Welcome to Panther Lake Elementary!

Christine Szymanski

Dear Panther Lake Families,

We look forward to meeting everyone on Monday August 8th for our “Meet the Teacher” event.  Students in grades Kindergarten to second grade should plan to come to their classroom between 9:00 and 10:30 AM. Students in grade three to five should plan to visit between 10:30 AM and 12:00 PM.  If you ordered school supplies from our PTO you can stop by the cafeteria to receive them and then bring them to the classroom.  PTO will also have spirit wear available for purchase as well.  This will be a busy morning and if you live close by, please consider walking to the school.

Wednesday, August 10th is the first day of school.  This is the only day that we allow parents and family members to walk students to their classrooms.  Morning drop off will begin at 8:15. Please be sure to park in a space in the parking lot or walk to school if possible.  Please do not park in the car loop or bus loop.  This will impede families from being able to drop their child off if they do not plan to walk them to class.  When using the car loop in the morning, we have one drop off lane.  In the afternoon, we double stack our car loop.  A map for afternoon car procedures has been included. 

When students arrive on Wednesday teachers will have a tag to place on your child’s back pack that will identify how they arrive and depart school.  Please be sure to leave these on so our staff can get to know your child and their method of transportation.  

The first week of school will be very busy as everyone learns new patterns and procedures.  We ask for your patience and understanding as we establish routines.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday Aug. 8th!

Dr. Christine Szymanski
