The Provencal Panthers started off their school year Monday, Aug. 8 with an Open House and student registration event. This year will mark Principal Mary Yount’s fourth year at the helm of the 460 student Pre-K-8th grade school, a perennial top scorer in the district’s academic and athletic standings. This year’s Student Performance Score (SPS) for the school is 91.3, an unofficial grade as additional bonus points, if any, have not been awarded yet. It’s an impressive feat that Yount said reflects the high level of parental support she and her teachers receive from the Provencal community.
In addition to top-notch academics, the school sponsors a 4-H and FCA chapter as well as a full range of boy’s and girl’s sports and cheerleading.
