BVSD 360/Panther Pride provides a leadership opportunity for upperclassmen to act as mentors and role models for the Boulder High School community with an emphasis on support and guidance for the freshman class. In addition, they serve as ambassadors for Boulder High School to the community at large.
Although the responsibilities of Panther Pride members are varied and school wide, a large portion of their commitment will be in Freshmen Seminar. Freshmen Seminar provides the venue for members to develop, practice, and hone their leadership skills. They are responsible for designing and implementing activities and projects that promote academic, social, and community success within the freshman class. The relationships developed during the program strengthen the freshmen class's connection to Boulder High School.
Beyond their work with the freshman class, they provide a critical mass to promote and support community building throughout BHS. Their commitments include being school ambassadors for parents during Back to School Night, guiding tours for prospective freshmen and their families during BHS Showcase Night, leading and aiding freshmen during Cram Fest before their finals, and providing a consistent model for all BHS students to strive toward.
Panther Pride provides members with authentic leadership experiences, requiring them to practice and develop skills that will prepare them for future leadership opportunities. Additionally, Panther Pride fosters a student's ability to contribute positively to the culture and climate of Boulder High School.
