• Welcome to the Panthers First Program Homepage

  • Connection is Key!

    This is our founding principle for the Panthers First program at Park Rapids Area Schools. 

    Students and alumni are more likely to succeed when they feel connected to their school and community. School and community connection is the belief by students that adults and other students in the school care about their learning as well as about them as individuals. School and community connectedness requires positive adult/student relationships and physical as well as emotional safety.

    Have questions or want to know how to get involved in Panthers First? Feel free to contact the Panthers First Committee by Email or call 218-237-6442.
