Eighth Grade

8th grade culmination cap

Greetings to Class of 2023 students and parents!

This year marks the last year here at Palms Middle School for our 8th graders. Throughout the year, the Eighth Grade Coordinators will be updating and posting important information and deadlines for students to meet in order to participate in activities and culmination pending on the current state.

All necessary paperwork and announcements will be distributed and communicated though the 8th grade Schoology group and on this website. You should also attend the Eighth Grade Meetings.

If you have questions, please get in touch with the 8th grade Counselor or 8th grade coordinators.
