Comments from Student Participants
  • I am most proud of being in Panther Club because
    I get to share my ideas with people I don't know.
    - 3rd Grade Student
  • From being in Panther Club I have learned that it
    takes a lot of hard work and planning to complete
    tasks. - 5th Grade Student
  • From being in Panther Club I have learned that if
    you offer friendship and kindness to others they
    will offer it to you. - 3rd Grade Student
  • A rose in my committee is that we had a lot of
    ideas. A thorn in my committee is that we need
    to listen and think more about others and less
    about ourselves. - 5th Grade Student
