One of the most reliable predictors of school success is regular attendance. Absences for any reason result in lost instruction time. We know that students who fall behind often become discouraged learners. It is our hope that we can work together to encourage your child’s regular attendance and success at school. You will see many flags flying outside of our classrooms this year.  It means that these rooms have 100% attendance.  Our school goal is 95% attendance.  If we reach that goal, we’ll have our Jaguar flag raised outside of our office.

As we continue on the path towards a successful year, we will strive to set communication as an important goal. We urge you to keep up to date with all events happening at our school, by checking our website and our Facebook page and by reading all information sent home on blue paper, with your children.

Palo Verde has just become a Leader in Me School.  Our staff has been trained in the Seven Habits and you will begin to hear our students speaking about them at home.  We have shifted the way we think and the way we speak and we are kicking off a new parent leadership series called “Finding Your Child’s Unique Talents and Building Leaders at School and at Home”. Our first event will be on September 28.

Palo Verde is collecting donations for a Leader in Me School in Houston that had devastating damage from Hurricane Harvey.  If you would like to make a donation to this cause, please stop by the office.

Grandparents’ Day is September 8 and you are invited to join your grandchildren for lunch.  All adults who are special in the lives of our students are encouraged to attend.
