Dear Pal-Mac Neighbors:
If you have been around any of our school campuses, you likely noticed facility improvements from construction work that occurred over the summer; some of this work continues. Work of varying scope has been at all four school buildings as well as at the transportation center on Yellow Mills Road. Updates include the refinishing of gym floors at the high school, parking lot improvements at the middle school and transportation center, and roof work at the intermediate school. Work has been occurring at district athletic facilities including the resurfacing of the track; the replacement of audio systems and scoreboards is set to occur in the next few months. A special thank you to the Pal-Mac community for your investment in our district.
As the school year unfolds, we will have opportunities as a community to celebrate Pal-Mac Pride. Homecoming (September 30-October 5) is always a time to show our school spirit. You are encouraged to get involved. Students can participate in spirit activities throughout the week and families are encouraged to enjoy the Friday/Saturday parade, games, fireworks and great food! Let’s join together as one community to support our school district and our children.
This school year we are excited to introduce additional communication tools to keep parents and students informed about the great things happening at Pal-Mac. Be sure you have liked the district’s official Facebook page and follow us on our newly created Instagram and Twitter accounts, @PalMac_CSD. These sources will provide the best and most reliable source of information.
In addition, the district will begin using a program known as Thoughtexchange. Be on the lookout for information about this tool to be able to participate in future planning for Pal-Mac. Your input will be essential.
Be sure to keep up to date with current events throughout the district by visiting palmaccsd.org which features a district events calendar and athletics schedules, as well as the latest district announcements in the District News tab.
Best wishes for an amazing 2019-20 school year! As a district, we will work hard each day to ensure our students receive a world-class, relevant education. As a community, let’s be #PalMacProud!
Go Red Raiders!
