The Palisades High School Library was the setting for a September 24th Parent Chat. The topic for the evening’s discussion was “Social Issues and Our High School Students.” Attendees were the parents of 9th graders at Palisades High School.

On October 12th, Palisades PACT sponsored a post-Homecoming “Pizza Social” at the Palisades High School cafeteria immediately following the homecoming game.

As summer begins many of us find ourselves reflecting back over the accomplishments of the past year – whether we have children in school or not. With the change of seasons comes a change in activities, the culmination of sports efforts, and a shift in focus.
The Elementary Student Ambassadors from the Palisades PACT pulled together for a fun night of activities. The ambassadors in the 4th and 5th grades planned a gathering for the three elementary schools and other local private schools.
