Palm School has a yearbook published every year. A yearbook committee (that includes PTA) is formed to gather information, photos and ads throughout the school year. If you do not want your child's photo in the yearbook, please contact the office at (951) 845-9579.

Science Fair:
During the months of February and March, Palm's 3rd, 4th and 5th grade future scientists and mathematicians develop exciting and unique science projects. Students get a chance to conduct original experiments within the classroom and at home, while mastering the scientific method. Once all of the science experiments are complete the students display their science boards for the rest of the school to see. Several Palm students also enter the District Science Fair in hopes of bringing home a ribbon showcasing their spectacular science skills.

R- Reading - Cozy-up with a book is a special evening when Palm Innovation students and their families return to school to read, read, and read. It's a time for being cozy and comfortable, and having fun reading with each other. Our students are always delighted to choose a new book to take home at the end of the evening.

Grade Level Programs:
Our spring program is an opportunity for students to perform songs, dances, and poems for family and friends. It is often held outdoors. Those classes that did not perform in the winter program will perform during Multi-Cultural Fair/Open House or Spring.

Spelling Bee:
Every year Palm's 4th and 5th grade students participate in spelling competitions within their own classrooms. Two top students from each class then go onto participate in Palm's Annual Spelling Bee. Parents, teachers, and students gather together to cheer on the "spellbound" contestants. The top four triumphant students then find themselves studying and preparing for the District Spelling Bee, in hopes of being Beaumont's master speller.

What would the month of March be without March Madness. Every year Palm's college bound 4th and 5th grade students participate in a traditional basketball tournament in which only one team can claim the championship spot. All-stars are then selected from each team by participating teammates. These all-stars show off their dazzling basketball skills in an always- anticipated game against Palm' s teacher. Parents, teachers and students gather around the court in hopes of seeing students upset their own teachers in a classic game of five on five basketball.
