Meetings

Palms Middle School logoFriends of Palms and PTSA combine their monthly meetings. They are the best way to get first-hand and up-to-date news about what's going on at Palms and what's coming up, to contribute to your child's success through your participation, to support the school, and to make sure your opinions are heard.

Meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of the month, at 8:30am or 6:30pm in the Library (see campus map). No signup or RSVP is necessary. Meetings typically last 90 minutes.

The meeting agenda often includes:

  • Introductions
  • A report from a school administrator
  • News and announcements from the Friends of Palms and PTSA presidents
  • Presentations from featured speakers
  • Funding requests from the school staff
  • Approval of the previous meeting's minutes
  • Treasurer's report
  • Committee reports
  • Discussions of upcoming events and new ideas
  • Questions and answers
