Panthers Announce New Schools And Education Initiatives
SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment today announced three schools and education initiatives that will take place across South Florida throughout the 2011-12 NHL season. The Florida Panthers will bring a “Healthy Habits” assembly show to multiple elementary schools across South Florida, while also supporting a Teacher of the Month initiative and a 3.0 Program for students who succeed in the classroom.
 
In partnership with Publix, the Panthers “Healthy Habits” shows will educate students on the sport of hockey and the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. Students will have a surprise visit from team mascot Stanley C. Panther during the show, as well as the chance to win numerous Florida Panthers prizes in a raffle drawing. Schools can schedule a “Healthy Habits” show by visiting www.floridapanthers.com/healthyhabits
 
The Panthers and Publix have also launched a Teacher of the Month program – a five-month initiative that will recognize educators in the South Florida area for their accomplishments and impact on students. From November through March of 2012, one teacher will be awarded the honor each month with a surprise visit from Stanley C. Panther, a commemorative certificate and a set of tickets to a Panthers home game, where they will be recognized for their contribution to the community. Teachers can be nominated by visiting www.floridapanthers.com/teacherofthemonth. All teachers currently employed by a school (kindergarten, elementary, middle school, high school, vocational, special education) in the South Florida region are eligible to be nominated. College, graduate and student teachers are not eligible for the award.
 
The team has also launched the Florida Panthers 3.0 Program, an initiative to recognize students in the South Florida area for their academic achievements from December until the end of the school year in 2012. Any student that has a grade point average of 3.0 or better (kindergarten, elementary, middle school, high school, special education) in the South Florida area is eligible to register. Each Panthers 3.0 Program member will be rewarded with a free ticket to a Panthers game on Friday, Feb. 3, Sunday, Feb. 19 or Tuesday, March 13, where they will be recognized for their achievements. The students will also have a chance to win prizes, including player-autographed merchandise. Additionally, the school with the most enrolled students in the 3.0 Program will win the Panthers Cup Trophy. Students can enroll in the program by visiting www.floridapanthers.com/3.0program.
