Back to School/New Building News:
From Principal Dobbs:

This message is about our new construction and the procedures on Monday, January 6th, 2020.
 
Upon our return all students in the old buildings will be in the new facility on 120th street.
Your child was told of where their new assignment and room number.
 
If they do not know where to report, there will be staff in the new building directing them to the proper place.
 
Let’s talk about dropping your child off.
 
We will maintain our traffic pattern as usual.
 
"Drop off and Pick up" for your child will be at three locations. They will be at the west end of 118 street, on the south side of the auditorium on 74th avenue, and in front of the new building on 120th street.
 
We understand that your child may be a little anxious and excited about our new campus, but please be assured that we will have personnel out to help.
 
We wish you all a happy holiday and a heathy new year.

High School Field Facelift:
 
WE STILL NEED HELP!!
 
WANTED! Volunteers to join an important task force that will leave a legacy at our school. As you know our school is going through a $50 million+ renovation and will soon be Miami-Dade County’s flagship high school. However, our field needs a facelift as well, and a field update is not included in the GOB project scope.
 
We are looking for a few good community members (parents, alumni, community members, whomever!) to take on a fundraiser to get us a new field in conjunction with the brand-new school we will be getting. We already have a few interested volunteers but more is needed (this is a great project for dads, too). Palmetto has a huge network of not only current families, but alumni, current and past staff members, and community members and business owners who we could reach out to for funding. Interested? Contact Gina Vinueza, Palmetto High PTSA President, at ginaPTSA@gmail.com . Let’s get this ball rolling (get it).
GET YOUR PALMETTO SPIRIT WEAR:
 
The Miami Palmetto Senior's PTSA school store is operated by Sharingwear.org , a charitable organization founded and operated by Nicole Marks, a Palmetto High junior. Sharingwear's Palmetto Senior Online Store is the sole PTSA/school source to buy dress code shirts for Palmetto Senior as the Palmetto Senior PTSA does not operate a physical store at school. All clothing featured on Sharingwear's Palmetto Senior Online Store are approved by Miami Palmetto Senior High as qualified dress code attire that can be worn to school five days a week.
Designs can be purchased in multiple clothing styles (tshirts, sweatshirts, etc.) and some designs are available in multiple colors. Orders are custom printed and take 2-3 weeks for delivery. Several great new designs have been added.
 
All profits from Sharingwear's Palmetto Senior Online Store are shared 50% with the Palmetto Senior PTSA and 50% with Sharingwear's Charity of the Month. The current Charity of the Month is Paws for Panthers, Palmetto Senior's own charitable organization, which assists MPSH students who are experiencing serious financial hardship.
 
Please visit SharingWear.org to stock up on Palmetto gear!
