• An important part of the culture at Pate's Creek Elementary School is to help students develop strong character qualities and respect for themselves and others. One of the ways we do this is by having the students learn and recite the Panther Creek at the beginning of each school day.

    The Panther Creed
    (REVISED 2017)

    I will always do my best.

    I will practice empathy, because I respect myself and others.

    I will keep my hands, feet, and objects to myself.

    I will take responsibility for my actions.

    I will allow the teacher to teach and others to learn.

    I will always do my best to be my best.

    Each day that I enter Pate’s Creek, I will ROAR.

    I will be RESPONSIBLE and take OWNERSHIP of my 

    actions, behavior and every educational choice that I make.

    I will have a great ATTITUDE and be READY for whatever comes my way.

    I am a panther, a Pate's Creek Panther...ROAR!!!!!
