PTO Board Elections
Have you ever thought of getting involved with the PTO? If so, now is the time! We have several parents whose students are graduating from Paloma and we are in need of filling their vacancies on the PTO board. It is a great way to get involved with your child's school, make friends and help in a variety of ways. If you would like to learn more or see what positions are available, please email email@example.com.
New for 2021!
Check out our new Roaming Panther Pride tee. Available to order NOW in our panther shop!
Our yearbooks will look a little different this year, but we still wanted to offer them to our school community. To make the yearbook more affordable for families this year, we have chosen to go with a softcover. We have cut down the number of pages since we are not able to have our traditional school events. We are relying on parents and teachers to please upload your favorite photos throughout this school year. We'd love to see photos from the first day of school, Halloween, Dr. Seuss week, 100th Day of school, etc. Please upload your photos here. (You'll have to create an account in order to upload them.)
Due to COVID and budget constraints, the PTO will not be able to order additional yearbooks. You MUST pre-order a yearbook if you would like one this year. We will not have extras to sell.
Yearbooks will cost $20 and can be pre-ordered in our Panther Shop. Click the School Store tab and scroll all the way down to order your yearbook.
* Congratulations to our yearbook cover winners: Cassidy Mandour (front) and Danielle Dinh! *
Dear Paloma Families,
Welcome back, Panthers! We realize we are entering this year in uncharted waters and with many unknowns. However, one thing we know for sure is that our teachers, staff, and students need our support more than ever. As the PTO Board, we are committed to holding as many events/activities as we can to normalize the school year as much as possible.
It is also critical we continue to fundraise to continue to support our full-time social worker (the PTO pays half of this position's salary). We also want to continue to provide our teachers with mini-grants to help compensate them for the out-of-pocket expenses they are incurring to teach their students virtually and any other needs that may arise throughout the year.
At this time, we are taking it month-by-month and planning fundraisers accordingly. We will not be able to hold any events in the fall and we will re-evaluate after winter break. At this time, we are planning monthly dine-outs, a fall Read-a-Thon, and a virtual Holiday Boutique!
I am excited to share with you that the PTO now has its own website. Welcome! Please have a look around. It is still under construction, but we are very excited about all the features available to us. This exciting new software will allow us to streamline all of our processes and have everything conveniently located in one place. You will be able to shop online for Paloma merchandise, volunteer, sign up for monthly PTO communication, see our calendar of events, and download our new mobile app! Please make sure you log on and create an account for your family. This way you will have access to all of these tools.
If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering or joining the PTO Board please email Connie at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hi Paloma families! We hope you will consider helping our school by buying items with Box Tops or purchasing from Amazon through their smile program. Box Tops are no longer clipped so you'll need to download their app onto your phone and scan your store receipts. The app will automatically credit our school's Box Tops account. (If you click on either the box top or Amazon Smile button below, it will take you right to their websites.)

It’s easy to sign up, doesn’t cost you anything, and all funds will directly benefit our students in the form of teacher support, student support, technology upgrades, and special events and assemblies.
