Padilla Elementary School
Providing every student with the keys to open the doors of their future.
A Message from Principal Purfurst
We continue to face labor challenges. You can help. Many parents and community members support us in the important work of substituting. We can use more teacher and para substitutes. Our teacher and para workforce has grown but our sub pool has not yet recovered to match this growth. As a 27J sub, you can choose your location and your work days (hopefully here at Padilla!). You can talk to me or our school secretary Yuliana Perez or contact directly our 27J sub coordinator Julie Trujillo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-655-2900.
The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) has training and a recruitment stipend to get you started (CDE LINK). Check us out at Workat27J.com. Please share with your friends and on social media. I appreciate your continued support of Padilla!
An Update from Dean Hawkins
We will practice a Secure Drill (formerly called a Lock Out) this week. This is a drill we practice if there is a safety concern outside of our school. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about any of the safety drills we practice at Padilla!
Guardians on Guard:
Through our community survey, we are aware of the desire for our community to be involved more in an everyday setting! With that, we would like to invite all that are interested to help ensure the safety of our students before school, after school or during lunch recess. We are always looking for more adult supervision during these unstructured times in our daily schedule and would welcome anyone that has time to help! If you are interested in volunteering your time at any point during the school day for Guardians on Guard, please reach out to Josh Hawkins at your convenience!
