Hello Patton Community,
We had a great full week back at Patton. As a reminder, next week there is no school for students on Monday or Tuesday and we will resume on Wednesday. There are a handful of important updates listed below. Please be sure to read through them and as always, let us know if you have any questions.
New Lunch Procedures
Beginning on Wednesday, we are going to slightly change our lunch hour. Currently, our lunch hour features 3 20 minute rotations where students eat lunch for 20 minutes and then go outside for recess for 40 minutes. Starting next week, our lunch hour will contain two rotation of 30 minutes.
In order to accommodate this new schedule, it was necessary to split third grade. We recognize that lunch is a time when students are able to see friends from other classrooms and dividing third grade impacts that. To that end, we will have a rotating schedule for third grade throughout the year so all sections of third grade will have lunch together at different points in time.
If your child is passing Valentines cards out to other students, the cards cannot have any candy or food item attached to them. Trinkets such as pencils, erasers, stickers, etc., are fine as long as they are not edible.
Family Hour of Code
Just a reminder that we will be hosting our Family Night of Code on January 22, at 6:30pm. If you have already signed up to come we are looking forward to seeing you. If you would still like to sign up, you can do so by clicking here.
Upgrade to Online Food Service Payment System
Beginning January 21st, any deposit made to a student's lunch account by 10:00 am will be available for use on that same day. Payments after that time will be available the next day. This upgrade will not change how payments are made online. If you do not have an account you may sign up here to deposit money, monitor balances, and view purchases.
