Welcome to Panther Lake Elementary!

Christine Szymanski

Dear Panther Lake families,
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday filled with family, friends and good food.  As we return to school, we have just four weeks until the winter break and the end of the first semester. These weeks will be filled with fun events and activities, but we will also be completing the mid-year FAST assessment.  This will give us a better understanding of your child’s strengths and standards that need more focus.  We will use this data to provide more focused instruction for your child as we begin the second semester in January.  With this in mind, it is important to ensure your child comes to school well rested and ready to learn each day.  Attendance is extremely important and we would appreciate your support with this matter. In the event your child will be missing school before or after the winter holidays, please know that these are not excused absences and students will be expected to complete all work that was missed during their absence.  The OCPS policy is that students may have the number of days absent plus one to make up any missed work.
Dr. Christine Szymanski
