Jackson County Schools Community Stakeholder Meeting
West Side Panther Spirit Shirt
The JCHS Athletic Department is proud to announce that we will be sponsoring a WEST SIDE Panther Spirit T-shirt. This T-Shirt will allow Middle and Elementary School Students FREE admission to the “Feeder Program” nights at our Football, Basketball, Soccer and Baseball Games. The first of these will be at our season opening football game Vs. Madison County on August 29th at Panther Stadium. On this night we would like to see everyone in the stands wearing their Westside Panther Spirit T-Shirt. It is the goal of the Athletic Department to build a true “PANTHER PRIDE” spirit amongst our West Side Feeder Schools and let everyone know that this is the “YEAR OF THE PANTHER”. Please see your school for more information about how you can purchase your Westside Panther Spirit T-Shirt. The shirts will be on-sale at open house and for the first 4 days of the school year. Get your Shirt and show your “PANTHER PRIDE”!
