Greetings, Palmer Parents!
Happy Monday morning! I hope that you and our Palmer Bear had a great weekend. We are in the second week of school and everyone has settled into their routine. I really appreciate your support in following our procedures. It helped us establish an organized and calm environment for our students. This week we will begin our normal routine of parents eating lunch with their child. If you or a family member plans to eat lunch with your child, please be sure you have a valid photo I.D. and sign in the front office for your visitor’s badge. We have a special parent and child table so that you are able to enjoy lunch with your child.
Have you activated your Family Access account? Family access is convenient and easy to use. If you need information on how to activate your Family Access account, please contact our ADA clerk, Barbara Shaver at (281) 634-4776.
Please remember it is important to complete the Online Student Verification. The Online Student Verification is available for you to update the following information in Family Access until 9/13/16:
New Online Gifted and Talented Referral is open in Family Access now through September 30, 2016. To submit a referral for your child, please login to your Family Access account and submit the referral from custom forms. If you are not able to submit through Family Access, you may still refer your child by contacting our school counselor, Katrina Scott, at (281) 634-4760. She will be able to assist you. Click here for more information on our district’s Gifted and Talented program.
Save the date. Our Fall Open House will be held Thursday, September 15, 2016. Look for more information regarding Open House in this week’s Tuesday Folder. Since we are now in the second week of school, your child will more than likely begin to receive homework assignments this week. Make sure you are checking your child’s daily folder or agenda for assignments. In addition, your child’s teacher should have emailed you the weekly newsletter this past Friday. If you did not receive it, please email your child’s teacher or me to request a copy.
Be sure you join the Palmer Parent text messaging group to receive instant messages about upcoming events, school closures, emergencies, etc. by texting @palmerpa to the number 81010 on your mobile device. Please know that data charges may apply. Also, follow us on twitter @PalmerES_bears.
Please be reminded that next Monday, September 5th, is a school holiday. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 6th. If you have a question, concern, or want to make a general comment, please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a fantastic week.
Mrs. Clay, Principal
