Everyone has an impact at the school! If you have suggestions for improvement please bring them up to the principal. No one is going to criticize or judge. It's all confidential. I also wanted to thank Mrs. Godsey for all her hard work. She goes the extra mile to help our kids. There has been so much improvements from the kindergarten play ground to after school programs and so much more. Can't wait to see the upcoming years. Thank you Mrs GodseyThank you Teachers Thank you staff members Thank you Mr Ray and Sonny Thank you Volunteers

My child is in a class that has two teacher's ,a job share situation. I have been in the classroom a few times and notice some things. The two teachers are not lesson planning together, which is a major concern because when you have a job share teaching situation both teacher's have to be on the same page planning together. The teaching should run smoothly and efficiently. I have seen big discrepancies with teaching styles, grading, overall atmosphere in the classroom with one teacher in particular. One teacher is doing more than the other teacher. When I have had a concern or question, I have to track down both teacher's and if the teacher can't answer my question I have to ask the other one. It has been very frustrating because as a parent I'm very involved and interested with my child's education. I feel teacher's want parents to be active but I feel my child is not being taught just the basic grade level standards. I am hesitant to speak to the principal because I don't want my child to be treated differently. I know if I say something the teachers may make it hard for my child.I'm very disappointed that the administration is not on top of this, I believe that nothing is being checked to see if the job share is working. I will be taking my child out of this school, I am saddened that I had high hopes of this school and was let down.

Ms Slattery in TK at Palmyra is excellent! Very friendly and gives daily updates through the ClassDojo app. She is making my son's first year of school an easy transition from being at home. He wakes up eager to go to school to learn new things each day!

Mr. Hausner is doing a great job as the new principal in the '11-'12 school year. My kids are in 4th and 6th grade GATE classes at Palmyra, and Mrs. Scheidt and Mrs. Campbell are wonderful teachers. My kids are having a really good year academically and socially.

Funny that every review about how HORRIABLE this school and it's office staff and principal, Ms. Smith covers for the rude office staff and hides from parents when there is a serious issue at her school. Zero actitives for students-levels behind.
