Girls Build LA Leadership Summit

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.

Principal's Message

Principal’s Message:

Dearest Teachers, staff, and students:

I realize that teaching can be rewarding, challenging, and a constant push forward toward academic success and empowerment. I want you to know that I am in the trenches with you pushing hard to make sure that all students make it to the finish line. We must work hard and take what we do seriously because all of our students deserve a good education.

Lastly, thank you in advance, for attending the Back to School Night and for speaking with, parent about, classroom expectations and how they can work with their children for academic success.
