Assistant Principal's Message

Dear Students, Parents and Staff:


As assistant principal at Palo Verde Middle School, I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for this year and how pleased I am to be part of the “Panther” family.  I am honored to play a role in each student's education and know that this year will truly be an exciting educational journey for all. 


Being in education for 10 years, I have learned many valuable life lessons from numerous people; lessons which I hope to preserve at Palo Verde.


  • It's the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary
  • There is nothing to hold you back, except yourself
  • There is only one way to learn, and that is through action
  • Follow your dreams
  • Move on- Always look forward


As the assistant principal of Palo Verde, I will dedicate my efforts to building a strong relationship with the Palo Verde Learning Community so that working together, we will see the success of students both the classroom as well as in extracurricular activities.


This will be a year of great memories. 



Jill Sarraino
