Panther Place

The Place to Be After School!


The Panther Place program is an after-school program for students in the Elizabethtown Independent School District in grades 1 – 5. The program is funded through United Way and the school district. The program operates each school day, Monday through Thursday, from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm. Students are transported by bus from their school to the Valley View Education Center. Each afternoon, participants receive nutritious snacks, homework assistance, and also participate in a wide variety of fun enrichment activities.

If you would like more information about the Panther Place Program, please contact the Director, Kathy Francis at 270-769-4628.

Many thanks to United Way for their generous and continuing support for our program!
