    Mrs. Lauren Harper - Elementary Principal


    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. I am so excited for another great year! I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable summer.  I would like to welcome the new families that have recently joined the Panama district.  I am also looking forward to seeing familiar faces and hearing all about your summer adventures! The entire staff along with the administration have been working hard this summer to ensure a great start to the school year.         

    Getting back into a routine can be quite difficult after the summer break.  Here are a few tips to ease the transition.

    • Talk to your child about the positives of going to school
    • Establish a consistent nighttime routine
    • Go over bus safety
    • Go over the weekly schedule

    Communication between the school and families is highly valued and key to your child’s success. I encourage you to reach out to us if a need arises. Also, with any important information that will help ensure a successful year.   We are lucky to have such highly effective and dedicated teachers here at PCS.  I encourage you to check your student’s folder for any important information coming home from the school. 

    As you are aware, we are paying close attention to our transportation routes and student drop-off locations.  Please make every effort to remain as consistent as possible.  Consistency is not only helpful to the office, but also to your student.  In the event of a change, please contact Mrs. Sperry, 782-4414 by 1 pm.

    I’m looking forward to a very positive and productive year! Please check the school calendar and our Facebook page for important dates and family events to attend.  The PFA puts together wonderful activities for our families.
