Davidson Realty President Sherry Davidson and I were excited to get a personal tour of Palencia Elementary School (PES) from Principal Don Campbell. Don has been in education for more than 40 years and specializes in opening new schools, such as Wards Creek Elementary in World Golf Village, and now Palencia Elementary, which opened in August of 2012. Palencia Elementary is one of our most leading edge St. Johns County Schools and caters to 738 students. Come along with us for a tour!
Great news for our World Golf Village neighbors and other St. Johns County residents! Davidson Realty recently announced the creation of their new Davidson Cares Foundation and Program to support St. Johns County schools, including Wards Creek Elementary, Mill Creek Elementary, Palencia Elementary School, and Pacetti Bay Middle School. The foundation will be funded by proceeds from real estate sales along with great local fundraising events, like their first event at Mile Marker Brewery on Friday, November 9th! It’s great to see local businesses coming together to support our schools!
It’s back to school season and our World Golf Village and north St. Johns County area families will find some changes as they head back to school on August 20th including the addition of the new Palencia Elementary School and a new Principal at Mill Creek Elementary School. The opening of Palencia Elementary School this month brings with it rezoning that impacts some families previously zoned for Mill Creek Elementary. The St. Johns County School District website provides an easy to use address look-up to find out which schools your elementary, middle and high school student is zoned for. It’s accessible at http://www.gis.bocc.co.st-johns.fl.us/schoolaz2/.
Following is round-up of key facts about our area schools. More information, including bus routes can be found on the school websites.
