This is the best of what PUSD has to offer, a dedicated staff of teachers, etc. who want to see our students progress and succeed. I am so happy to see that Mr. Ladd and Mrs. Wohlgemuth are still involved in this wonderful program. My daughter was in the 2007 second place national competition. I will of course be sending in a modest donation to the fundraising that needs to be done. Way To Go Amador High!
