Welcome Silver Palms Family to the 2019-2020 school year! I am so proud to be your Principal and serve the Silver Palms staff, students, parents, and community. My priority is to ensure all students are learning to their maximum potential in a safe and secure learning environment and continue to grow to be successful during their elementary years and beyond. The focus on academic excellence never stops!
At Silver Palms, all our students are unique individuals, with equal potential to make a positive contribution. Our goal is to instill an enthusiasm for lifelong learning and a sense of global awareness in each student, along with the necessary skills to prepare them to thrive in the twenty-first century. While we have established high standards and performance for academic rigor in the classroom, strong home-school relationships, and quality of instruction, our emphasis continues to be on developing the whole person through collaboration and teamwork for the utmost success.
I want to encourage our entire Silver Palms family to continue to work towards what is best for our children. There are many opportunities for you to be part of our school and a part of your child’s educational successes. I welcome your participation as a volunteer or as a member of our Parent Teacher Association (PTA), School Advisory Council (SAC), or School Advisory Forum (SAF).
My door is always open, and I encourage you to stop by and say hello. Working together in the pursuit of excellence both at home and in school is essential for our success. I look forward to an outstanding year!
Irina Shearer, Principal
