My son just started Kindergarten this school year. He loves his teacher Ms. Tomlinson & so do I! I love her teaching style. I had the opportunity to accompany the class on a recent field trip to the zoo and her classroom felt as if it were a family rather than a bunch of kids from different backgrounds. She has done a wonderful job teaching him this year. The front office staff is nice. I have not met the principal but have seen her at the school. There are many opportunities to volunteer as a parent at this school. However, I believe the PTO could do a better job of keeping those informed who wish to help out but cannot make all of the PTO meetings. I don't believe one meeting a month is enough anyway to have everyone work together to make a difference. There should be constant communication with those involved in the PTO all through out the school year such as emails informing everyone of progress of upcoming event planning & volunteer opportunities, etc.
I have truly have enjoyed PLE. The principal Dr. M Moser and her Assistant Principal B Depow work hard to create a warm inviting learning enviorment. The academical and social needsof each child is carefully assessed ,while making a point of leaving no child behind. My son JB has attended PLE since it opened in 2008. Infact, he recently graduated with high honors.The staff at PLE go above and beyond to fully educate their students, while allowing the right amount room to foster their growth and development. Principal Moser and her staff have proven results on state standardize exams. The students work hard each year earning the grade A standard . Gatorific , I'm sure you will agree! Congrats PLE for a job well done!
I have enjoyed Palmetto Elementary School. My son has been going for the last 2 years and has loved it. His teachers are excellent and care about his performance.
Principal Mosser is not very caring, kids going outside while it's 40, 50 60 degrees with a breeze. Making parents buy not just regular short sleeve polo uniform but not allowing turtle necks under the shirts but asking to go ahead and buy long sleeve polos like if we have money to do so. School board doesn't seem to care. Office people are grouchy.
