A Message from Our Principal
Welcome to Palm Crest Elementary School, home of the Panthers! I am very honored and proud to serve as the principal of such an outstanding elementary school. Palm Crest is proud of its transition of excellence over the past 50 years, and our goal is to continue this tradition of excellence in education as well as an academic and personal success for each child. In 2019, Plam Crest received the California Distinguished School Award from the State of California for its exemplary and high quality educational programs!
Everyone at Palm Crest Elementary has made a commitment to provide the highest quality education possible for our students. We are dedicated to ensuring that our school provides a welcoming, stimulating learning environment where students are actively engaged in learning academics as well as developing positive character values. We are confident that our students will gain the skills, attitudes, and understanding necessary to be successful 21st Century citizens.
Palm Crest is very fortunate to have a fantastic PTA and an active parent community. Together we are committed to working as a team in order to provide an optimal educational environment for our students. The support of the La Canada-Flintridge community enables us to have outstanding programs, which make significant differences in the lives of our students. Working together towards a shared vision of high expectations for student achievement and character development empowers our students to demonstrate personal success and become confident, life-long learners.
Our door is always open to listen and share your ideas. Working together, we will make each day a memorable and rewarding experience for our students!
