Rocket Lab Returns to Patton - This Club is Open to all 4th and 5th Graders!
Your child is invited to join us as we learn all about Newton’s Third Law of Motion; "FOR EVERY ACTION, THERE IS AN EQUAL AND OPPOSITE REACTION." Participating 4th and 5th graders will demonstrate their understanding of this Law and observe how it works by building and launching their very own model rockets! Cost to participate is $10.00. Rockets are now available through the school store: click HERE to order. The deadline to order is April 18th. Rockets will be built during school in early May and will be launched after school on Tuesday, May 14 from 3:45-4:30 (rain date is May 16.)
We hope to see you there!

Parent Feedback Form for 2019-20
Here you will find a link to the form you can fill out should you like to provide the school with any information you feel would be important as we consider placement for your child. Please know that the placement process for all of the Patton students is extensive and well thought out. To that end, it is important to understand that requests for a specific teacher will not be considered, as allowing parents to request teachers puts a significant strain on an already extensive process. All staff members are committed to providing the best education for your children. This form is to be completed by Friday, April 27, 2019.
