PES Designated a No Place for Hate School


5th Year in a row!!!


Palmetto Elementary School has been designated a No Place for Hate school for the fifth year in a row.  


This designation is from the Anti-Defamation League and is earned by doing an anti-bullying training for students and 3 school-wide activities that promote respect for individual and group differences while challenging name-calling, bullying, prejudice and bigotry.
