Padan has implemented four school wide rules to reinforce the presence of PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) on campus. The 4 Be's are everywhere on campus. Ask your child if they can identify them. We even have a schoolwide chant to the tune of "We Will Rock You" that goes along with our four schoolwide rules.
Congratulations to the following students for being voted in as Padan's Student Body Officers:

In response to parent feedback, Vacaville Unified School District is going green with parent notification forms this year! The 2016-2017 Annual Notification for Parents/Guardians & Students is now primarily here: Annual Notifications & Forms.
Please take a few minutes to view the document. An acknowledgement form went home with your student and should be returned by September 22nd, 2016.
If you prefer a printed version of the notification, please indicate this on the acknowledgement form. A copy will be sent home
with your student.
Thanks for your continued support of this and other green initiatives for students.
