Families - We hope you are enjoying the adventures of Celeste and Joseph at the Pirrie Plantation. As you can see from the first week's readings this is a story to be read as a family because the students will benefit from parental assistance with both the historical references and the vocabulary. We appreciate that extra time spent on the more challenging aspects of the writing and in school we will provide additional support. We are confident that together the joy and adventure of the story will shine through. Don't forget you can visit the Patton LMC webpage (http://pattonlmc.weebly.com/) to access the reading schedule and chapter videos.
We also hope you have carved out your "reading nest" and will send us photos. Be sure to watch the twitter feed #1book1Patton to see all that is happening at school and at home!
Patton Kindness Challenge
Our students are doing a wonderful job with our weekly kindness challenges. This past week has been to perform a random act of kindness toward another person. We always appreciate when families can help reinforce these concepts at home. Below you will find a list of the kindness challenges we have had so far.
Upcoming Three Day Weekends
October 9 - School closed / Columbus Day
October 16 - No student attendance / School Improvement Day
Below is a summary of Patton clubs available to our students at various times of the year. Prior to clubs starting, details and permission slips are sent home in backpacks.
SCREENAGERS (Repeat Information)
Here you will find a link to RSVP for the viewing of Screenagers at Patton Elementary School, on October 18, beginning promptly at 7:00pm. This is a viewing for PARENTS ONLY. We are limited to 250 seats, so please be sure to let us know if you need to cancel your reservation. If both parents want to attend, each parent needs to fill out the RSVP form individually. This will help us with tracking the number of parents who will be attending.
We truly believe this will be a valuable experience for all who attend whether your children have their own devices, you are considering purchasing your child a device, or even if you feel you are a few years away from purchasing them a device. There is something in here for everyone, and the primary goal would be that this documentary would be a catalyst for a great conversation at home about devices and screen time.
If you want additional information about the documentary, Screenagers, please follow this link. We look forward to seeing many of you on October 18.
