Panther Academy, dedicated to our youngest Panthers, opened its doors for the 2012/2013 school year to all of the Elizabethtown Independent School District's preschool and kindergarten students. The faculty and staff will be led by Kelly Graham, and all are committed to providing a nurturing environment for our youngest Panther students.
Customer service will be evident to all with services such as Breakfast at no charge for ALL of its students. Each classroom is equipped with interactive whiteboards and document cameras to engage students and prepare them for the 21st Century.
