Message from the Principal

Gay Bourguignon

A quintessential neighborhood school, Patwin is home to approximately 400 students —we have transitional kindergarten - 6th grade. Our Patwin teachers are experts in their subject matter and several have earned statewide honors for their expertise in areas of history, social studies, math, writing and science. Our teachers work closely with UC Davis in the areas of the History Project, the Writing Project as well as the Math Project. They bring back research and innovative ideas on how to engage our students in the curriculum. Our diverse population is typical of a university town. Patwin families speak over 19 different languages. Patwin is a smaller elementary school, allowing faculty and staff to really get to know each student. Patwin's dynamic PTA works closely with the Principal to provide enrichment experiences for our students. This strong partnership between parents and staff results in a positive climate for both students and families.
