    I am excited to begin my seventh year at Palombi Middle School and collaborate with parents, students, staff and community members. Prior to Palombi, I was the Principal of Prairie Grove Elementary and Middle School in Crystal Lake, Illinois for nine years. This will be my twenty-fourth year in education. As education continues to evolve, the one thing that remains constant is the children that attend. They deserve to be in a safe, nurturing environment, where they are both challenged and successful. We commit to that whether we are in person, remote, or in hybrid structure due to COVID-19. Please visit the District 41 COVID-19 page for the most recent plans for learning and the Newsletter section under the Parents and Students page. 

    As much as we will miss the warm temperatures and the time off, there is an excitement that builds with the start of a new school year. The start of the school year is like a rebirth, it contains a new found hope for success as we all begin another journey through the nine months of instruction, growth, and continued learning. Palombi staff and administration will pursue many goals and objectives throughout the year with regard to the work that will be done to help students improve their knowledge and understanding of the world we live in.

    We hope you had a safe, fun, and relaxing summer. We look forward to the upcoming school year and working with your students to help them attain their maximum growth at Palombi Middle School. I hope that our website will assist you in finding information about our school and if it doesn’t, feel free to contact us.
