Panther Camp

  • 2023 Panther Camp - Choose August 8th or 9th


    What is Panther Camp?  

    Panther Camp is an optional day of school orientation activities designed to give all of our new students at Mears an opportunity to learn about their new school, meet teachers, counselors, and administrators, make new friends, and learn more about important strategies for success in middle school and beyond. Panther Camp is an opportunity for students new to Mears to become familiar with their new school. Activities are designed to help build confidence and a sense of community, such as opening and closing lockers, reviewing class schedules, finding classrooms, meeting other students, procedures in the PE locker rooms, signing up for sports, extra-curricular activities, lunchroom procedures, and more. There is a $15.00 fee for Panther Camp; this fee provides a small snack and a limited edition Mears t-shirt.

    When is Panther Camp?  Panther Camp is held in August just before school starts. It is offered on two different days and prospective students should sign up for only ONE day. The camp starts at 9:00 AM and ends at 11:30 AM. Kids can be dropped off and picked up in the east side parking lot near the rear of the building. For the 2023-2024 school year, Panther Camp will be held on August 8th and 9th.
