Ms. Rodriguez nominated Jimmalyz, and said, "She is an exemplary student who rarely misses school. She takes pride in the work that she does and is the type of student that offers to help other struggling students. She is very much aware of the power of kindness. She has extended acts of kindness to the entire class and is an A student as well!"

Ms. Peticolas nominated Nathaneal, stating, "Nathaneal exhibits kindness and empathy everyday.  It is rare to find a student who is so caring about their fellow students and their teachers without fail.  He doesn't ever let a bad day get in his way.  Additionally, Nathaneal takes responsibility for assisting others in class, and he's willing to ask for help when he needs it."

Congratulations, to our students of the week!

Listen up Panthers,  I've got an important announcement from PBIS.  Starting this month, you will be able to nominate your teachers for Teacher of the month!  Which of your teachers embodies the core values of be respectful, be responsible, be ready?
On Friday, you will be able to vote for this month's teacher at lunch.  Ms. Linda Salas, our campus social worker, will be on hand to take your nominations, so be sure to nominate an educator you feel is respectful, responsible, and ready!

Boys Freshman basketball team defeated the Bowie Bears on  Saturday Morning by a score  of 50-49. Dylan Mauldin made a 3 pointer with 17 seconds left in regulation to give the Panthers the victory over the Bears.
