Congratulations Palmer Academic Team - 1st in Recent Meet!!

Palmer’s Giving Tree will be located in the lobby near the front office starting Wednesday November 19th!!   until December 12th.  If you are able please stop by and take an ornament or two to help a Palmer family in need.  We do REQUEST that you return gift items to Mrs. Barnes office in the Counseling Office.  Items should be UNWRAPPED with the ornament attached. It would be helpful to include a gift receipt, and a gift bag or a roll of wrapping paper. Gift cards should be brought to Mrs. Crain, the bookkeeper, in the front office. Each ornament is coded for privacy and identification so that we know where the gift will be sharing the holiday. All items with the ornament attached must be returned to school no later than Friday December 12th so that they can be delivered before the break.


Thank you all in advance for your generous support.

The Palmer Middle School Academic Team placed first in the November 15th Cobb County Academic Meet!

Congratulations to team members, Zach, Laurel, Nevin, Sasamon, Neka, Harsha, Gillian, Abia, Jackson, Arun, Brigs, and Jonathan as well as coaches, Mr. Nash and Mrs. Mahre!

School Bus Routes Information

CCSD Bus Routes for the 2014-2015 school year are now available on the CCSD website at www.cobbk12.org. Runs and maps will be posted at your local school for review prior to the first day of school.

Kindergarten and First Grade students along with their parents are invited to ride the bus on Friday morning, August 1, 2014, as a practice run prior to the first day of school on Monday, August 4. Buses will run at regular scheduled morning pick up times and parents/students should be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.  Due to limited space, we ask that you limit the number of additional family members riding.  Only school-age children are allowed to ride as our regular buses are not equipped with car seats. The bus will follow the planned route to school, then return back to the bus stop.

During the months of August and September if temperatures reach 90 degrees or higher students may bring water in containers with a screw on lid to drink on the bus. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at 678/594-8000, or email your transportation area supervisor whose email can be found on the Transportation website.

Space is limited.
