This week is the last week to turn in plastic water bottles for Martha’s Village! Please bring in all your plastic bottles by Friday, May 18th. We will have a small Preschool assembly to give our donation to Martha's Village so that all our students have the opportunity to see what an impact they have made on our community. The final date for this event will be announced soon. Thank you to everyone who has donated this year. We greatly appreciate it.

This year, Palm Valley School will host the first annual Flapjacks for Families event. This day is to celebrate all of our Palm Valley families! We will be providing pancakes for you outside the MS Building from 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM onFriday, May 25th.

On the last day of school, Friday, June 8th we will be having an End of the Year party for our Toddlers, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten students! This event will take place on our playgrounds after nap-time. If you have a part-time student contract, we will allow the extended time to cover nap and the party without charge. We want all of our students to be involved in this event and celebrate the end of the school year!
