Dear Palmer Community,

It is hard to believe that we are winding down the 2016-2017 school year!  This time of the year includes a few more state and district assessments, Prom, Graduation, the Academic Awards Ceremony, assemblies, and many other events that are important to the Palmer community.  Spring is the time when we celebrate the hard work of our students.  They have the opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime.  I hope that you can participate in many of these with us.  Please note the events and dates listed in this newsletter.

The annual Palmer Beautification Day will be held on Saturday, May 20th.  This day is dedicated to "sprucing up" our school.  Please join other parents, students, staff, alumni and community members in cleaning, painting, planting flowers and fixing up our campus.  This is a great opportunity to get involved and meet other members of the Palmer High School community.  We want our pride to show!

Spring is always hectic as we complete our standardized testing, and our regular academic schedule is disrupted due to the various tests.  It challenges all of us to keep the students focused and moving forward with their coursework.  We appreciate your help in reminding your child about the importance of attending every class, completing their daily homework assignments, and staying academically focused until the end of the semester.  As the weather gets warmer, our students tend to get a bit of spring fever.  However, the last weeks of school are no less important than the first weeks, and every student needs to attend to their studies with the same dedication and energy as when they began the year. 

Thanks for your help!

I appreciate everything you do for our students and for the Palmer community.

All my best, Lara Disney, Principal
