We are celebrating our success as Palomino Primary soars ahead in student achievement according to last year's test scores. The State of Arizona and the Paradise Valley Unified School District officially recognize the outstanding progress our students have made. Teachers and students are exceeding expectations, and every day at Palomino is an exciting adventure into the world of knowledge and information.
Palomino received a substantial grant from the 21st Century foundation funding both Before and After the Bell programs that support academic achievement in math and reading and provide enrichment opportunities for our students.
We offer open enrollment to all students wishing to become part of our vibrant learning community.
Mr. Stephen Lee
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is to be able to see students truly engaged in and excited about learning. I also enjoy working with a team of educators to solve complex issues.
What important message do you want all your students to know?
I want students to know that if they work hard and set goals, there is no limit to what they can achieve.
What do you do to make your school a safe and caring environment?
I help make Palomino Primary safe through careful planning, training, and teamwork. Adults at Palomino Primary teach students to be caring and safe through Passport day and weekly OLWEUS meetings. Through the Make Your Day with Palomino Pride program students are taught to use their words to solve conflict and take responsibility for their own actions.
If you had a message for your parents what would it be?
Participate as much as you can in your child’s education. Ask your child how his/her day was and look in their backpack. Read with your children everyday and do not hesitate to call your child’s teacher if you have a question. Ask your child’s teacher for volunteer opportunities and come to our reading and math nights.
