​Palmetto Families,

Welcome back everybody!  We have been busy, busy, busy getting ready for another outstanding year here at Palmetto Elementary School, because we know you're sending us your wonderful children in just a few days!!  We kick off the 2017-2018 school year on Friday, August 4, 2017.

You will need to log into your "Q Parent Connection" account to find out the class your child has been assigned.  If you need assistance with signing up for "Q Parent Connection" our Community Aide, will be back at work starting Aug. 1st to assist you during the hours of 9am – 3:30pm.  Every family needs to be on "Q Parent Connection".

Our Kindergarten Orientation is tomorrow, Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 5:30pm in our school cafeteria.  It’s important for all of our Kinder parents to attend orientation with our Kinder Team.  This will ensure your child has a smooth transition into Kindergarten.

Make plans now to attend our Back to School Night" on Thursday, August 10. 

  • K – 2nd Grade:  required to attend 4:50 – 6:00pm
  • 3rd-5th Grade:  required to attend 5:50 – 7:00

The schedule for Back to School Night is:

  • 4:30 - 5:00 - Admin. address K-2 Parents
  • 5:00 - 5:25 -  Grades K-2 Session 1
  • 5:30 - 5:55 - Grades K-2 Session 2
  • 5:30 - 6:00 - Admin. address 3-5 Parents
  • 6:00 - 6:25 - Grades 3-5 Session 1
  • 6:30 - 6:55 - Grades 3-5 Session 2

One of the most important components of an exceptional school like Palmetto Elementary is the partnership between home and school.  Palmetto has a strong tradition of supportive, hard-working families.  Throughout the year we will have the opportunity to develop our partnership in a wide variety of ways.  Families can join PTA, volunteer in the classroom, help in the library, attend School Site Council meetings, or participate in one of the many other events or activities that make our school a special place for our children to learn.  I am looking forward to another year with our incredible Palmetto family.

Yours in Education,
Adele Thomas, Principal
