Emergency vehicles at Gideon Pond for bus safety practices

Greetings Pond Family,

We have received a couple messages from families and neighborhood community members about the buses and emergency vehicles outside Pond today.

We are conducting bus safety practices today in partnership with Schmitty and Sons (Bus company) and Burnsville Police Department.  

The fact that our families and community members are so aware of student safety makes our school a safer place.

Thank you!

Gideon Pond reader leader will be honored at Twins game

Fourth-grader Nabiil Ibrahim loves to read.

That’s one reason why Nabiil came to mind when Gideon Pond Elementary School Principal Chris Bellmont was asked by the Minnesota Twins to nominate a student to be honored during a game on June 5.

The Twins will spotlight students who embody attributes of literacy, courage and leadership. All three attributes apply to Nabiil, said Bellmont.
