Principal's Message


    Irina Shearer

    Welcome Silver Palms Families!
    Home of the Dynamic Dolphins!

    It is with pride and joy that I have the honor to serve as Principal of Silver Palms Elementary where kindness and respect is our culture!  Silver Palms teachers, staff, administrative team, and parents are committed to the academic success and social emotional wellbeing of our children. We aim to provide a safe, kind, and respectful learning environment where our children thrive. The hard work of our school community paid off! I am proud to announce that we regained our “A” status! I look forward to continuing working hard with our families and community members to elevate and enhance our academic excellence because at Silver Palms Elementary we are champions of our own success!
    For returning families, I look forward to seeing you all and continuing to serve you, and the entire Silver Palms Elementary community. Families new to Silver Palms, WELCOME! We are honored that you decided to make Silver Palms your child’s school. My teachers, staff and administrative team are here to support all our families. Our staff and school community are committed to providing the best educational experience for your child. Let us know how we may be of service!
    We remain committed to excellence and preparing our children to be successful members of a global community. Research has identified 21st century skills that our students need to be successful in life. We will work to provide our children with these vital skills: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, problem-solving, strong technology skills, ethics, and accountability.
    We are excited to continue providing Dual Language classes in kindergarten through 5th grade, as well as, award winning Robotics, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), Chorus, Debate, Chess and Fine Arts Clubs.  Moreover, our character development programs will continue as they are a vital aspect of education to help our children develop kind, respectful and caring natures. Character education has a positive impact on our children’s educational experiences and social growth! Here at Silver Palms “Kindness and Respect is our Culture!”
    We cannot do the work without our families, and each year we strive to strengthen our home-school partnership and encourage all our families to see it as a goal to become more engaged in the Silver Palms Elementary community. We encourage you to attend SAC (School Advisory Council) meetings, become a volunteer, or join us at a school event! We are so fortunate to have such wonderful families, and your support makes all the difference. Thank you all for your commitment to Silver Palms Elementary’s children! It is such an amazing place for our children to learn and grow!

    Luckiest Principal,
    Irina Shearer
