On Friday, December 15, 2017, fifty-four 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Pio Pico girls were among more than 10,000 others for a very unique experience at the Los Angeles Convention Center. These happy, enthusiastic girls were invited guests to learn about empowering girls to do great things by former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, current U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, former First Lady Michelle Obama, and several leaders in business.
Leading them on this exciting trip were Principal Dr. Miranda Ra'oof, Ms. Myles, Ms. Peraza, Ms. Lainey, and Mr. Walls. One student, Juanita Garcia, was even interviewed and did a fantastic job speaking on Fox 11 News! Not only were our students among the best dressed to fit the occasion, everyone cooperated to make this a trip one each will long remember.
Welcome to Pio Pico Middle School. As principal, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school. We are proud of our students, teachers, and educational programs. We have a very supportive school community, an outstanding staff, and great students. Our teachers and staff, along with students and parents, have the goal of providing what is best for our students. I am proud to be part of such a positive learning environment.
