Lego Fieldtrip FUN!

PLTW Inquiry projects

Second graders absolutely  love Project Lead the Way.

"The program empowers students to adopt a design-thinking mindset through compelling activities, projects, and problems that build upon each other and relate to the world around them."

Palmquist is proud to offer inquiry as a way to engage our learners. Promoting learning through collaborative teams, builds  friendship and develops critical thinkers.

Our Accelerated Reader program gives students an opportunity to shine bright with pride.   

Students can earn prizes at different point levels to keep them motivated while they are learning to read. 

We love readers at Palmquist and  are always on the lookout for a reason to celebrate success (see our animals on the School Wide Activities page).
