Hello Patton Community,
I hope you and your children had a great week. We have officially completed the first week of PARCC testing and will conclude the testing next Tuesday. We will have make up testing scheduled during the days that follow for those who were absent.
I hope you have an opportunity to get outside and be with your family this weekend. We have a few updates and flyers for you below. Have a wonderful weekend.
First Grade Getting Swamped!
The swamp is all a-buzz with party preparations galore...the frogs have learned a new dance they want to share. The tadpoles are growing appendages (yikes!) and the dragonfly larvae need encouragement to spread their wings and fly. Naturally, the turtles are running late! Families are welcome to attend the performance:

5th Graders - Sign Up for “Rockin’ With The Cops” Before May 2nd

PATTON ART SHOW - SAVE THE DATE, APRIL 26!
Patton is holding its very own school-wide Art Show on Tuesday, April 26, beginning at 6:30pm. Each student will have one piece of art framed and on display in the Commons area for the evening, and we will have some fun activities to do as well! The cost of the artwork is $25, however, if you do not want to purchase the artwork, your child will be able to have the work back unframed, and there is no cost to you for that. We hope the students and all of you enjoy seeing the artwork on display for Patton's first all school art show!
2016-17 Class Placement Feedback Form - Parents
If you click here, you will find a form that you can fill out should you like to provide the school with any information you feel would be important as we consider placement for your child. Please know that the placement process for all of the Patton students is extensive and well thought out. To that end, it is important to understand that requests for a specific teacher will not be considered, as allowing parents to request teachers puts a significant strain on an already extensive process. All staff members are committed to providing the best education for your children. This form is to be completed by Friday, April 29, 2016.
