Principal's Message

 Welcome to the 2023-24 School Year!!
Together we're Better!

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year!

With PRIDE in our pockets and motivation in our hearts we come together to make everything better.

Here’s a bit of inspiration to set us on the path:

Life is difficult and dangerous. Anyone who would attempt to do it alone is simply mad. We know to always do difficult things with a buddy. . . we should trust others to join us on the journey. As individuals, we’re useless. We can’t lift heavy weight and we can’t solve complex problems.
But together?
Together we are remarkable.
(Simon Sinek, Together is Better)

We demonstrate our values of Together we’re Better! through our Pali PRIDE Practices:
  • Peace Practicing Conflict resolution and “I” Statements
  • Respect Practicing Mutual Respect
  • Inclusion Practicing The Right to Participate/The Right to Pass
  • Diversity Practicing Appreciations, No Put-Downs
  • Equity Practicing Attentive Listening
We live the practice of Together we’re Better! in our Mission and Vision:
Mission: Palisades Charter Elementary School is dedicated to academic excellence, an appreciation of the arts, and the promotion of positive social awareness.
Vision: Palisades Charter Elementary School will provide excellence in education in an innovative, supportive and socially respectful environment.
We are ready for an amazing school year - Together we’re Better!
