Citizen of the Week

This week’s citizen is a quiet leader in our classroom. He truly leads by example. He is always on task and never needs reminders of school or classroom expectations. He works hard on his school work, always doing his best. He is always ethical and makes good decisions even when no one is watching. He is kind and caring to everyone and in return is liked and respected by all of his peers. Although he is very quiet, this person shows everyone what it means to be Panther READY by his actions every day. That is why this week’s Citizen of the Week is………..

We would also like to thank the Panorama Booster Club for providing t-shirts for our Citizens of the Week.
