    Healthy Schools Flu Vaccination on Monday, November 6th  

    Healthy Schools will offer Flu Vaccinations at Palmer Elementary this school year.  They will be on campus November 6th between 11:45 am and 2:45 pm to vaccinate students.  If you would like for your child to receive the flu vaccination, please be sure to complete the Vaccine Consent Form that will be in this week’s Tuesday Folder and return it to the school nurse by October 23rd.   We will not vaccinate any student without parent’s consent. 


    Palmer Bear Bolt on Thursday, November 9th

    Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the Palmer Bear Bolt! It’s a 9-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on October 31stStudents are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite medieval or fairy tale character on that day.  Families will then gather pledges for every lap your child runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Bear Bolt on November 9th.  With our big goal of raising $25,000 for technology, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun. Students will also experience an amazing character theme, CASTLE QUEST! an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters.  Donations will go toward purchasing student laptops and to the entire 9-day experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your child at the Palmer Bear Bolt on November 9th during your child’s grade level outclass! Thank you for your support!

    We are super excited to kick off the program, Palmer Papa Bear on Patrol this school year.  One of the purposes of this program is to give Palmer Dads an opportunity to volunteer in schools.  We will hold an orientation meeting this Wednesday at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria.  During the meeting, you will learn the benefits of the program for your child and other Palmer Bears, how the program will work and how you can sign up to patrol on one of our designated Wednesdays.  Please know that you must be 2017-2018 registered volunteer in order to participate in Palmer Papa Bear on Patrol.  You will not be able to participate if you have not been cleared as a parent volunteer.  During the orientation, we will have computers available for you to complete your parent volunteer registration. We hope that you are able to attend.
