Hello Patton Community,
I hope everyone was able to stay warm this week. Mother Nature has not been very friendly so far for 2015. Below are your updates, and as always, you can find your PTA updates here.
Parent input is vital in a school environment. Through the 5Essentials Survey, you are able to express your thoughts and views about the school as whole. In any survey situation, the more who participate the more useful that data becomes. Currently, only about 1/4 of the parents have completed the survey. Please take time to share your thoughts by completing the survey found here.
For parents interested in learning more about PARCC, there are many resources for parents that can be found at http://www.parcconline.org/for-parents. Our testing for the Performance-Based Assessment (P.B.A.) will begin on March 2. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 have already begun preparing for the format of the test as it will look different from the ISAT test they may be used to.
To those who ate at Noodles & Co. this past Monday. Patton School and the PTA greatly appreciate your support!
