Anti-Bullying

Paloma is committed to anti bullying. Staff and students are trained on how to address bullying issues that may arise across campus. For further information on bullying and what you can do about it please refer to the Bully Awareness Resistance Educational program

Gifted and Talented Education (G.A.T.E.)

Paloma's GATE program is designed to assist in meeting the unique needs of students who demonstrate superior ability. The program begins in third grade with a multiple criteria identification process. Students in grade 3 are screened by teacher and/or parent request. All of our classroom teachers differentiate the curriculum to address the needs of multiple learners. GATE students are offered extension activities during the school day, as well as through after school workshops.

Technology

In Kindergarten through 5th grade, our teachers integrate technology into the curriculum in order to enhance instruction. Computers, iPads, and other devices are used daily in all curricular areas. Panther's Lair, our STEM lab, is also used to teach students everything from computer programming skills and coding, to robotics.

School Psychological Services

Services are available for students who are experiencing significant learning or behavioral issues.

Speech Therapy

Students are referred for screening and/or training by teachers or parents. Parents are welcome to contact the school regarding assistance in this important area.

Specialized Academic Instruction

Children who have been identified as having a specific learning disability, are provided services within the classroom setting. Working together, parents, teachers, and other appropriate personnel develop an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) to target each child's identified needs.
