PANTHER PRIDE FOCAL POINT

I hope that this Panther Pride Focus finds you rested and rejuvenated after a Five day break.  This gives us just 18 school days until Winter Vacation!  18 days is not very many and it is worth discussing how important each and every one of these 18 days are.  It has been mentioned in previous Focuses the importance of attendance and being present.  It is hard to think about the importance of good attendance with the whole year in mind. I mean, 9 months IS a long time.  BUT, the time between Thanksgiving and Winter break is brief.  Only 18 days.  18 days full of unique opportunities to learn something new, or meet someone new, finish something you’ve been working on, finish some late work, catch up with an old friend, or who knows what else!  You never know what amazing things these 18 days could have in store for you, so be sure to be here, be PRESENT, and don’t  miss a single one of these opportunities.    Have a great week and GO PANTHERS!
