Parking at Podesta

Parking was doing great for a while.  Please keep in mind that you are a role model for your child.  If you are arguing with other parents, parking illegally, and acting unbecoming of a Red Tailed Hawk, you are not being a good role model.  We need to always show our best character!  Thank you for being conscience of this.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

REMEMBER:  The Green Zone is for dropping off & picking up.  Do not leave your vehicle.  If you need to park, park in the parking lot.

REMEMBER:  The Bus Zone is for busses only.

REMEMBER:  There is no parking on Windmill Park Drive.

There was a fantastic turn out on Thursday night here at Podesta Ranch. Many families had the honor of seeing the enthusiastic performer and hearing his heartfelt message of being positive.  Thank you to all of the families who came out Thursday evening to support Podesta Ranch and Retro Bill.  There will be pictures soon!
