Welcome back to another great year at Patton! A packet was sent home in backpacks this week containing Patton School and PTA information to help us get the year off to a great start. The information is repeated below for reference. Patton PTA members will receive their calendar and directory in the coming weeks. Additional information about PTA can be found on the website at http://www.ah-pattonpta.com/. We look forward to a great year and hope to see you at the first PTA meeting on September 9th at 7:30pm!
PTA Membership - It is not too late to join the PTA! You can join and pay for your membership online using the District 25 Webstore at https://sd25.revtrak.net/tek9.asp?pg=products&grp=61.
Traffic Team Volunteers Needed!
We have an immediate need for traffic volunteers both before and after school to help our students enter and exit the building safely. If you can help even once a week from approximately 8:40-9:05 or 3:20-3:45, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers on the 1st grade side may park along the LMC wall during your shift, which is a great benefit to parents during inclement weather!
Volunteer Sign-Up - If you haven’t already, please consider completing the Volunteer Form found on the PTA website at http://www.ah-pattonpta.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/volunteer-form-14-15-website.pdf, which lists many volunteer opportunities. We have an immediate need for traffic volunteers both before and after school to help our students enter and exit the building safely.

Email Communication - Mr. Larson’s weekly email link will include the PTA Newsletter describing upcoming events and reminders. PTA will also use a google group email list to send information. An initial email confirming you are a part of this group will be sent to PTA members. Please let us know if you would like to be added to or removed from the list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outreach Committee – If your family needs an extra hand or two to help you through a tough time, the PTA Outreach Committee is here to help! Possible help might include providing meals, arranging a carpool, or outreach in the event of a serious illness or death in the family. Please contact your PTA co-Presidents if this need ever arises, or contact Mr. Larson if you prefer to make a confidential request.
