Alice Ponder Elementary held its 1st Annual Ponder Clap Out for seniors graduating from high school who began elementary school at Alice Ponder Elementary.
Alice Baird, kindergarten bilingual teacher, was all tears when she saw her kindergarten babies return donning their caps and gowns. She, along with many other Ponder teachers, hold cherished memories of these students who will now go out to face the world as educated, capable young adults.
Pictured above is Mrs. Baird with some of her returning students, as well as their kindergarten pic, something that she has held on to.
"I told them in kindergarten that if they just kept working hard, they could graduate one day!" On June 3, they will do just that.
Mrs. Baird, along with all of our Ponder teachers, made a difference in the life of a child, and that is something those students will never forget.
To all of our graduating seniors, Congratulations! We wish you all the very best!
