Veterans Day Celebration Thursday, November 10th @ 9:30am

Hey Little Panthers! Is your parent, grandparent, or someone special to you a Veteran? If so, we would like to honor him/her at our upcoming Veterans Day Celebration on November 10th at 9:30. Please invite your Veteran to our celebration using the invitation linked to this article. Return the top portion of the invitation filled out with any and all Veterans whether or not they are attending the program. There will be a special gift and a send-off after the program. Send in a photo with the invitation (you will get the photo back) or e-mail the photo to [email protected], along with the invitation attached, so Mrs. Dodson can add your Veteran to the slideshow. We want to recognize as many Veterans as possible. If you have more than one Veteran, you may pick up another form from the office or your teacher (or just use a blank sheet of paper). Please have the photos and information submitted NO LATER THAN Friday, November 4th. Late submissions are not guaranteed to appear in the slideshow. We are looking forward to honoring ALL our BESt Veterans!

Square 1 Art Time! Orders Due Nov. 15th! Featured Photo

Square 1 Art Time! Orders Due Nov. 15th!

It's the most colorful time of the year again! Every year, the art department hosts a Square 1 Art fundraiser. Every student makes an original work of art in their art class, it gets mailed off to Square 1 Art, they scan the images in, they send each student a catalog with stickers of their artwork- along with products available to purchase with the student work masterfully rendered on it. The school receives a portion of the profits which are used to purchase high quality art materials.
The Square 1 Art catalogs have (or are about to) head home with your kiddos! The deadline to order is November 15th. If you are ready to shop before you get the catalog, feel free to head over to: Go to the "Find or Add your Child's Art" & put in your kiddo's info. You can always go back to artwork created in years past and make purchases! I broke my favorite mug and was able to re-buy it last year. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at [email protected] Thanks for your continued support in ensuring our Little Panthers have a variety of high quality art materials year after year- and our tradition of excellence can continue! -Mrs. Swanger & Mr. Forbes

Welcome to a great new year! There's no place I'd rather B!

A Hundred Years From Now

"A hundred years from now, it will not even matter what my bank account was,
the sort of house I lived in, or even the kind of car I drove...
but the world may be different  because I was important
in the life of a CHILD!"
