Many thanks to all those Panther Student Council members who volunteered at Parent Teacher Conferences!  We appreciate your willingness to help out on your day off of school!  Special thanks, also, to those members and their families who volunteered with the Tsalteshi Trails Association to be “zombies” on the trails during the annual Spook Night 5K event!

Student Council would like to thank the Jolly Rogers Taste of Paradise ice cream truck for their donation of ice cream treats for our October Activity Night, as well as Coca Cola of the Kenai Peninsula for their donation of prizes for the event, and our awesome Alaska Wildlife Troopers for hosting their ice bucket change game and providing prizes for that, too!  Many thanks to each of those businesses/organizations for their strong support of young people and involvement in our school activities!  We appreciate you!
