Principal's Message


Welcome to Palomares Elementary School - A Small School with Great Spirit!

It is my privilege to serve this school community.  I am proud of our rich history and our dedicated school staff and  actively engaged community which makes our school a very special place for all students.  
Palomares Elementary School's goal is to provide an education of excellence that instills a passion for life-long learning while preparing our students for the challenges of tomorrow.

We support and embrace our district's Core Values:

* Our schools are safe spaces for all.
* Our commitment to equity ensures that our educational system is responsive to all students regardless of personal and social
* All students, families and staff are valued and treated with respect and dignity.

Spreading Our Wings
We are spreading our hawk wings at Palomares! As part of our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support), you can help your child "spread their wing" by reviewing our expectations and helping them memorize them.  You can also practice our school song at home! Together, we can ensure that all of our students have a safe and successful school year.
