The Learning Pod, Part 1
"We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us." –– Winston Churchill Not often do new kindergartners arrive at school to hear they are going to be the teachers that day; however, when Mrs. Ranjbar and Mrs. Salmi’s afternoon class arrived on a Monday in early October, they heard exactly that.   Mrs. Ranjbar , Mrs. Salmi , and Principal Hurley had made plans to team up their kinder students with Professor Kevin O’Brien’s college students, all studying architectural design with a focus on education spaces at Cal Poly Pomona. These soon-to-be architects have been assigned to design and build a ... read full article

Dance with Me
The reviews are in on the 2nd Annual Father Daughter Dance, and there are plenty of raves.  On Saturday, November 5, Palm Crest dads and their daughters gathered in an MPR that had been transformed into a magical candyland. Dads, grandpas, uncles, and other special guys in the lives of PCR girls had a chance to just be together for the joy of it.  Sixth grader Molly Price liked the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory projected on the screen. Yagmur Ersavas liked the fact that father/daughter pictures were taken. Lissette Lorenzana liked the balloons, the decorated cupcakes, the lollipops and ... read full article

Well-positioned near ... read full article

This Eagle Scout Understands the Basics
Imagine yourself deciding on your Eagle Scout project:  Go for something that includes a glorious plaque, or go for something downright essential?  Former PCR Student James Lee chose the latter. James came up with a project that every teacher has hoped for, but no teacher wants to need.  Think about it.  James designed and donated for all 34  Palm Crest classrooms -- wait for it -- emergency potties that provide dignity and that everyone hopes no one will need. Before Lee’s project, the disaster instructions directed teachers to use waste baskets and an open closet door in the event of ... read full article

Happy Thanksgiving
Dear PCR Families, As we approach the holiday season, this seems the perfect time to pause and reflect on all that we are thankful for at Palm Crest.
