At the Paine Elementary Panther Palooza celebration last week, students and their families enjoyed games, prizes, and great food. The event was a community affair, with McGarvin and La Quinta students volunteering their time to ensure that parents could enjoy the event with their children. School Board Member Bob Harden also joined in on the fun.
As always, the highlight was Principal Martinez hovering precariously over a tank of water. Sporting a stylish pink shower cap and full suit, he was overconfident that he would stay dry; egging students on to hit the target. It didn’t take long, though, for him to feel the cold water as he took the plunge!
