Message from the Principal

Greetings new and returning Patwin Hawk families!

Patwin is a place where every child feels like they belong. It’s a place where school staff and families come together to create a joyous place of learning and acceptance. With the support of our wonderful PTA, we envision, plan, and deliver an exciting calendar of academic enrichment along with lots of fun along the way. Leveraging the strong community connections of our PTA, School Site Council (SSC) and English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), we are able to gather critical input from parents and other stakeholders that is woven into everything we do at Patwin. We have a rich Multi Tiered System of Support (MTSS) program that identifies and assists students that need extra support as well as students that benefit from additional academic challenges. The relatively small size of the Patwin community fosters a close-knit atmosphere where we know the names and needs of every student on campus, and are able to support each of them in individualized fashion throughout their TK-6 educational journey.

It’s my pleasure to be your Patwin principal and I welcome you and your students to a community that is truly a family. I look forward to celebrating our traditions and successes with you, and partnering with you to create learning environments and practices that bring out the best in our students. Be well!

Ben Kingsbury, Principal
