Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher conferences are scheduled for March 22 and March 23. Our current plan is to send all Patton families an email at 7:00pm on Sunday, March 4 with a link to our conference schedule through Sign Up Genius.
Recognize a Teacher
At Patton we encourage our students to live the "The Patton Way." Our teachers and staff strive to be an example for our students on a daily basis. If you would like to recognize a teacher for his/her efforts, please fill out this form and we will pass on the good news to them. Thank you in advance for sending an encouraging word.

Doctor's Note Needed to Stay Inside
All children well enough to come to school are expected to participate in outdoor play as well as gym class. The only exception is a note from a doctor indicating
1) a diagnosed reason to limit fresh air playtime and 2) a prescribed length
of time the child needs to remain indoors. We will not honor parent requests.

Food Drive Success!
Thanks are due all around for another successful food drive to benefit the homeless participants of the PADs program at Journeys Arlington Heights. Thank you to our Student Council for organizing our drive, staff for volunteering to get the donations to Journeys, Marianos for providing grocery carts, and most especially to our Patton families for once again stepping up to the plate.
Your generosity will help the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless from 37 towns in north and northwest suburban Cook County.
JumpRope for Heart
Thank you to 5th graders, Evelyn and Abby from the Patton Social Service Club, who worked with Mr. Dolniak to bring the heart healthy JumpRope for Heart to PE this week! Students jumped in groups, pairs, and individually at different stations during PE class, using small and large jump ropes. A lot of heart healthy fun!

We had an amazing turnout for STEAM Night! Wow! Thank you all who were able to attend. It looks like we had about 400 people in the building for the event. We hope that the time spent with families was valuable and that you found inspiration in some of the activities. For a link to some pictures, please click here.
Kindness in the Streets
As we continue our kindness campaign with out students, we ask that families and caregivers show kindness when picking up children after school. An easy way to do this is to show patience through the pick up and drop off line, remaining off your phone while on school grounds, and by keeping our neighbors driveways clear by not blocking them in the street. Your kindness is appreciated!
Attention 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Families!!
The PARCC Assessment window opens on Tuesday, March 6th and extends through Wednesday, March 21st. Students in grades 3-5 will be tested in English/Language Arts and Math. For the assessments, headphones are needed. Please send in headphones for your child to be kept at school until testing ends. Make sure they are labeled with your child's name. Students are encouraged to bring them in as soon as possible so that all are prepared for the first day of testing. Thank you for your support!
Project Linus Event
The Social Service Club is sponsoring a Linus Project Day on Friday, March 9th from 3:35-5:30PM. We hope families will join us to make a simple tied fleece blanket that will be distributed by a local Project Linus to children who are ill or traumatized in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug. If you are able to join, please sign and return the form that was sent home today, or print out the form at right. Bring some fleece if you can, but either way join us for a worthwhile and fun afternoon!
Lost & Found Overflowing
If your child is missing a water bottle, boots, a lunch box, or piece of clothing, please check out the lost and found. Don't forget to label anything and everything so we can return them right away.
