Panther Pacers – The bi-weekly Panther Pacers program begins today!  Panther Pacers is a program designed to keep kids moving during their lunch recess.  Twice a week (Tuesdays and Fridays) during the Fall and Spring months, students can walk/run/skip around a “track” to earn tokens.  Eight laps around the field is equivalent to a mile, and for every mile students complete, they are awarded a token.  Special tokens are awarded for milestones such as the 5k, 10k, half, and full marathon.  Please let your students know about this fun program and encourage them to stay active as the weather begins to cool.  Contact Nicki Blattner at pattonnicki@hotmail.com with any questions.
