August - September 2019We are excited to start a new school year and welcome everyone back to Palouse Elementary and Garfield-Palouse High School.
This year, school will start the same time for all Elementary and High School students (8:20). School is released at 3:10 daily, with busses schedule for a 3:20 departure. Middle School students going to Garfield will meet the bus for a 7:50 departure from Palouse and return by 3:15. Additionally, a school calendar is available on our website (www.garpal.net), please be sure to print it and visit our site frequently for updates and information.
We are excited this year to welcome Shyra Hallan, Megan Wilson, and Carie Capello to our staff. Mrs. Hallan is our new school secretary and is in daily starting August 14th. Mrs. Wilson is our lead FFA advisor and will be teaching floral, hort, ag leadership, along with AFNR and vet science. Mrs. Capello joins us as an aide to our district and will be helping in a variety of classrooms and with a number of our students. Welcome to all three and please be sure to stop by and visit them when you have a chance.
Last year we were recognized for the work we have done in Reading and ELA, and our staff, students, and parents should all be congratulated for their efforts for being a State Recognized school. We continue to work on those areas in which we see a need and our half days will help to that end, focusing on new state law centered around HB 1599, discipline, and content. You are welcome to come in and visit on any of these issues as well as other items of concern.
As the year begins, please don't hesitate to email or come in and visit staff. Our open house is scheduled for August 26th, and staff will be in meetings on the 27th, but in the building. Thank you once again for your continued support of our students and GO Vikes!
