Administration's Message

Welcome Back Panthers!

I am Ms. Beth Steele your new Principal! I have moved to Palo Verde from Nevada where I was an assistant principal of a middle school.  I have a new assistant principal, Mr. Jay Richardson, who has been with the Washington Elementary School District since 2015. 

We are all thrilled to get started with this year at Palo Verde Middle School! Our Palo Verde teachers and staff have been working this summer to find new ways to be better than before. This year will be full of excellent opportunities for our students.  As we launch this new year, we make a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be an engaging and meaningful year. Rigorous work in and out of classrooms, alongside special events, performing arts groups and athletic teams will certainly encourage our Panthers to be and stay involved.

During the 2018-19 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our solid foundation of excellence by working hard, honoring traditions and providing quality-focused education.  Our vision, “Producing Valued Motivated Students - Where everyone does everything to achieve their personal best!” continues to inspire each of us.

We anticipate a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, ongoing invitation to our families to be involved in activities and events whenever possible.  We want, need and value your involvement and support in your children’s education! Your continued participation is essential for the success of your children during their middle school years.

Communication between the home and school is of utmost worth to the Palo Verde educational community and is integral to each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us, not only as needs arise, but also to stay informed of your children’s assignments and progress along with school activities and other happenings.

To our new students and families, welcome.  To those returning, welcome back. An awesome new school year awaits and depends on you.

Please join us on August 2, 2018 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. for our Open House.  You will be able to get your schedule, walk the campus and meet teachers and other staff.  Hope to see you there!
