Capannari's Coolest School Competition
Monday felt a bit more like the "coldest school" competition, but nevertheless, families continued to come and show their support for Patton. Thank you to the PTA, staff volunteers, students, and the community for all of the support.
Patton Senior Walk: May 24, 2018
Patton will be hosting the second annual Senior Walk this year. For Seniors who attended Patton, please use this link to RSVP to the event. Parents of Seniors are welcome as well. It was great to see so many returning students last year, and truly inspirational for our students. We hope many will be able to attend. Please pass the word to families you may know who would be interested.
11th Annual Walkathon
Patton is continuing with the annual Walkathon, which is currently scheduled for May 16, from 4:00-5:30. This is our 11th annual Walkathon, and we hope that it will continue to be as successful as the previous years. There is a Garibaldi's dine and share fundraiser that is scheduled for Thursday, May 10 from 4:00-7:00. By showing the flyer below, 20% will go towards Make-A-Wish.
Allergy Awareness Week
May 14-19, 2018 is Allergy Awareness week! For the third year in a row, District 25 will participate in events during Allergy Awareness Week to raise awareness of those who have allergies within our school community. Last year, we participated in the #tealtakeover and encouraged both staff and students to wear teal to show their support. We are again offering families have the opportunity to purchase Allergy Awareness Week t-shirts as a part of the celebration. The shirts feature a design by one of our very own staff members and match the shirts worn by district staff.
Shirts must be paid for at the time of order (credit cards only this year), and will be available for pick up ay the District Administration Building at 1200 South Dunton the week prior. Please note that we will not be able to exchange shirts or add to the order once it has been placed. All orders are due by April 24, 2018.
Please visit https://sd25.revtrak.net/ and click on the Allergy Awareness Week tile to order! If you have any questions, please contact the Student Services department at the District Office at 847-758-4900.
