We look forward to a fun and productive year with our Booster Club. Many thanks to all of the parents who serve on the Booster Club and make Padan the great school that it is! 


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:

Diego Contreras- President

Franco Mendoza-Ortiz- Vice President

Secretary- Gabriela Avila
