Principal’s Corner

Witter Ranch Elementary Principal Patrick Birdsong

Dear Witter Ranch families, 

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year. My name is Patrick Birdsong and I am very proud to be serving as the principal of Witter Ranch Elementary, a school that is excelling in so many ways. I believe that we will continue to be a excellent school, one that exemplifies excellence with the Common Core Standards and the Natomas Unified School District Vision- “All NUSD students graduate as college and career ready, productive, responsible, and engaged global citizens.” 

I bring to Witter Ranch over 20 years of educational experience and practice serving K-6 and K-8 schools in Sacramento and the Bay Area. Prior to Witter Ranch I served as principal at Pioneer Elementary, Michael J. Castori and Golden Valley Charter.

I attended California State University, Sacramento, where I played football and graduated with a degree in Social Science. I received my teaching credential in Urban Education at San Francisco State University and my Administrative Credential in Urban Leadership from CSUS.

My wife and I are raising two children, a girl and a boy in the Citrus Park neighborhood of Sacramento. They keep us very busy with all their activities and events. I enjoy watching and/or coaching my children in sports such as soccer, rugby and baseball. 

Again, welcome to the 2018-19 school year. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please feel free to stop by the front office or contact me at (916) 567-5620.  I look forward to seeing you in August.


Mr. Patrick Birdsong
