Writing and Arithmetic.  More likely, the child will talk about computer lab, music class, or time spent in their school’s garden…the FUN stuff that integrates their core curriculum into real life experiences, and enriches their education and learning ability. Like any public charter school in LAUSD, Palisades Elementary is highly resource constrained.  Without fundraiser events like the school’s upcoming Online Auction, Palisades Elementary students would not have access to any of the FUN, enriching programs that kids love and remember, and help to prepare them for the changing world.

This year, the school’s Auction has more than 800 incredible items.  In a historic move , Palisades Elementary Charter School in Pacific Palisades is opening its treasured Online Auction with hundreds of items to surrounding communities and beyond.

Anyone can bid and buy one-of-kind travel opportunities under market-value.
