Welcome To Palmetto!

Palmetto Elementary PTA Mission:

The overall purpose of Palmetto Elementary PTA is to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and surrounding communities to advocate for all children. We collaborate while keeping children front and center on every issue.

Legacy Tree and Branches of Wisdom

Leave your mark! Don't miss your opportunity to participate in the Legacy Tree, a PES tradition, or to have your Fifth grader join the Branch of Wisdom. Branch of Wisdom proceeds benefit the Fifth Grade Fund. 

As always, Platinum PTA members automatically receive a Large Leaf as a thank you for their continued support to the PTA, however also have the opportunity to upgrade their Leaf for an additional charge.

You can order yours online by clicking HERE. They are also attached below and  available for download. Order forms for either project can be left in the PTA mailbox in the office, or given to your child's teacher in an envelope marked "Attn PTA". Last day to turn in your order forms is            April 07, 2017.

Contact Dena Lundy (dixiepin@aol.com) or Andrea Gonzalez at andreagon033@gmail.com  with any questions.

Thank you for your support!
