Halloween Festivities

Drive-Thru Trick-or-Treat

Come on over to Paloma on Friday, October 30th from 3:30 pm- 4:30 pm. We are going to have a drive-by trick or treat event for our Paloma students. We would love for the kids to come in costume so we can take photos for our yearbook. 


Virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest


We are also going to have a Virtual Pumpkin carving contest. After carving your pumpkin, send a picture to ptopaloma@gmail.com by the end of the day on Halloween. The Administrative team will choose the top 3 winners. 1st place will win a Paloma sweatshirt, 2nd place will win a Paloma t-shirt and 3rd place will win a Paloma water bottle. Happy Carving!

2020/2021 Yearbooks 


Our yearbooks are most likely going to look a little different this year, but we would still love to offer them to our school community. We are asking families 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. 


Yearbook sales will begin in February once we have a better idea of how much content we have for the yearbook and can determine a price. 


If you have photos you'd like featured in our 2020-2021 yearbooks, please upload them here. (You'll have to create an account in order to upload them.)  

Special Announcement 

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 ptopaloma@gmail.com.

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.)
