We are dedicated to the growth and development of the whole child, empowering students to be future ready. We do that by: Engaging - Empowering - Preparing - Respecting --Every Panther, Every Day.

We value our great community and appreciate your support.  Together we can create an outstanding school culture.  We would like to encourage everyone to join our Parent Teacher Association.  Our PTA provides valuable support for our school throughout the year.
