Dear Panther Lake Elementary Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2015-16 school year. My name is Paula McPhee, Principal of Panther Lake. This is going to be a very exciting year of continued growth and student success. As the principal of Panther Lake Elementary, I believe strongly in the 3 R’s – Relationships, Relevance, and Rigor. What this means for you and your child is that we at Panther Lake, value first and foremost, strong and caring relationships between students, their parents and guardians, and the Panther Lake Staff. Then, we can focus our teaching on student learning that is relevant or can be applied to real-life. And then finally, after we establish these relationships and relevant teaching and learning, the Panther Lake staff provides rigorous learning that engages and challenges students so they are eager to learn every moment of every school day.
At Panther Lake, we will continue to focus on PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Supports) that create a safe and civil learning environment at school and build strong relationships between students and staff that lead to high levels of student achievement. I believe that a strong parent/guardian partnership with our school is at the cornerstone of our student success.
This school year, 2015-16, will be the best yet at Panther Lake Elementary.
Paula McPhee – Principal of Panther Lake Elementary
