Thank you again to all of our parent volunteers who helped with traffic and classroom parties. Your contributions went a long way to making the day successful and fun. It is always fun to see students in their costumes and watch them parade through the neighborhood. It was equally enjoyable to see our students having a blast at their classroom parties. If you click on the link below, you can access the many photos that were taken during the afternoon of Halloween.
Pennies for Patients
Monday will be the last day that we will be collecting donations for the Pennies for Patients fundraiser. We understand that there have been a good number of needy causes which have drawn needed attention recently. We simply wanted to give a reminder as many students have stated they’ve “forgotten” to bring theirs in. So, take a moment to round up whatever you may have around to send in to this great cause (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society)!
Thank you so much for your continued generosity!
Patton Student Council
Parent Teacher Conferences - November 20 & 21
This Wednesday at 7PM, a link to Parent Teacher conference sign ups will be emailed to all Patton families. Conferences will be offered Monday the 20th and Tuesday the 21st, which will be non-student-attendance days. Parents of Miss Donovan's Kindergarten classes will have additional conferences available the afternoon of Friday November 17th.
Picture Retake Day - November 14th
Students who are retaking their school photo on Tuesday morning need to bring their original photo envelope with them to school. Those who missed the original picture day will need a completed order form to receive photos. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
From Our Nurse and Social Worker...
Patton monitors weather conditions daily. Weather permitting, all of our children participate in outdoor play times. Studies have demonstrated significant benefits when fresh air and free playtime are included in the school day. Studies also show that children who are properly dressed will not become ill or worsen viral illnesses due to weather conditions.
All children well enough to come to school are expected to participate in outdoor play. The only exception is a note from a doctor indicating 1) a diagnosed reason to limit fresh air playtime and 2) a prescribed length of time the child needs to remain indoors. We will not honor parent requests.
Sarah Klancnik, Patton Nurse (email@example.com)
With the colder weather upon us, please reach out to me if you are in need of, or in need of resources for, winter items such as boots, coats, gloves, etc.
