Welcome to Palomares!


A California Distinguished and Blue Ribbon School


Friday Flag Report ~ May 1st, 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 finding and returning money to Mrs. Chidester.

Patrick was caught for bringing a 100% waste free lunch.

Owen was caught for spotting a spider and telling a yard duty supervisor.

Zander was caught for having a positive attitude.

Hakim was caught for volunteering to help move the computer cart.

Jaelyn was caught for finding lost hearing aids.


Grade 5- Ella

Congratulations to Mrs. Chidester, our Palomares Teacher of the Year!

We at Palomares have been fortunate to have Sandy Chidester as our Kindergarten teacher for the last 5 years. There are many reasons why she is deserving of this award. Sandy has something that great teachers possess… the ability to make every student feel good about themselves, and confident in their abilities. She is an amazing teacher in all areas, and she creates an incredible learning environment in her Palomares classroom where students feel safe and respected. She individualizes experiences and makes them personal for every student in her care. Time and time again, Sandy has demonstrated her teamwork and flexibility, which are crucial qualities for a teacher at such a small school. Sandy wears many hats as part of our Palomares team, and being an amazing teacher is only one of them. She is a member of the CCF Literacy team and leads RtI groups for older students are other ways she contributes. Poet Mark Van Doren said it best, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.”  To see Sandy guide her students into discovering the world around them is truly a joy.  It is our pleasure (as her teaching family at Palomares) to honor Sandy Chidester as our Teacher of the Year.
