PAJAMA DAY WAS A BIG SUCCESS!
We’d like to thank our Palisades families for supporting our efforts to collect pajamas for PJ’s from Heaven. All pajamas will be shared with children in need of a little bit of warmth this winter. Thanks to you, Palisades collected 150 sets of pajamas. 475 students (90% of our student population) and nearly 50 staff members (95%) dressed in their PJ’s for this event, as well as several parents! Way to go, WAVES!
2 days left this week: Our Creation Station was again open all week! The students absolutely love this opportunity. Ask your child about this!

Parent volunteers are welcome! Join us as we provide creative guidance. A parent volunteer sign-up sheet has been created on “VolunteerSpot” at the following link: http://vols.pt/tDxaXT

Parking, Pick-up & Drop Off
Please do not ask your child to cross the street to your waiting car. Children must cross the street at the crosswalk where the crossing guard is stopping traffic.
