Welcome to Palms Middle School!



A huge congratulations to our Palms actors for their performance of their show, Conversations With Ourselves, a collaboration between East West Players and Palms Middle School. These dedicated actors stayed after school for eight classes, participated in improv games, and wrote their own monologues. Their showcase show was at East West Players' historic theater in Little Tokyo. The students were professional and hilarious and we were all proud of them.
