Greetings, Palmer Parents!
We hope that you enjoyed your weekend. We had a busy week last week. We completed the Boosterthon Fun Run, the Palmer Bear Bolt, we honored our crossing guard, Thomas Penson, during our Veterans Day Program this past Friday and we had a great time at our planting party Saturday. In this Monday Morning Message, read about our Palmer Bear Garden, last week's Palmer Papa Bears on Patrol, October Students of the Months, Grandparent Luncheon, Toys for Tots and Upcoming Events.
Remember at Palmer Elementary, Hustle and Heart, Set us Apart! Have a great week.

Palmer Bear Garden
This past Saturday, with help from Lake Olympia Garden Club member and Master Gardener, Tracy Pereira , our Palmer Bears, parents, and staff members were able to create four garden beds for our campus. We learned how to create a raised garden bed using cardboard boxes. It was a wonderful learning experience for all. We planted all sorts of vegetables and the weather was perfect for planting. We had so many volunteers, even a Boosterthon rep attended and provided music for us to enjoy while planting. The “Hustle and Heart” spirit of Palmer Elementary was very evident. We want to thank Palmer's Garden Club Sponsors, Student Council Sponsors and staff members, Ms. Urich, Ms. Godfrey, Ms.Centeno, Ms. Chavez, Ms. Dressen, Ms. Kahla, Mr. Naranjo, and Mr. Davis. Thank you to Tracy Pereira, for sharing her talents with our Palmer Bears. Thank you to Lake Olympia Garden Club, Master Gardener Association, and Home Depot for your donations. Thank you to the Palmer Bears and their parents for attending and participating and a huge thank you to Palmer Grandparent, Alma Swenson, for planting the seed with the Lake Olympia Garden Club and "making our garden grow." This event would not have occurred without you.
Palmer Papa Bears on Patrol
We want to send a huge thank you to Mr. Kerr, Mr. Nolasco, and Mr. Preciado. We enjoyed having you on campus.
