It is with deep sadness that we share with our MES/LV community that our PE teacher, Brian Palmer’s, oldest son, Andrew, passed away unexpectedly this past Sunday, May 5th. Mr. Palmer has been a beloved PE teacher at Matsunaga Elementary for many years. He has touched the lives of nearly all of our students and inspired a love of health and fitness in them.
