Greetings, my name is Judy Benavidez this will be my 4th year as principal at Palo Alto Elementary. There are many exciting things happening here at our school. First and foremost, through the generosity of Panda Express restaurants, we are the proud recipients of a grant.
This grant will help with the implementation of FranklinCovey's “The Leader In Me” at our school. “The Leader in Me” is a whole-school transformation process. It teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
I am extremely excited and I look forward to building a positive partnership among my teachers, families, and community to provide an exceptional educational experience where each child is empowered to develop their strengths to acquire the skills necessary for them to achieve success in academics, and in life as well.
