On Valentine's Day Student Council members deliver the roses to the recipient during the last period of the day.
18: Let's go Panthers | LET'S GO! | What better way to end the school year than with a class competition! The Panther Stake-Out occurs after school on a Friday in May (closer to the end of the school year). Each class compete in the events. There is a restriction on as to the number of events a student can participate in. Since there is a limit , more class members are needed to fill each team per event. Staff members volunteer to officiate and judge the events. Classes receive points for how their team places in an event. Points are awarded as follows: 1st Place- 5 points. 2nd Place- 3 points, 3rd Place- 2 points, and 4th Place- 1 point. At the end of the Stake-Out, the class with the most total points is the winner. While the outside events are taking place students, participants and spectators alike, can get free food and drink. The events for the panther stake out include: football, 4x100 relay, water balloon toss, obstacle course, tug-of-war, three legged race, baseball bat relay, hula hoop timed relay, and balloon sit.
