Principal's Message



    Royal Palm Families, 

    Welcome to the 2023 – 2024 school year! A new year brings new opportunities for growth, new opportunities to realize goals, and new connections. As we enter the new school year, our teachers and staff have a collected focus on meeting the need of every scholar. As a staff, we will ensure that together, we will create an environment where scholars will learn without limits. #OneTeamOneDream 

    A new year is also a time to reflect on the previous year. Reflecting allows us as a school team to make changes, strengthen decision-making, and ensure continued success. We have had quite a few wins this year that are worthy of celebrating.  

    • 34% proficiency In English Language Arts.  

    • 35% proficiency In Math.  

    • 47% proficiency In Science - the highest proficiency In Royal Palm's history! 

    • Increased partnerships with city officials and local businesses to support our school.  

    • Decreased behavior referral and suspension rate by 35%. 

    • Increased positive behavior supports through the implementation of our Panda Principles and School-wide Positive Behavior Plan. 

    • Increased our mentorship efforts through the implementation of our Support Staff Leading and Mentoring (SSLAM) initiative. 

     I am excited to welcome back all our returning scholars and extend a warm welcome to those scholars joining us for the first time this year! 

     As the Principal, I am here to assist our families in any capacity. I understand your concerns as a parent and I am here to support and work with you in finding resources to assist you with encouraging positive behavior, conveying high expectations, and fostering a love for learning.  

     Communicating with and providing excellent customer service is a priority of the administrative team at Royal Palm. Important information is included in the monthly newsletter and disseminated through parent links and via Class Dojo. Please ensure that your contact information is updated often. 

     We have many exciting learning activities planned to inspire, challenge, support, and educate your children this school year as well as some parent opportunities to strengthen our parent-educator partnership. Contact your child’s teacher for suggestions on helping your child at home and how you can support their classroom efforts. 

     Every family is important at Royal Palm and we welcome your involvement and participation in helping our scholars shoot for the moon! I encourage you to join our PTA, participate in school activities and special occasions. Together, we form a strong partnership to ensure that our scholars receive an exceptional education.  

     Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns. We will work together to address any concerns and provide a speedy resolution.
