Winter Percussion Ensemble Places 2nd

Congratulations to Ponderosa's Winter Percussion Ensemble on their 2nd place finish at Championships this past Saturday!  The group played incredibly well, returning to finals for the first time in 8 years and did a great job representing Ponderosa.  Highlands Ranch was the only other Douglas County school to make finals and Ponderosa was the only one to medal in Championships this year.  Great Job everyone!!
