The Panther Promise is the creed by which all Edythe J. Hayes Middle School students, faculty, and staff abide by. As a school, we believe that our top priorities are to "learn daily, laugh often, lead respectfully, and live responsibly." These are not just words, but principles that guide are work, priorities, and decisions. If an action cannot be directly linked to The Panther Promise we avoid that action. Our school is based around these ideas, which help us create a focused, positive, engaging, and fun learning environment.
