• The Peer Assistance Leadership Program (PAL Program) at Palmer Middle School is an organization of 7th and 8th grade students that are interested in helping 5th and 6th grade students by becoming mentors to the students. The Mentors will eat lunch with their 5th or 6th grade partners on Friday and often go to recess with them after lunch. The PAL members meet every other Tuesdays with their sponsors, Mrs. Starkey and Mrs. Zhanel.
