Emily has been selected for the All-State Women's Choir.  She will have the opportunity to sing under the direction of Dr. Sandra Snow.  Dr. Snow holds conducting and music education appointments at Michigan State University and is one of the most sought-after conductors in the country. 
Charlotte has been selected for the All-State Mixed Choir. She will be singing under the direction of Dr. Jeffery Douma, a Professor of Conducting at Yale University and the founding conductor of Yale Choral Artists, one of the best professional choirs in the country. Charlotte will have a very unique experience as the All-State Mixed Choir is performing one of Ponderosa Choir Teacher Tim Tharaldson's compositions.  Great job Emily and Charlotte!

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”
