Adopt a Panther is a volunteer based Christmas initiative similar to Angel Tree. The program provides gifts for families who are in need during the holiday season. It also allows us to identify families at risk to further assist them throughout the year. Last year with the help of our volunteers Paschal Harvest Project provided gifts for 36 families, a total of 127 children and teens right in our pyramid. As the holiday season quickly approaches we are starting to recruit for volunteers to adopt families this year. With your help we can bring hope to families this holiday season! If you wish to volunteer or would like more information please email Maria Manks at for more details. 
Advanced Academics

Dual Credit
Attention 10th and 11th graders! It is time to start thinking about Dual Credit classes for 2016-2017. Informational packets will be available the week of December 7th. They will be available in room 231 or the main office. We will make an announcement at school to remind the student.  The completed packet will be due on Friday, March 11th. This is a firm deadline. All testing (TSI) and documentation must be completed by March 11th. Everyone must take the TSI because we will not have test scores for exemptions back in time to meet this deadline.  The first thing to take care of is applying to TCC by clicking here.  Please hold questions until you receive the packet and read all the instructions. If you still have questions, please email Ms. Gann at
