Message From Principal Hetrick

Dear Families,

Welcome to Pony Express, Home of the SMART Panther.  Together, we will create a year of excellence for our children as we focus on academics and building culture and family engagement. We will create a school where safety, respect, accountability, support and excellence are highly evident! In creating a culture of college readiness, we continue to build shared understandings about what this means and ways parents and teachers can work together to ensure that every SMART Panther is college and career ready.

Ring in Spring with an ice cream sundae!  Sundaes are $2 each and include one scoop of ice cream (chocolate or vanilla) and toppings.

Also, the Silent Auction returns this year!  Put a bid in for great items, such as Disneyland tickets and themed gift baskets.

Order early and be placed in a drawing for a coupon book or a MixedBag bag.
