Palo Verde is home to bright and intelligent students AND teachers and staff. We strive to equip our students with the skills and knowledge they will need to be successful, not only today but also as future adults. 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 learn. I see students actively engaged in the 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 to prepare our future leaders to be exceptional citizens!

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 reading all the information sent home on blue paper, with your children.                                            We are inspiring a passion for learning and leading! We are Casa Grande’s best kept secret! Please click on the link to find out why.
