'Back to School' Starts Here 

Start planning now for the new school year by making Palmetto Bay's Back-to-School Carnival the top item on your checklist. This popular event gets high grades for family fun each year. This last chance to have fun with all your summer buddies also includes a chance to take home free backpack stocked with school supplies. But it will be hot out there, so remember to protect yourself from the summer sun and heat. It is also the height of mosquito season, so please read below about how to protect yourself from annoying bites and mosquito-borne diseases. Palmetto Bay's public and private schools play a huge role in our Village character and quality of life. I am truly gratified I live in a community that is so supportive of our children and education. Please plan to join us, August 9, at Palmetto Bay Park!
