Community

Palm Lane Charter School was started by and services the community around it.  We are proud to have active families at our school who help make it an exceptional learning environment.

PE

At Palm Lane we want our students to receive a well-rounded and healthy experience while at school.  That is why in addition to daily breaks in instruction we offer a daily chance for students to exercise and visit the art wheel. 

School Events

Palm Lane is COMMITTED to hosting events throughout the school year that promotes home-to-school connections, is welcoming to parents, and that celebrates students.  Look for weekly school events on our monthly newsletter and here, on our site!

Art

Through art, students can express themselves through different modalities while exercising high levels of creativity.  Student artwork is displayed in various places around Palm Lane’s campus, giving students a sense of pride.

Technology

To support our STEAM program and allow students the opportunity to develop their technology skills, Palm Lane has 1-to-1 Chrome books in grades 3 to 6, while students in the primary have daily access to technology as well.  Students also use Cubelets and Ozobits in our STEAM Labs to learn coding and learn robotics in a way that will challenge them to plan, solve problems, reflect and collaborate – skills that are essential to being globally and technologically competent.

Intervention

For students who need additional time to develop English Language Development skills, or work on instructional goals driven by Individual Educational Plans, or need additional time to practice higher-level thinking skills, Palm Lane has a dedicated intervention block students participate in daily.  Teachers gather data during this dedicated structured time, which they use to plan instruction.

Teachers

Palm Lane teachers are very dedicated, driven, collaborative, creative, and reflective.  They encourage positive student behavior, they understand the importance of building a positive rapport with parents, and they take time to get to know their students which helps them to best know how to help students succeed, both academically and social-emotionally as well.

Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Palm Lane is COMMITTED to involving parents in the education of their child(ren).  There are many opportunities for parent participation.  Parents are encouraged to visit the school office for more information on how to become a Palm Lane Parent Volunteer.
