Halloween Pick up and Drop Off - Lunch
If you are picking up and dropping off your children during lunch, we will follow the same procedures as we do before and after school. Please be sure to have them back at school by 1:05 so we can have everyone in their seats and accounted for by 1:10. Students for whom we have not received a completed permission form by 7:00am on Monday will stay at school.
4th and 5th Grade Book Club
Read No Talking by Andrew Clements by November 10, and join our book club at lunch recess in the LMC led by Aviana Cleary-Cruz, and Emily Patyck and sponsored by Ms. Melamed. Check out the book now from the LMC or AHML.
Lost and Found
We are already accumulating fleece coats, as well as other student items in our lost and found bin. Please remind your student to check the lost and found for any missing items, plus you may stop by any time to take a look yourself! Don't forget to label all coats, gloves, lunch items, etc. Thank you.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
On Monday, the Student Council will begin a school wide fundraiser to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A letter will be coming home explaining a little about the organization. The letter states that you can donate online. We ask that you send your donation directly to the school so we can calculate the donations of each individual class. At the end of the fundraiser the class who collected the most money will win a pasta party donated from the Olive Garden. Thank you so much for you kindness.
The Wild Robot
We hope that you all enjoyed reading with your families. Much time and effort went into the planning of this community book read. Everything that was done was created by Patton staff, particularly Mrs. Melamed and Miss Maksymec. The students were even treated to an all school Skype session with the author, Peter Brown. Below is a video that summarizes some of the classroom experiences and as you navigate toward the end of the video, you will find some student interviews. Thank you all for participating with us on this exciting adventure.
A big thank you to Mrs. Flight, Mrs. Catsaros, and all of the PTA volunteers for providing such a wonderful community experience, the Pumpkin Patch. One of my favorite aspects of the Patton community is that everyone comes together at school events and enjoys being with one another. We hope you enjoy your donuts, apples, and baked goodies that were sold at the event.

National Walk to School Day
National Walk to School Day was a huge success, thanks to the PTA! It was so much fun to see all of the families walking and biking to school. There was a strong sense of community that could be felt with everyone there. Hopefully your children enjoyed seeing Officer Veenstra, Lt. Larson, and the Thomas Timberwolf as well. Great job everyone!
The Wild Robot
In case you missed the email that was sent out this morning here is a video related to the final chapters of The Wild Robot that Mrs. Melamed put together for everyone. We hope this experience has been great for you and your family.
Just a friendly reminder that on 10/14 from 3:35-5:00, the Patton PTA is sponsoring our annual pumpkin patch event. We hope you can make it!
