Good Afternoon Patton Community,
We hope everyone had a great week of school. We just have a couple updates for you listed below, most importantly we wanted to highlight the themes of the upcoming grade level performances.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Eric Larson & Kelly Vignocchi
Music A-Plenty at Patton!
Mr. Whitaker and students are working diligently on the following upcoming musical productions. We wanted to highlight them so all were aware of the dates for each grade level performance.
Kindergarten Registration 2016-17
If you have a child turning 5 by Sept 1, 2016, please visit the District website to complete the brief, online pre-registration: sd25.org
K-2 Parents --- DREAMBOX
We wanted to provide you with some information about Dreambox because we have noticed an increase in students or siblings logging on to accounts that do not belong to them. Dreambox is an adaptive math program that provides real feedback and information to teachers to help design instruction for students. When students log into another’s account, or when a sibling plays on an account it skews the data rendering it unusable for teacher instruction.
Each student’s account is unique to them and it must remain that way in order for the program to be effective and for the data to be authentic.
Valentines Day 2016
Valentines parties are scheduled to begin at approximately 2:30pm on Friday, February 12. Room reps should double check with their classroom teachers to verify the start time as there may be a few exceptions. If your child is passing out Valentines cards to other students, the cards cannot have any candy or food attached to them. Trinkets such as pencils, erasers, stickers, etc., are great alternatives as long as they are not edible. Items such as goodie bags filled with treats or candy are also not permitted.
