Good morning Palisades Families,

Hawaii receives approximately $35 million in impact aid because parents complete and return the federal survey cards. Funds supplement purchase and payment of supplies and resources, school utilities, construction, and other educational needs.

Please drive through to pick up your child's federal survey card tomorrow, October 14 from 11:00-2:00. You may also pick up on Thursday, October 15 from 11:00-2:00 or drop off completed cards.

If you cannot drive through during these times, please stop by the office on Friday, October 16 from 8:00-4:00.

Thank you for supporting Palisades!
