Panther Days was held last week at Onamia High School. Students took part in a number of activities throughout the week. This year for Panther Days, Mrs. Edmondson’s English students created fleece tie blankets that will be donated to Children’s Minnesota. Children’s Minnesota is one of the largest freestanding pediatric health systems in the United States with two hospitals, 12 primary care clinics, six rehabilitation and nine specialty care sites. It is also the only health system and Level I Trauma Center in Minnesota to provide care to children from before birth through young adulthood. Students worked together to cut and tie fabric into beautiful blankets that will be given to kids at the hospital. “We were able to utilize teamwork in every class and also learn a little bit about giving back our time, talents and treasures,” said Mrs. Edmondson. A total of 14 blankets will be donated to Children’s Hospital.
"Panther Days was a blast of innovation in teaching and learning, the initiative was a great experience for both students and staff, and we look forward to building on the Panther Days concept again next school year and beyond!!" JJ Vold Superintendent.
