Dear Palmer Way Families,
I am pleased to welcome you to the 2020-21 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Palmer Way this year and welcome back all of our returning families! I am honored to be your principal for 7 years now. Our goal at Palmer Way is to work together to provide our students with a rich learning environment so your child is ready to be successful in their educational future. My vision, as the principal, is to ALWAYS put kids first! My belief is that all students can learn. My hope is that all children will LOVE school and feel nurtured in a learning environment that is positive, safe, caring, as well as a fun place to learn and grow.
Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community. This is MORE important now more than ever. Without the support of parent contributions through our extraordinary PTA, we would not be able to accomplish all that we do here at Palmer Way. Please consider joining so that we can continue to maintain our reputation for excellence.
Although this year looks different than any other year, we are dedicated to providing your child(ren) a memorable, interactive, engaging distance learning experience. In the Palmer Way spirit, we pride ourselves on being Kind. Now more than ever it is so important to be kind to one another and in our community. Although it looks a little bit different now, I challenge you to be thinking about ways you can be kind.
Please make sure to take advantage of all of the avenues of communication that we offer. To start, the National School Website is full of great information and we urge you to check the website often for news and updates. Make sure to check your email and Class Dojo regularly! We send the vast majority of our communications home via email, PEACHJAR and ClassDojo. Your teacher can give you more information on how to sign up. How to sign up for Peachjar. Our PTA also utilizes Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to share information about upcoming activities.
We hope you will find Palmer Way School is truly a place where learning is joyful and children delight in coming to school. To all of my fellow Panthers, let’s make it a great year! Please stay safe and enjoy the last weekend of summer!
See you ‘virtually’ very soon,
