Dear Palm Lakes Parents,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We are excited about having the opportunity to provide your children with a quality education at our outstanding school. Thanks to the efforts of our faculty, staff, students and parents, our school nurtures students to develop a love for learning! We have much work to do to increase academic achievement amongst all of our students. Our past accomplishments 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 life long 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.
The Parent/Student handbook is to be used as a reference for issues concerning the operation of the school. 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.
Mrs. A. Iglesias
