    The Palisades Patch is a bulletin of school and community news which is usually shared on a weekly basis.  If you wish to notify our community of events and happenings or other family-friendly news, please send it to me via email by Wednesday, and I will do my best to get the information into the Patch for that week!
    I also send out an electronic "Friday Folder" to all of our staff, families and registered community members with any flyers or announcements.  If you wish to send something to our community, the flyer is best sent to me as a pdf, or preferably, as a jpeg file - this tends to work best for our smart phone users. 
    There are usually about 2,000 hits each week on our Patch each week!  It serves as the "news you can use" type of page, so don't hesitate to share information with me to distribute and to tell your friends and neighbors who do not have students in our schools to register to receive this information.  They can sign up to receive the Patch by clicking the "register" button in the upper right corner of the Web site's main page.
    I look forward to hearing from you this year - please send any submissions to dholmes@palisadessd.org - please note that the emails are sent from info@palisadessd.org - DO NOT RESPOND to that email, since I do not check it often; however, I do check my dholmes@palisadessd.org account regularly.  Also, please make sure that the emails from info@palisadessd.org are not blocked by your email service provider.
    I hope that you have a wonderful school year and that you enjoy the Patch!
    Editor of the Palisades Patch
    About the Editor:  I have been employed by Palisades since 2002.  I attended Holy Family University and DeSales University for management/marketing. My husband, Gerry, and I have been married for nearly 30 years and we have two children - James and Lindsay - both are graduates of Palisades (2007 and 2011 respectively).  James graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University with a degree in mechanical engineering and Lindsay is attending Castleton State College in VT, aiming for a degree in physical therapy.  We also have a granddaughter, Gabby, who is 2 and is tons of fun!
