• Meet the Lions Community Pep Rally & Bonfire

    Come join us Wednesday, September 30, 2020 for Ponder High School’s annual Meet the Lions Community Pep Rally & Bonfire!  The event will begin at 7:30 pm. We will be introducing our PHS Football, Cross Country, and Volleyball teams, as well as our Cheerleading squad, the Legacies dance team, and our PHS Band.

    Our goal at PISD is to maintain as much normalcy as possible during these unprecedented times. However, to maintain safety for all of our students, staff, and community, individuals are encouraged to practice social distancing, and face coverings will be required for ALL attendees older than the age of 10 (unless due to medical reasons it is not possible).

    Please note that parking will be available in the PHS student parking lot and all attendees are encouraged to sit on the visitor side of the football stadium. Participants on the field will face the visitor bleachers during the Meet the Lions event.

    The bonfire will begin after all participants are introduced and will continue throughout the different performances by the cheerleaders, dance team, and band. Please note for safety reasons all attendees will need to stay within the football stadium to view the bonfire. Thank you for your continued support to Ponder ISD and all of our Ponder Lions!

  • Information Related to Student Safety and Recent Events

    The safety and security of our students is top priority at Ponder ISD. We want everyone to be aware that earlier this week a student on our High School Campus made remarks that could be construed as threats to other students. This situation was handled swiftly and efficiently by local law enforcement officials and this individual will not be present on any of our campuses for the immediate future. It has been determined that no students were ever in danger nor were there any weapons present on campus.

  • Ascender Parent Portal is LIVE- Returning & NEW Student Registration is Available

    The new Ascender Parent Portal is now live and has replaced txConnect. This solution now allows for online registration which has been a feature often requested by our community. Letters were mailed to parents/guardians on June 3, 2020 which contain instructions on how to begin using this new parent portal. The parent letters were intended to be delivered in May, but due to technical problems the letters were held until the developers were able to release software updates to make the system work properly. We apologize for the delay, but hope that you will find it worthwhile.

    To fiind out more details about how to complete the online registration process, visit our online registation information page.

  • EZSchoolPay Available To Parents
    Once again this school year parents can view purchase and credit details online for their child's cafeteria transactions via a service known as EZSchoolPay.  Through this portal, parents can see the quantity and types of items students are purchasing both at breakfast and lunch as well as view their child's account balance.  Additionally, parents can also choose to have a notification email sent whenever their child's account balance drops below an amount specified by the parent.  Both of these services are free.  As always, if a parent chooses to make deposits online, a service charge fee is incurred.  For more details, view the EZSchoolPay information page.
