Message from the Principal
Reflective of the popular reality show known as Duck Dynasty, Parkway High School or rather “Panther Dynasty” is moving into Season Four compelled to inspire South Bossier Youth toward excellence! Like Duck Dynasty, “Panther Dynasty” values hard-work, democratic values, sound moral character, family continuity, and fun! Understanding that the word dynasty connotes power and domination, “Panther Dynasty” has concentrated efforts to dominate in five key areas related to intellectual and social growth: academics, athletics, safety and civility, service, and character. As we enter the 2013-2014 school-year, our vision and passion to move still closer to conditions of “excellence” within these five key areas is fueled by a spirit of competition and drive to achieve that which has not yet been achieved. Within “Panther Dynasty,” we recognize the many challenges ahead as we enter the arena of educational reform marked by heightened levels of accountability, direct competition with private, charter, and virtual schools, as well as the task of maintaining public confidence in public school education; however, we feel confident that we can overcome these challenges by recommitting ourselves to the shared vision and by sustaining a prevailing attitude of excellence within our school community. As in the past, I urge all to embrace this opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves and to be an active participant in becoming what we are meant to become!
