Welcome!



Welcome to Palisades Elementary School! I am excited to have you visit our website and share information with you about our school and all the wonderful things happening here.

Palisades Elementary enters its eleventh year as we begin the 2017-18 school year.  We will start this year with more than 575 Kindergarten-5th grade students and 28 preschoolers. We currently have two half day preschool classes for four year olds and four sections of each grade level, kindergarten through fifth grade.

In addition, our staff includes an art, physical education, technology, media, and music teacher, along with a full time counselor. We also offer a High Ability Learner curriculum, speech and language support, reading assistance, and Special Education for qualified students.

The entire staff at Palisades is dedicated, creative, and enthusiastic. They hold high expectations for students and strive to improve student achievement. My staff, from teachers to support staff, truly cares about our students and are willing to do whatever it takes for all to find success.

We value the support and input of our parents and community and encourage a cooperative partnership with the school. We are able to create a community of learners with the combined efforts of the students, staff, parents, and the community

Palisades Elementary is a great school with a positive learning environment. I am proud to be part of the Palisades Community and the Gretna Public Schools.
