Nelson, Kristen School Principal

Note from Sra. Nelson

Dear Las Palmas Community,

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year at Las Palmas Elementary School.  I am looking forward to another wonderful year! This school is such a unique gem found among the choices of elementary schools in our area and we welcome each and every family who walks through our front doors.  We feel honored to be able to be a part of your family in this special way.

The year ahead will be an exciting one.  Our organic garden is up and running and the students love working in the garden.  The amount of Chromebooks and IPADS are increasing each day and our students are engaged and excited!

We are looking forward to offering your children a great year ahead.  The Las Palmas teachers are some of the best and most talented teachers in the entire school district.  Multi-cultural, multi-linguistic, and multi-talented.  You simply can't ask for more.

The world is a big place and we enjoy opening the window to this world each and every day to the 800 students at Las Palmas.

Kristen Nelson
