Excitement is in the air at Palo Verde as students are rehearsing for holiday shows and concerts, and are preparing for leadership roles for Gingerbread Night, in addition to working hard each day on academics

Palo Verde is the best-kept secret in Casa Grande. We strive to equip our students with the skills and knowledge they will need to be successful, not only today but also in the future. Walking the hallways and visiting classrooms each day reminds me how wonderful our Palo Verde family is.  I hear teachers teaching with passion, using every strategy possible to help their students grow. I see students actively engaged in learning and working cooperatively with each other to solve complex problems. I feel the joy in the building because we know we are the gatekeepers of a successful life. Every school knows this, but it is always great to have a reminder: Together We Make a Difference! You are our students' first teachers and we proudly take on the responsibility to give your students more than we ever could imagine in instruction, love, and accountability. Please join us as we work to prepare our leaders to be exceptional citizens! ________________________________________________________________

Schools are closed for the holidays from December 24-January 6.  School resumes on Monday, January 7.  Our Palo Verde family would like to wish you and your family a happy holiday and a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year! ________________________________________________________________

All parents are encouraged to consider making a Tuition Tax Credit donation to Palo Verde Elementary School.  Arizona State Law allows you to give up to $400 to a public school and receive a $400 credit on your taxes. If your tax bill is $500, and you give $400 to Palo Verde, your tax bill is reduced to $100. You can find more information on how you can make your donation on the District website page, www.cgleem.k12.az.us.  These donations are used to pay for field trips, assemblies, guest speakers, registration fees, and after school programs. Donations are accepted by check or by credit card. Please help our students become well-rounded citizens who will make our community stronger.
