To our Paloma Families
Welcome to all of our returning and new students as well as their families to Paloma Elementary School! I am excited to begin the another year here as principal. Working together with the amazing staff, wonderful families, and outstanding students at Paloma, we will make the 2017-18 school year another great one! It is my belief that all students have the capacity to learn and that it is up to us, as educators, to ensure that they have all of the tools in place to be successful. It is my goal to continue to foster an environment where our students feel secure and one in which they feel safe to take academic risks in their pursuit of excellence.
Our goal is that all students will continue to meaningfully increase their academic knowledge in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. Education is very important to the future of our students and at Paloma we will continue to strive to help them become active, inquiring, life-long learners who will be prepared for college and career, as well as for global citizenship.
Our teachers employ best instructional practices which include differentiated instruction at all academic levels. This year, our teachers will continue to implement the Common Core State Standards in all curricular areas.
· Students demonstrate respect and responsibility while putting forth their best effort toward their educational learning experience.
· Teachers and staff set and implement standards-based learning goals and monitor results in order to differentiate instruction to meet the individual needs of learners.
· Parents partner with the school to enhance their child’s academic growth and strength of character.
I look forward to another fun and exciting year!
