Elementary schools celebrate “Premier Panthers”
There was some big celebrating this week at Van Alstyne elementary schools. Students at Partin and Sanford Elementary Schools were recognized for showing their “Panther PRIDE.” It’s an initiative that administrators at both campuses are encouraging this year.
“PRIDE” is an acronym for “prepared, respect, integrity, determined and engaged.” According to the “Panther Promise,” each student is asked to come prepared, have respect, act with integrity, be determined and stay engaged in all that they do wherever they go.
“We will reward our students with tickets that will be used for weekly drawings and will have Premier Panthers that will be recognized once every two weeks,” Sanford Elementary Principal Tiffany Bietz said. “We can’t wait to see the positive impact this has on our school community! This week we had our opportunity to celebrate the first group of Premier Panthers.”
