Welcome to Palomares!


A California Distinguished and Blue Ribbon School


Dear Palomares Families,

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year. I am looking forward to being a part of the Palomares community.

I am proud to serve a community that has a strong reputation in our district for their commitment to the success of each student and where a close knit community takes such pride in their school. I am looking forward to getting to know your children and you. Together with the wonderful staff, we will build upon the great work that has been happening at Palomares.

I believe in ensuring a strong home and school partnership and working together to provide our Palomares students with a positive educational experience. Your children are my priority and I am committed to doing my best everyday to support them and you in their educational experience at Palomares.

I am excited to learn more about Palomares and how I can enrich our school community. I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to our first day of school together. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 26, 2015. Students are encouraged to arrive to school by 8:00 am and classroom instruction will begin at 8:10 am.  
Just a reminder that registration is on August 19th from 8 am - 3 pm.
Thank you for your warm welcome and support. The staff and I welcome you to the new school year.  If you have any questions, ideas or concerns, please come talk with me. My door is always open!  Let's work together and make this an amazing school year for our students.

Palomares Principal/Coordinator of Special Projects
