon students will have the opportunity this year to check out a computer for home use. Beyond the Classroom is a districtwide initiative that will expand digital learning and extended learning opportunities for our students. This program will provide our students with free access to several online educational resources that will motivate them to read more and help them to improve their skills in many subjects, including language arts, science and math. This program is aimed at giving students at Title I schools equal access to the technology they need to be successful. If you would like to participate in this program, please call the front office at 588-3573. If you are a business or community partner who would like to support this effort, please check out our "Get Engaged" page to see how you can help.
