Welcome to Palms Middle School!




    Hello Palms Middle Community,

   Since I received my district displacement notice, I have had many people ask me, "What is happening with you?'  One even said, "I hope you enjoy your retirement."

   I am not retiring but I am able to let the Palms Community know 'What is happening."  The district has assigned me to Westchester High School's Sport Medicine Magnet School as a pool sub.  That means they can use me as they need and other schools that need a sub can too.

   I will be staying in contact with many of the Palms Community.  Have a healthy and productive 2018-19.

In addition to the "Reach for the Stars" mural, Ms. Goldin's art students completed a second mural before the end of the 2017-18 school year - the Butterfly mural. Located on the south side of campus, the mural is visible from Palms Boulevard, beautifying not only Palms Middle School, but also the view for drivers heading east.



New 6th grade students were welcomed this week at the annual, two-day Camp Palms orientation. 




Dozens of Palms new students, parents, teachers and staff gathered on July 28 for the annual new student Meet and Greet. A great time was had by all!

Several Palms 6th graders (now rising 7th graders!) were featured in a June 29th LA Times article about a new school initiative aimed at encouraging middle school and high school students to consider careers in the movie industry. The project is part of a larger goal to address underrepresentation and lack of diversity in the industry. "The superhero project is part of a new school initiative crafted by movie and TV studio Warner Bros. to encourage young people from predominantly Latino and African American communities to find and hone their creative voices."
