Dear Parents/Guardians,
Thank you for your patience during our construction at Palmer River. The solar panels in the parking lot are almost ready to go online.  The parking lot will now be well lit and will generate electricity for our school. The roof is also almost completed despite the weather!  It is projected to be done within the next couple of weeks.  Each section of the building seemed to have some minor noise for only a couple of days. The project was well managed, with compliments to our Director of Facilities, Mr. David Nappi! 
Health News!
There are cases of flu, strep and stomach bug throughout the school as can be expected at this time of year. Please remember the fever rule from the DPH: students need to be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Ibuprofen before returning to the classroom. It is recommended they are back to eating and drinking normally and have the energy to complete the entire school day.
Miscellaneous: The PTSA Reflections contest deadline has been extended to Friday, 1/12/2018.
We are looking forward to the return of Bren Bataclan for another fourth grade mural during the week of January 29, 2018. The mural theme will be “STEAM,” science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
