Dear Panther Families,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to a new school year here at the Panther Valley School District.  I am honored to lead the Panther Family and embark on a new voyage towards academic excellence and success for all students.

The beginning of each school year is always an exciting time, as it presents opportunities for new beginnings and fresh starts - new classes, new faces, new expectations, more choices and often new materials.  Your time is a time to grow, challenge yourself and enjoy the adventure of learning.

Our goal is to help your child: develop academically, through the implementation of the Pennsylvania State Standards, achieve their creative potential, explore technology, all while encouraging a love for learning.  We will strive to build a community where students will be encouraged to display good character and to make good choices, highlighting the importance of trustworthiness and respectful behavior for all.

The Panther Valley School District Staff is looking forward to a great school year filled with exciting learning activities and experiences that will help your child display “Panther Pride” by joining us in building positive relationships.

“Panther Pride '' will be strengthened by our partnerships with our community and parents.  The active participation of students, staff, parents, and community organizations are essential for our success.  I encourage you all to be engaged in your child’s educational experience and to participate in the many family activities and learning opportunities that we will offer throughout the year.

I look forward to a positive school year at Panther Valley and I look forward to working with you, throughout the school year, to provide a productive and safe learning environment that supports student success.


David McAndrew Jr.

Superintendent of Panther Valley SD
