Principal's Message

  • From Mrs. Peggy Griebenow

    As we look to closing out another school year at Palmer Lake Elementary, it is good to take a moment and reflect on what we've accomplished.  

    One of our biggest accomplishments this year, was the implementation of a Responsive Classroom approach to teaching. This approach is comprised of a set of well-designed practices intended to create a safe, joyful, and engaging classroom and school community. We were intentional this year at building community and it was fun to see morning meetings in progress everyday from 8:45 - 9:15. Students got to know a little about each other every morning and, in turn, they treated one another with more kindness and empathy. Sure, we had rough days and some conflict, but those days were a little easier to get through knowing that we had the skills needed to make things right with one another!  

    We have many events to look forward to in the coming weeks. Field trips, a book fair, a Read-A-Thon, Field Day and a Writers Conference are all on the list. Check out our school calendar for dates. 

    Looking forward to sunny days!
