Hello Patton Community,
I hope everyone is enjoying what appears to be a warm up in our weather. What a pleasant surprise it was to look at the upcoming forecast and see 50's being projected! I for one am definitely looking forward to a warm up in the weather. Below are your updates. I hope you have an enjoyable weekend!
We had a successful week of PARCC testing this week. The students did a great job and really put forth their best effort. The PARCC assessment does come in two different phases. The next phase is the End of Year (EOY) assessment which will be administered in late April/early May. We will provide more information as we get closer, but if you want to learn more about the assessments you can find information on PARCC's website at http://www.parcconline.org/for-parents.
Personalized learning activities have been happening throughout some of our intermediate classes. Different classrooms are at different stages of their personalized learning projects, but it is so neat to see what different students are passionate about.
MISSING A GLOVE...HAT...PILLOW?!
Patton's lost and found bin is overflowing! Please have your child stop
by the tables we have set up near the office. Feel free to take a peek
yourself if you are in the area. Items not claimed by spring break will
be donated. And yes, there really is a pillow.
