Students of the Month

Student of the Month certificateEach month, Palms faculty and staff select a student from each grade who they feel excels in and out of the classroom, including for extracurricular activities.

Leadership students visit each winner's homeroom and award them a certificate, a backpack, a Palms bag, and a medal. We're very proud of our Students of the Month!
