Dear Parents/Guardians, 

I have important information to share regarding a change in leadership at Palo Verde Middle School. Principal Beth Steele has resigned. Veteran principal Betty Paterson has graciously agreed to fill the role for the remainder of the school year. Mrs. Paterson has worked in WESD for more than 30 years. She was the principal at Sunset Elementary for 13 years, and prior to that, principal at Manzanita Elementary for four years. She has also been a grade-level facilitator and classroom teacher. Mrs. Paterson is a leader who truly cares about the whole child and fostering growth with her staff.

We are so appreciative that Mrs. Paterson has agreed to take on this responsibility. We know that the staff and the students of Palo Verde Middle School will thrive under her leadership. Thank you for your support. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at 602-347-2802 if you have any questions or concerns. 

Sincerely, 

Dr. Lyn Bailey

Assistant Superintendent

Estimados Padres/Guardianes, 

Tengo información importante que compartir en cuanto a un cambio en el liderazgo de la Escuela Intermedia Palo Verde.  La directora Beth Steele ha presentado su renuncia. La directora veterana Betty Paterson cortésmente ha aceptado cumplir con el papel por el resto del año escolar. La Sra. Paterson ha trabajado en el WESD por más de 30 años. Ella fue la directora de la Escuela Sunset por 13 años y antes de eso, la directora de la Escuela Manzanita por cuatro años. Ella también ha sido una facilitadora de nivel de grado y maestra de salón de clase. La Sra. Paterson es una líder que verdaderamente se preocupa acerca del niño en su totalidad y de promover crecimiento con su personal. 

Apreciamos mucho que la Sra. Paterson haya aceptado tomar esta responsabilidad. Sabemos que el personal y los estudiantes de la Escuela Intermedia Palo Verde prosperarán bajo su liderazgo.
