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.
