Panther Lake’s Walk-A-Thon will be held on October 8th during the school day. The Walk-A-Thon is a fun way to raise money for field trips and special projects that happen throughout the school year. Students will be walking rain or shine, so make sure they have a jacket and comfortable walking shoes.

Pledge forms were sent home with students on September 24th. Our goal is to have every child get enough sponsors to raise at least $35. Students that raise money earn fun prizes! Questions about the Walk-A-Thon can be emailed to pantherlakepta@gmail.com.
