Panther Post

January 11 - 15, 2016 - Serve, Lead & Inspire

Hello Panther Parents and Guardians,

I hope everyone had a good week back. Waking my son up for morning basketball practice the first day wasn’t the easiest thing I have done. Seeing all the kids here in the classrooms collaborating and working through challenging lessons together was nice though.

Next week should be really exciting for our 8th graders. They will be headed over to Reagan High School for their campus tour and they will also get to see many of the organizations perform. Everything from ROTC to Choir will be showing their talents and letting our kids see where they might want to grow their own. I hope they enjoy it! It comes at a great time, right before we start with course cards to choose classes for next school year. More information about that process is coming.

Let's have a great second semester!
