Welcome to another fantastic school year! We have so much to celebrate at Palmer Way School, and it is because of the support from our families, our highly qualified teachers, and the committed and engaged students that we are so successful. We are all partners in the educational journey of children. As a team, we strive for excellence in academics and in the social – emotional development of children. We have all known what a great school we have in our community and it is even better to know that the Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), has recognized Palmer Way School as an Honor Roll school for the 2017 - 2018 California Honor Roll.
As principal, I’m honored to serve as the instructional leader and I am committed to ensuring our school maintains high academic standards by providing a rigorous academic program that addresses the individual needs of each student. Our school has a dedicated staff who is also committed to the success of our students and works collaboratively to provide the most effective instructional learning experiences. Palmer Way is a great place to learn and grow, offering a relevant and rigorous curriculum based in the Common Core Standards and project-based learning. Technology is also used extensively by staff and students. The skills of creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking are a focus in each classroom preparing the students for the challenges of the 21st century.
I firmly believe that parent and community involvement, as well as communication and collaboration, are essential to the overall success of our school. Palmer Way has a new and growing Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA is the heart of the school and a vital link between parents, teachers and community members. Through our programs and activities, the Palmer Way Elementary PTA helps to meet the needs of children in our school. Volunteers are greatly appreciated and we would love for you to join our efforts. Please visit the school and inquire how you can GET INVOLVED.
Palmer Way is in our third year of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) implementation. PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. Our PBIS team meets monthly to identify challenge areas and come up with strategies to improve student behavior. We are very excited to bring this approach to Palmer Way School.
I feel so fortunate to be a part of the Palmer Way Family! Working together as a team, Palmer Way teachers, staff, and parents do whatever it takes to ensure the academic and personal success of all our students. High student achievement and outstanding character, alongside school connectedness and safety continue to be our top priorities.
