Welcome to Palomares!


A California Distinguished and Blue Ribbon School


Friday Flag Report ~ May 22nd, 2015

Every day at Palomares students can be caught being good when they are doing something that goes above and beyond normal school expectations. On Friday of each week, one student who gets “caught” will be randomly drawn from each grade level. These students will get to have a picnic with the principal at the end of the month and their picture will be put up on the Palomares school bulletin board for everyone on campus to see.

Look who got Caught Being Good this week!


Isla was caught for being a super speller!

Luke was caught for demonstrating good manners.

Chris was caught for being easy on younger soccer players.

Makiah was caught for cleaning up the library.

Vanessa was caught for excellent group work.

Christiana was caught for being polite and showing good manners.

We are pleased to share that Palomares Elementary School has been certified as a

Green Ribbon School for 2014-2015! With an 80% diversion rate (materials diverted from landfill based on WMAC service levels), garbage generation of 2 cubic yards per week, and the completion of 44 Green Ribbon activities, our school exceeded the minimum requirements need for certification!

Thank you to Castro Valley Sanitary District for the donation of $1,740 and the new Green Ribbon banner for display!
