Attributes of the Panther Promise Project

Our student's defense-of-learning project is centered around our Panther Promise.  As we researched various portraits of a graduate, we realized that our focus for our students was simple.  We want our students to

  • Learn Daily
  • Laugh Often
  • Lead Respectfully
  • Live Responsibly

This is uniquely Edythe J. Hayes Middle School, as the Panther Promise is our guideline for success.  Under each statement are three attributes for our students to orgranize their work and artifacts they collect during their middle school years.

In addition, the Panther Promise Project has been aligned with Fayette County Public School's Portrait of Graduate.  This Protrait paints a picture of the habits, attitudes, and atributes of a FCPS high school graduate.
