Gideon Pond is seeking tutors

Would you love to help children grow their reading or math skills and succeed in school? If your answer is yes, you can be trained to serve as a tutor with Minnesota Reading Corps or Minnesota Math Corps at Gideon Pond Elementary.  Whether you want to explore a career in education, re-enter the workforce, or give back to your community, you can be a child’s hero as a tutor.

'I Love to Read' month at Pond

This February, celebrate reading with Gideon Pond Elementary and "I Love to Read" month. This year's theme is "Leaping into a Year of Reading at Pond!"

Students and staff will be taking part in fun reading activities all month long, including:

  • Book reviews 
  • Frog-themed punch cars to track reading
  • Reading goals for each class and prizes
  • Celebrity readers, including Burnsville Mayor Elizabeth Kautz and Superintendent Joe Gothard
  • ​And much more!

Watch how reading makes everything more exciting at Pond!
