Smile Partners will be here at Panther Lake from April 8 -12, 2013. Smile Partners is a local nonprofit organization providing dental screenings, cleanings, sealants, and temporary cavity fillings to students. There are no needles, and no teeth will be drilled on. They will bill Provider One insurance, private insurance, and also have a sliding scale fee for service for the uninsured. No students will be turned down for lack of insurance. No deductibles are collected. We are looking forward to Smile Partners come after spring break to provide their dental services to improve our oral health. Consent forms will go home in the middle of March, and should be returned no later than March 28, 2013. Dental screenings will take place on April 8, 2013, and an oral health report with treatment plan options to be sent home with your child on this day. You can decide to have the work done by signing the treatment form and returning it on April 9, 2013. No deductibles are collected.

If you are looking to donate books to Panther Lake’s library, we are in need of the following books attached here. Our students enjoy these books and the series. Any donation is appreciated. Thank you and happy reading!
The Accelerated Reader Program (AR) allows students to read books, then take comprehension tests on the book that they just read. AR comprehension tests are completed on the computer and can only be taken at school. However, students can read AR books at home and take the AR tests when they return to school.
For each AR test completed and passed, students earn AR points. Each grade level has a specific amount of points their goal is to earn for the school year. If students reach their AR points goal, they get to attend an AR party at the end of the year. To find out if a book is an AR book click the following link.
