Patton Kindness Update and T-shirt Order
Today Patton students participated in a kindness assembly where we celebrated all we have done in the area of kindness! We also want our kindness campaign to live on throughout the course of the year, and our teachers have put together a great video highlighting what we have accomplished, which can be seen below. The Patton staff will soon be wearing kindness t-shirts, and we wanted to provide you with an opportunity to purchase one for your child(ren) and/or yourself. An order form will be sent home on Tuesday (or you can download it here), and please know that there is no expectation for students to purchase one. We simply wanted to offer this up in case you are interested.
History Up Close
On October 6th, Patton fifth graders attended District 25's annual Historical Reenactment Day. Each year, students have the opportunity to explore life in the late 1700's. The event was covered by the Arlington Heights Post; you can read the article HERE.
Patton students may not take any medications (including over the counter items such as cough drops or ibuprofen) without a District authorization form. The form, which you can get HERE, must be signed by both a parent and physician; the signed form can be dropped off, scanned and emailed to the office, or faxed to 847-394-6681. All medications must be kept in the nurse's office. For a temporary condition (such as a headache), a parent may come to the office and administer the medication themselves.
SCREENAGERS - Next Week!
Here you will find a link to RSVP for the viewing of Screenagers at Patton Elementary School, next Wednesday 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. If you want additional information about the documentary, Screenagers, please follow this link. We look forward to seeing many of you on October 18.

A Message from Mrs. Ryl
Dear Patton Families,
I wanted to share this news with everyone at the same time: I have made the decision to retire in June 2018 at the end of this school year. Thank you for the opportunity to care for you and your children for the past eight years. It has been an honor and a privilege to be able to end my 20+ year career in District 25 at Patton School.
Open Door with the Superintendent will be cancelled on October 17, 2017. Superintendent Bein is always available to meet by appointment.
Please contact Lana O'Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-758-4871 if you
