Welcome!! We are so happy to see you here! Whether this is your first year as a Palomares Elementary parent or you've been a member of our community for a while, we want to thank you for showing an interest in getting involved.
It's going to be a great year! Now that parents and volunteers are finally allowed back on campus, the PPTC is very excited to bring back many of the fun activities, events, and enrichment programs that our students enjoyed prior to the shutdown, and we need your help!
Here are some ways you can show your support and make an impact in your child's experience at Palomares this year:

VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
There will be many opportunities throughout the year when your help is needed! Whether it's to help plan or run a social event such as Movie Night, or to lend a helping hand at the Hawk-a-thon (our biggest fundraising event), or join in on a beautification effort on campus, your participation will make a big difference! Whatever your schedule is like, even if you only have 30 minutes to spare, you’ll find opportunities to help: days or evenings, from school or from home, we have something for you to do!
Money raised goes toward classroom enrichment, class field trips, assemblies, social events, and much more! We work with Palomares teachers and staff to make sure our kids have the resources and materials they need! If you are able, please make a tax-deductible donation to help support the efforts of the PPTC. Thank you!
