Dear Palisades Community:

The Palisades Patch is a weekly publication that is emailed to all of our families and any subscribers of our Web site. We publicize information that is both important and fun about our students, staff, school board and community - we want to keep you informed! In addition, we include flyers and announcements for upcoming events in each edition.

If you would like to have information covered in the Patch, please send it to me at [email protected] preferably by Wednesday before it's publication on Friday.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve our community! Have a wonderful school year!


Donna V. Holmes

Director of Community Relations and Development

About Me: I have been employed by Palisades since 2002. I attended Holy Family and DeSales Universities - concentration in management/marketing. My husband, Gerry, and I have been married for 35 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 graduated from Castleton University in VT with a degree in medical science and a minor in psychology - both are gainfully employed! We also have a granddaughter (my son's daughter), Gabby, who lives with us.  She is the light of our lives and we could not imagine our lives without all of her antics! We have a dog that completes our home. Some of my interests, besides my family, include skiing, reading, yoga, camping, hiking, music, and having fun with friends!

Along with my duties relative to all district communications, grant writing, safety and security, programming outside of the school day for students and the community, and supporting our Health and Safety Plan, I volunteer as vice president of the Palisades Community Foundation.  Click here for my Resume

Please feel free to contact me any time via email or phone. I will get back to you as soon as I am able. Wishing your students and family success this school year!
