• PLES-1893 Palmer Lake Elementary School was opened in 1934 with a dream in mind…that it would be a place where children could live and learn in a safe and stimulating environment. Through openings, closings and remodeling, that dream has never faded. A very important part of the dream was that Palmer Lake Elementary would be a place where parents, teachers, students and the community would work in partnership. That dream is alive and well today. The school provides a variety of opportunities and activities for families and school staff to get to know each other and work together.
