Dear Palmetto Family,

Summer vacations provide a time for rest and relaxation.  I hope you are rejuvenated and ready for the start of a new year at Palmetto Elementary.  As the beginning of the new school year approaches, I look forward to opening day and meeting all of our Palmetto Tigers and families.  When our students return to school on Thursday, August 7, 2014, we will have a great opportunity to make a difference in their lives as we establish a rich and stimulating learning environment.

 

School will be from 8:25 am to 2:58 pm for students in 1st-5th grade.  Our minimum day is every WEDNESDAY.  Students in grades 1st -5th grade dismiss at 12:35 pm EVERY Wednesday.  Students in the morning session of kindergarten will begin at 8:25 am and dismiss at 12:21pm.  Students in the afternoon session of kindergarten will begin at 11:00 am and dismiss at 2:45 pm.  Students in the staggered session of kindergarten who are in the morning group will begin at 9:15am and dismiss at 1:10pm.  Students in the staggered session of kindergarten who are in the afternoon group will begin at 11:00 am and dismiss at 2:45pm. 

 

Class lists will be posted in front of the school beginning on Monday, July 28, 2014.  Teachers have taken a lot of time to ensure that our classes are balanced and put together for what's best for students.  There's a lot that goes into creating classes.  At this time, we are not moving students from one teacher to another.  If you feel your child needs a different teacher, you can come into the office and fill out a form and we'll look at the "Request to Change Teacher" forms after the first two weeks of school.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter. 

 

Please join us for Back to School Night on Thursday, August 14 from 5:30pm – 7:00pm in our school cafeteria.  I'll be meeting with parents in the cafeteria at 5:30pm and then beginning at 6:00pm, you'll visit you're students' class.   At "Back to School" night teachers will go over what your child will be expected to learn this school year and everything else you'll need to know to ensure your child has a successful year at Palmetto.   

 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new school year our front office is opened 7:30 am – 4:30 pm.  We are looking forward to another successful year of learning at Palmetto Elementary.

 

Yours in Education,

 

Adele Thomas
