Dear Palm Lakes Parents,
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are very proud and excited to welcome you and your children to the Palm Lakes family. We are here to provide your children with a quality education at our extraordinary “A” school. Our school has been serving the Palm Lakes community since 1971. We are proud to offer a variety of programs to our students to help them meet their needs and challenge their young minds. Among the programs being offered at Palm Lakes are: Extended Foreign Language, Special Education, English Language Leaners, Gifted and Pre-K Special Education programs. Our accomplishments throughout the years prove that working together can guarantee your child’s academic, social, and emotional success.
As we begin a new school year, we encourage each of you to evaluate the importance of creating lifelong learners. We must emphasize the benefits of hard work and commitment to our youngsters and instill in them a love for learning, as well as a love for reading. Children need to understand at a young age that school is a priority and that the family values and supports the school community. We want your children to be proud of their school and happy to be a part of it.
We encourage each of you to become involved in your child’s education. Come to parent workshops. Join the PTA. Volunteer in a classroom. Read aloud to your child. Chaperone a field trip. The task of teaching our youngsters needs to be a shared responsibility between the home and the school. We look forward to working with our students and families during this school year to make our students the best they can be academically and to help them become productive citizens of our society.
We encourage parents and students to become familiar with our policies and cooperate with the school personnel to enforce them. If you ever need clarification with a policy, please call the school at (305) 823-6970 and give us the opportunity to assist you.
