Stay sharp with summer reading

As you are planning out your summer months, please keep in mind that one of the most detrimental things that can happen to a student over summer break is for NO learning momentum to exist. Even a student reading 15 minutes a day over the summer months will come back to school in much better academic shape.

'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!
