School Song: Our Palatka High Guarded by the River’s bending, flowing ever free Just as we at childhood’s ending, flow now forth from thee, Sing for thee Palatka High, raise your voices to the sky, Ever fondly we’ll remember Our Palatka High!  The current principal is Mary Beth Hedstrom. In the words of Mary Beth Hedstrom, "With something to think about, this is Mrs. Hedstrom. Make it a great day....or not. The choice is yours."
