Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. I am excited to serve as the principal of Patton Elementary School, work alongside our community, and the entire Patton team!  I have proudly worked in public education for the past 26 school years. I am now beginning my 18th school year as an elementary school principal in the Garden Grove Unified School District. My multicultural background has always helped provide me with the insight into the challenges and strengths that our culturally diverse families bring to our schools. 

Patton Elementary has a strong school and family partnership. This connection will always result in the most positive outcomes for all of our scholars. We are also so fortunate to have an amazing PTA at Patton! Our PTA supports all scholars through field trips, assemblies, technology and more!

I’m excited to begin this new school year and I look forward to meeting all of our families and scholars!  Please know our school is always here to support you and please reach out if you need anything.

Sincerely, 

Kai Chang

Principal
