National PTA has recognized Palmetto Elementary School and the Palmetto Elementary School PTA as a 2022-2024 School of Excellence for their accomplishments in building a strong, effective family-school partnership that is enriching the educational experience and overall well-being for all students. Palmetto Elementary School and our PTA are one of a select group of PTAs and schools nationwide to be recognized with the designation.
“We are thrilled to honor the accomplishments of Palmetto Elementary School and the Palmetto Elementary School PTA,” said Yvonne Johnson, president of National PTA. “Their work to strengthen their family-school partnership has created an environment where families feel welcomed, included and empowered to support their child’s success and where students feel safe, supported and ready to learn, which is more important than ever.”
National PTA’s School of Excellence program is a year-long commitment to strengthening family-school partnerships. Throughout the year, PTAs and schools collect feedback from their school communities to create and implement plans of action to improve family engagement and make a difference for every child. Through the School of Excellence program, PTAs and families become key partners in decision-making and school improvement efforts. The program opens the lines of communication and critical thinking within school communities to make data-drive decisions that yield positive, long-term results.
“There could not be a more urgent time to make sure schools and PTAs are reaching and engaging all families in ways that have a positive impact on all students’ success,” said Nathan R. Monell, CAE, National PTA executive director. “As a 2022-2024 National PTA School of Excellence designee, Palmetto Elementary School and the Palmetto Elementary School PTA have demonstrated what over 40 years of research has also proved—amazing things can be achieved when schools and families work together in effective ways to accomplish a common goal.”
At Palmetto Elementary School PTA, we strive to provide the best possible education to our students by creating an environment that fosters learning, growth, and personal development.
