Shout out from the Woods kids rocking their Ponderosa gear during virtual spirit week this week. They are all trying to be trees... get it? @ponderosastrong
Hello Porcupine friends! We live in the Terrango Glen neighborhood on the south side of Empire and use the Empire crossing every day, along with dozens of other students and families. We are SOOO thankful that Ponderosa is staffing a crossing guard out there every morning and afternoon! Yesterday, several of us witnessed a terrible rear end accident as the 2nd car in line was obviously not paying attention - thankfully no one was hurt...but easily could have been when the first car was pushed forward.

Maybe 100 requests will get us a safe crossing for the littles!! Please and THANK YOU!!!
