School is an ‘overlooked jewel’
I would like to call the community’s attention to one of our overlooked “jewels” in Solano County. In fact, you will find this outstanding institution right here in Vacaville.
This overlooked ‘jewel” is none other than Eugene Padan Elementary School. On Wednesday, March 25, 2015, the community was invited to see our students shine in our second annual “Leadership Day.” Many of you in the community are not aware that Eugene Padan School is transforming into a Leadership Academy where all staff and students study and practice Stephen Covey’s “Leader in Me” program: “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” We were quite fortunate on Wednesday to have as our guests, the Mayor of Vacaville, Superintendent of Solano County, Superintendent of Vacaville Unified, County Supervisor, and other important dignitaries in our community. They were treated to songs and speeches by students how the study of the “Seven Habits” has changed their young lives.
