Welcome Ms. Leah Hayes


    Ms. Leah Hayes - Elementary Principal


    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Families,

    I am thrilled to welcome all of you to the 23-24 School Year! It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the new Elementary Principal, and I am truly excited to be a part of such an amazing school community.

    Over the summer, I had the privilege of meeting many students, staff members, and families. I am eagerly looking forward to getting to know even more of you in the coming weeks. The dedication and commitment I’ve witnessed from our students, staff and the entire school community have already shown what a special place Panama Central School is. 

    This year, my primary goal is to foster a collaborative environment where students, staff, families, and the community work together to ensure the success of each and every student. We are dedicated to nurturing not only the academic growth of our students but also their social and emotional development.

    I strongly believe that the key to a successful educational journey is open communication and active involvement from all of us. I encourage you to maintain open lines of communication with your student’s teacher and the rest of our staff. By joining organizations like Parents for Panama, you can play a role in shaping the amazing experiences we aim to provide for our students. 

    As we begin this new chapter together, let’s strive to make this year one of inspiration, achievement, and memorable experiences. Each student’s journey is unique, and by working together, we can provide the guidance and support necessary for them to reach their highest potential!

    Ms. Leah Hayes
