Memorial DayPalms will be closed in observance of Memorial Day this Monday, May 29.

Memorial Day remembers those who died fighting in the US Armed Forces. It was established as Decoration Day in 1868, after the American Civil War. That name was used until 1882 when it became known as Memorial Day.


Common Sense Media

The web isn't just about games, social networking, and gossip. Some sites actually help kids learn to be better people and better citizens of the world!

Check out these websites, recommended by Common Sense Media, that promote social responsibility, community service, and global awareness:

Sites That Help Kids Do Good

You can find many other good websites in our Resources for Parents section.


French hornviolinJoin us for the Winds and Strings Concert on Thursday May 25, 2017, at 6:30 pm, in the Auditorium.

Our Winds & Percussion and Strings students have learned so much in two short semesters! Plus, Ms. West is retiring after more than three decades as a teacher, so you'll want to be present for her last show at Palms.


Fiesta Mexicana

Everyone is invited to a free performance at UCLA's Royce Hall on Sunday May 28, 2017, from 6:30pm to 9:00pm.

The Groupo Folklórico de UCLA will perform, and the show will also feature the UCLA debut of Ballet Folkloric Son de la Palma from Palms Middle School!

Thank You Parent Volunteers

The Volunteer Celebration was held on Friday May 19, 2017. Teachers and other Palms staff members prepared a full meal for parents who have been helping the school, the teachers, the staff, and Palms students this school year.

Dozens of thank-you notes and cards were on display, and Principal Dr. Moriuchi had a chance to express the appreciation of the staff for the many parents who help with supervision, with the morning drop-off lanes, with the Palms website, through Friends of Palms activities, and in many other ways.

Sign-ups for next year's volunteer positions and activities are already underway. Fill out the Parent Volunteer Form and get involved!
