Box Tops For Education
A very BIG THANK YOU to Mrs. Gartrell who will be taking over the Box Tops For Education program at Patton. An equally big thank you to Mrs. Cosley for her many years of service to Patton running the Box Tops program. Here is a link to read Mrs. Gartrell's Box Top letter, or you may read it below.
The Wild Robot
Thank you to everyone for following along and reading The Wild Robot as a family. Just a reminder that you can find the schedule for reading on the Patton LMC website. Also, please see the video below from Mrs. Melamed of an activity that you can all participate in to help bring Roz and the island to life in the commons at Patton. We have also enjoyed see families tweet their pictures using the hashtag #1book1patton.
Artsonia Permission Slips
We ran into difficulty when printing out the permission slips and how student names were populating on the form. In an effort to minimize any confusion that might occur we decided to delay when these slips are sent home. You can anticipate them to come home next week.
Hard Lockdown Drill
Patton students did a fantastic job on our hard lockdown drill today with the police department. The officers commented on how incredibly efficient and safe the process went. Congratulations to everyone.
A Message from Dr. Bein regarding Halloween Parties
Dear Elementary School Parents:
One of the wonderful things about Arlington Heights School District 25 is the partnership between staff and parents. Together, we create amazing experiences for our students!
Two of the upcoming, traditional events we have in AHSD25 are our elementary school parades and classroom-based celebrations for Halloween. We are excited to see our students dressed up in their favorite costumes and excited to celebrate with them! This year, food will not be served during classroom celebrations. Please do not send any food items to school for distribution to students. Our Halloween parades and classroom parties will focus on the fun of celebrating together through holiday games and crafts and activities.
Halloween classroom parties will be on Monday, October 31, 2016. Following our classroom parties, the Village of Arlington Heights hosts Trick or Treat hours from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
Please do thank our teachers, principals, and our PTA room parents for their work in creating fun, engaging Halloween events for our students! I know our students are going to have a great time!
I encourage you to also join the Village of Arlington Heights in Trunk or Treat on Friday, October 28th from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at the Public Works building. This is a great event where our students can collect some Halloween goodies from local businesses and Arlington Heights organizations in a safe, indoor environment.
Thank you for partnering with AHSD25 to help our students have a healthy and enjoyable Halloween experience. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (847) 758-4870.
Lori D. Bein, Ed.D.
A Message From Arlington Heights Police Officer Veenstra
There is no stopping, standing, or parking on the entire street of Maude near Harvard. Signs at that location prohibit it. No pickup/dropoff of students is allowed. This practice has obstructed the view of pedestrians crossing Maude and motorists driving, which creates a safety concern for the students who cross there. Thank you for your consideration.
