School Official Point of View

Over 100 members of the Badillo community came out to read and play fun, interactive reading games together on September 22nd. Teachers facilitated a variety of reading games, like Tick-Tack-Toe a Word, String Stories, and Stretch-a-Word. Mrs. Drake began the night with an introduction to our AVID program, explaining just what becoming an AVID Elementary School means for Badillo students. The evening culminated with an exciting raffle. Parents and students had the chance to win great prizes that included gift cards to Amazon, iTunes, and Starbucks, and every student got to take home a book! Special thanks to the Badillo PTA and teachers for all their support to make this fun night happen for our community; and thanks to all the families who took the time to attend and show that reading is not only a very important skill, but can be a lot of fun!

On Thursday, April 21st, Badillo students were treated to a very special assembly. Author, Rebecca Lynn Morales, came to speak with the students about the publishing of her first book, Walter Plume and the Dehydrated Imagination. Mrs. Morales shared her story of how and why she decided to write her first book and what that process was like for her. She encouraged the students to be like her and to follow their dreams and never give up, no matter what obstacles may get in their way. Many of our students took advantage of the opportunity to purchase her book and have her sign it with a personal message to them. That night, Badillo had our Book Fair Kick-Off at the Barnes and Noble in Glendora. Our kindergarteners got everything off to a great start by performing all the color songs they have been learning this year and Mrs. Drake read several books aloud to the children who attended. Badillo received 20% of all sales over the weekend. We appreciated the partnership with Barnes and Noble and their commitment to help elementary schools get books into the hands of our students!

The technology team set up the new Makerbot Printer and Scanner at Badillo in November. There was a learning curve but they got the hang of it. They then proceeded to Glen Oak later that day to set up Glen Oak's equipment! MakerBot is a company that manufactures 3D printers. A "3D printer" sounds like something boring, so MakerBot Industries has chosen an excellent name. A 3D printer is a device that creates physical objects from digital plans. You can fill it with ABS (what Lego blocks are made of) or PLA (biodegradable and made of corn), download or make designs on a computer, press "go," and create replicable, real objects. We can’t wait to see what the Panthers and Eagles create!

Badillo Elementary School is going AVID, that’s Advancement Via Individual Determination. All teachers, Kindergarten through sixth grade, have attended training and are enthusiastically implementing AVID strategies in their classrooms. Walking through rooms one will see many examples of AVID systems at work. Students taking two and three column notes, setting SMART goals, creating artwork showing “Successful Students,” using organizational tools that encourage them to be accountable and responsible, like agendas, subject notebooks, backpacks, and book bags, and lots of collaborative leaning. AVID’s mission is “to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.” Badillo is working collaboratively to cultivate intrinsic motivation by creating a vision of academic success. Getting Badillo students, even at the kinder level, talking about where they want to go to college is a big focus at our school. Classrooms have adopted a college and use that as an overall theme in their rooms. Our slogan, “Badillo Knowledge will get you College,” is visible throughout our campus. With a purpose to provide all our students with fundamental skills to promote academic success, self-efficacy, and self-advocacy, all Badillo students are on their way to becoming successful, life-long learners and, eventually, college graduates!

This school is excellent. It's amazing how the principal and teachers do it. I am so happy I put my child in Badillo and not another public school in the Charter Oak District. Although I wouldn't have 'hand-picked' their new principal. My daughter has attended Badillo since first grade. She has blossomed into a third grader who is reading high school level! She adores her teachers,and the faculty and effort the staff puts into these young minds is a miracle. A+ for them! My daughter also includes daycare in her day,which is also wonderful. PTA is amazing. Keep Up The Good Work Panthers!!!
