    Message from the PTO

    The Palmer Yearbook needs your help!  Have you taken photos at any of the recent school performances, class parties, or Palmer Spirit or Dress up Days?  We'd love to include them in the yearbook!  Please share photos of your Palmer Bear by downloading the RePlayit App by Jostens to quickly and easily share your photos taken with your camera phone.  Or email them to us at   Can't wait to see your captures!

    Message from the Principal

    Happy Monday Morning! I hope that you and our Palmer Bear enjoyed your weekend. I am pleased to share that we have collected 94% of our Boosterthon pledges.  The homeroom classes that have collected 100% of their pledges thus far are Mrs. Kahla, Mr. Marquardt, Mrs. Mustachia, Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Chavez, Mrs. Koski, Ms. Abraham, Ms. Bruington, Ms. Hudson, Mrs. Fogle, and Mrs. Smith.  These classes have earned a pizza party sponsored by our PTO.  Our goal is to collect 100% of our pledge donations. If your child has sponsors who have not yet paid their pledge, please encourage them to submit their pledge money.  During Tuesday’s morning announcements, I will announce the top pledge earners from Kinder through 2nd and 3rd through 5th.  These students will each have a day as the campus principal. 

    We have seen an increase in the amount of students going home with Fevers of 100 degrees or higher and/or vomiting.  In an effort to keep your child and other Palmer Bears healthy, please keep your child at home if he or she is sick.  We had a high number of absences this past week.

    Save the Date.  Our Open House is Tuesday, February 28th from 6:30 pm-7:30 pm.  We are opening our doors and allowing you to explore Palmer Elementary.  You will be able to visit your child’s classroom, the book fair, our Literacy Lab, and we will have various tables set up in the cafeteria for you to visit.  Please be on the lookout for our Open House flyer in this week’s Tuesday folder.   

    We are entering the 8th week of our 3rd Nine Weeks grading period.  Please be sure you are tracking your child’s progress by logging into Family Access and viewing your child’s grades.  If you have not already done so, please replenish your child’s supplies including pencils, crayons, colored pencils, hand sanitizer, notebook paper etc. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher to see what is specifically needed for your child. 

    Attention 2nd-5th grade parents, we are encouraging our 2nd-5th grade students to bring their mobile devices to school so that they are able to gain access to MyOn and other learning digital resources that are available. If you allow your child to bring his or her device to school, please know that it is his or her responsibility to keep it safe in his or her possession and the device can only be used for instructional purposes.

    I am looking forward to our Palmer Bears returning to school tomorrow.  If you have a question, concern, or just want to share information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Mrs. Clay, Principal
