Panther Play Days/ Fuel Up to Play 60
The Panther Play Day is an initiative started this year to reward students who follow the school wide code: PAW. Students in grades 1 – 5 are invited once a month to take part in after school games and activities in the gym from 3:30 – 4:30 PM. In order to take part in the Panther Play Day, students will need the following:
* No Referrals, Lunch or Recess Detention or ISI/ISS

This program encourages staff members and students to live a healthy life style. Students are able to register and log in points, on laptops, for FUTP60 while they are at the event. Each month focuses on a different sports theme. Volunteers help with the activities and socialize with the kids. Panther Play days are also tied into our school-wide initiative, PBIS, which focuses on attendance,academics and accountability.

Communication Arts and Technology Club – C.A.T. Club
Advisor: Mrs. Gina Deal
The purpose of The C.A.T Club is to provide students in fifth grade with an opportunity to explore their artistic talents while maintaining good grades and positive behavior. The CAT Club has been established since we moved into our newly renovated building in 2007. Student and advisors meet once a week to learn how to use the technology and the equipment in the studio. It is our endeavor to provide alternative ways to soar by introducing them to the world of broadcast communications through the Communications Arts and Technology Club (C.A.T. Club). The C.A.T. Club broadcasts the morning announcements daily. They create the slides that are displayed on our electronic bulletin board.

Nothin’ but Net (NBN)
Coaches: Mr. Dustin Thomas and Mr. Kyle Brown
NBN is a basketball program that encourages the love of reading and positive behavior for 4th and 5th graders. Boys and girls take part in an intramural basketball program that combines the skills of good sportsmanship along with learning the basic fundamental skills needed in order to play the game. This program has shown to have a direct correlation to increase student participation in class. It has also improved academic performance and has taught students how to self-regulate themselves in order to reduce disruptive behavior. In the spring, three elementary schools will take part in the program. Students participate in after school practices and compete on Varsity and JV teams against one another in pursuit of the end of year trophy. The program ends in late spring with an awards banquet. Players and families come together for fellowship and to acknowledge their children’s participation.
