Welcome to PLE!

It is my pleasure to serve as the principal of Palmer-Laakso Elementary for the fifth year.   Here at PLE our mission is Preparing Leaders and Empowering All To Find Their Voice. We work every day to help your child be a successful academic student while learning to find their leadership strengths.  Each day, we instill the use of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in our classes and hallways.

  1. Be Proactive
  2. Begin With The End In Mind
  3. Put First Things First
  4. Think Win/Win
  5. Seek First To Understand Then To Be Understood
  6. Synergize
  7. Sharpen The Saw

Each month, we focus on a different habit and how it can be applied to help a student be successful at school and in life. Veteran students are learning new ways to apply these habits to their lives on a daily basis. The habits are timeless and reviewing them on a regular schedule helps students continually analyze how they can be used. The use of these habits also helps us to track our schoolwide goals:

  • 100% of students will improve their Reading Proficiency at the end of the first and second semesters.
  • PLE will share our vision twice each month with all stakeholders.

We are eager to work with you to help your child succeed. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
