Today's Learners - Tomorrow's Leaders

Message from Principal Katie Sandlin


    I am honored and excited to join the Palmetto Elementary family. I have 19 years of experience in education at a variety of levels. I look forward to continuing the traditions that make Palmetto Elementary such an amazing learning community. The staff at Palmetto is a welcoming and energetic group of educators who are dedicated to the success of every student. I am committed to partnering with all stakeholders to provide the best experience possible for our PLE Gators.

    Dear Prospective Palmetto Partner,

                    Palmetto Elementary School (PLE) is excited to continue with our Palmetto Partner Program. We know that good schools build strong communities, and strong communities are vital for businesses to thrive. For those of you who are not aware of PLE, here are some amazing facts about our little school in the big woods. We are one of the smallest elementary schools in Collier County, and a Title 1 school and face challenges due to our location in the Estates. Our closest business is 7 miles away, as we are tucked away off of Everglades Blvd.

                    At PLE, we work hard every day to ensure student success. We have a dedicated staff of outstanding teachers and employees who ensure students love learning, love coming to school, and are successful every day. We would like to ensure our students have the experiences and materials they need to enrich their education. With business partners like you, we can help fund field trips, classroom materials, technology needs, reading resources and other needs. Everything that is raised through our Palmetto Partner Program will go back to the classrooms to benefit our student’s educational experience.

                    We ask that you please join us in supporting our school! After reviewing the Palmetto Partner Program, and the benefits to your business, we hope you will consider contributing to our school and students. At PLE, we believe that together we are the creators of our future.
