Dear Paloma Families ~

We are officially in November! This month starts the countdown to my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. I love everything about it. The cooler temperatures, changing colors of the foliage, warm scents, and a focus on gratitude! There is much to be thankful for as I look around PES. I am thankful for our fabulous families, talented and dedicated staff, spectacular students, valuable volunteers, and a school that is a connected family of learners!

May you and your families take some time in the next weeks to pause, consider, and share with each other all the things to be thankful for!

Have a WONDERFUL week!!

WE ARE Panthers, WE ARE Kind, WE ARE 'Pawsitive', WE ARE Grateful, WE ARE Paloma!!!

Salute to Heroes ~ Breakfast and Celebration

Our Salute to Heroes celebration is Tuesday, November 12th.

The Paloma Panthers want to honor all military personnel, and all first responders who are currently serving or have served in the past. We appreciate your service and want to honor you for keeping us safe!

An appreciation breakfast will be held on Tuesday, November 12th at 8:15 am. A parade will follow with a photo opportunity and a chance to interact in your child’s classroom. Please meet us at the lunch tables and feel free to wear your uniform!

Please complete the form in the link below and submit by ASAP, so we can plan accordingly.

Additionally, in years' past, some of our schools' Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts have assisted in our Salute to Heroes by helping lead the Pledge of Allegiance, passing out donated popcorn, and greeting visitors. Mrs. Rudy will be coordinating the local Scouts' involvement. Any Scouts from any Units that want to participate should email Mrs. Rudy at :

She will send out instructions to those that are interested. Thank you!

We look forward to celebrating you and your family!
Thank you!

Holiday Card Competition

Each year, the Superintendent's office and Governing Board send out holiday cards to administrators in the district, surrounding districts, city officials and local groups. We have students submit works of art and then some are selected to have their art printed on the district's holiday cards.

We are doing it again this year! If your student would like to participate, please have them use the attached sheet for the drawing submission. The winning student's drawing will be used as the cover of our holiday card and the student's name, grade and school will be included on the inside of the card.

The attached sheet must be used for the drawing submission. The list of rules are included on this form. We ask that the students turn the drawing forms in to their teacher or front office staff.

As you all know, this year is TVUSD's 30th anniversary and the district would like students to incorporate the 30th anniversary of TVUSD theme in the drawing of their holiday drawing. Please have them weave together the 30th anniversary and a holiday greeting.

All submissions are due by November 6, 2019. The parent will be notified if their student's drawing is selected. The winning students will be invited to the December 17th Board meeting where they will be presented with their card.

We are excited to see if any of our PES Panther entries will be selected! :)
