Good Afternoon Patton Community,
I hope you all had a great week. We have a series of updates for you to go through. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions and enjoy your weekend!
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
HELP WANTED! We are looking for volunteers to share their hobbies, careers, or interests with our 3rd-5th graders! These students will be working on Personalized Learning experiences this year. During these experiences, students select their own topics, formulate questions, and develop plans to guide their explorations. We are hoping to SPARK new interests by having community members share their passions! 5 minutes. 20 slides. 1 passion. What would you say?
Our event, called SP*RK, is modeled after IgniteChicago. We are looking for volunteers to share their experiences in a short 5 minute presentation! Please click here for an example or watch the clip below!
SP*RK will take place on Monday, October 5th from 2-3pm, but we need your help! If you have any questions or would be willing to present to our 3rd-5th graders, please contact Kristin Maksymec (firstname.lastname@example.org)for more details. You do not need to be a polished presenter in order to do this. The kids will love seeing you present about something you are passionate about. Thank you!
Calling all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students! Would you like to be a reporter for the Patton Press, our online monthly newspaper?
Reporters brainstorm ideas, research, write, and then create the layout for articles about Patton School happenings, students and teachers as well as their hobbies, interests, current events, or creative writing,
with links to further information, cool websites and video too.
Whether you are new or a veteran reporter, click this link to sign up for the September/October and/or November/December issues. (We will have another sign up for the Winter/Spring issues).
Please consider joining ABC/25 and help our school earn a $2500 grant. We need 25% of our community to join in order to earn the $2500 grant. For more information, visit http://abc25foundation.com/grants-and-programs/. Thank you in advance to those who are already members!
