San Benito Road Elementary School staff, in cooperation with the San Benito Community, is dedicated to providing opportunities for all students to excel in a safe and positive environment. We value each of our students as individuals and believe that our academic program can be the key to a successful school experience. Our students will develop critical thinking skills, gain respect for intercultural differences, have a sense of purpose in their lives and leave San Benito Road Elementary School as lifelong learners who will be knowledgeable, responsible citizens.

Dear San Benito Families,
Can you believe the start of a new school year is around the corner?  I am thrilled to begin a new year of learning, discovery and fun.
As the new Principal of San Benito Road Elementary School, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to become a member of this great school community.  San Benito is a fantastic place to learn with such a dedicated and creative staff.  Everyone is a part of the team and works together to help each student reach their full potential.
Just a bit about me…  I have 21 years of classroom teaching experience in California.  I left Bakersfield, California for Juneau, Alaska eleven years ago at which time I began my administrative career.  Seven wonderful years at the elementary level as principal, and now four years of supporting teachers and principals as the Director of Teaching and Learning for the Juneau School District.  I am eager to get back to the school level working with teachers, staff, students and families.  I’m certain the job of an elementary principal is the best job in the world and am so excited to return!
I look forward to meeting the many San Benito families, and cannot wait to meet the students!   Please do not hesitate to call or email.  My door is always open and I look forward to meeting with each one of you!
Have a great rest of the summer and we will see you soon! 
Ms. Patty Newman
