Mrs. Sandy Davis, an educational assistant, is also new to Palisades.

Over the summer, the school parking lot got a facelift! The area was resurfaced and lines were freshly painted. Buildings A and B were re-roofed. Restroom renovations in upstairs Building C and D are ongoing but should be completed by the end of this month. 

Do you feel that breeze? Classrooms have been equipped with ceiling fans! At the beginning of the school year, four ceiling fans have been installed in each classroom. 

Be Healthy!

During February 21-24, a committee from the Western Association for Schools and Colleges (WASC) will be visiting Palisades Elementary School. A school is accredited when it is recognized for providing high quality learning for all students and when it focuses on continuous improvement. In other words, the WASC committee will be visiting to validate the great things that Palisades is doing to ensure that students achieve and to provide an "outside" eye to ensure that our school continues to improve.
