Ponoka Elementary School is even more excited to see the smiling faces that the 2023-24 school year will bring back into the school this September!
We have our annual "Get the Scoop" event on September 7th from 3:30-5:30 where we invite all our families for some ice cream and to meet the teacher.
Before coming back to school there might be a few things you will want to know about... and we have prepared that all for you here!

Demographic forms need to be reviewed and updated for each child by September 15, 2023. These forms will be sent through School Engage (bottom left hand corner when you are in your Parent Portal) on August 22. These forms confirm your child's enrollment at PES, and contain important information for the school to ensure your child's safety and well-being. If you are unsure how to access your Parent Portal and/or Demographic form please call the office and Shelley or Candi can help you out.
Demographic forms are easiest to access and fill out on a computer rather than a phone/tablet. Since the demographic forms include waiver documents and technology acceptable use agreements, any incomplete demographic forms after September 15th, will result in your child not able to participate in Phys. Ed, Field Trips, and/or access to technology. If you need any assistance in completing these forms please contact the office.
