Hello Patton Community,
I hope everyone had a great spring break vacation. I know for me the time to just be with my family is very restorative. We are only four days in, but we jumped right back into school with both feet and there are a lot of things coming up. Please be sure to be checking the Patton calendar for our upcoming events. Below you will find a few updates for you.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Some information about upcoming PARCC Testing from the Department of Student Learning
In April, students in grades 3 through 5 will be participating in the PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) Assessment. The PARCC assessments identify students' current performance, point the way to what students need to learn to be ready for the next grade level and, by high school graduation, for college and/or a career. PARCC will be administered as a paper-based assessment in grades 3 through 5.
During your child’s testing window, you can help your child do his/her best on the test by:
Patton's testing sessions will begin on Monday, April 11 and will continue through Tuesday, April 19 for grades three through five with one test being given on each day.
Labels for Education - A BIG Thank You!
Campbell's is winding down this program, which is discontinuing at the end of this year due to declining participation. The good news for Patton is we "cashed in" all the proofs of purchase handed in by parents and staff and requested a large variety of items that will be used by our students in art, music, and PE classes, as well as at recess. We just received a large variety of playground balls, crayons, markers and sidewalk chalk, a parachute, pedometers as well as hand and desk bells! So thanks to everyone who contributed labels, they really paid off!
