2014-15 Traffic Team Committee
The PTA Volunteer Traffic Team is looking for volunteers. This is a vital piece of the Patton PTA program set, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are available for this important position. It's a great way to get even more involved with your children’s school!
PTA Directory Updates
The Patton PTA Student Directory is compiled by directly using data entered by Patton families during registration. If you know that any of your contact information has changed over the summer, please contact Bob Corley at email@example.com so it may be updated.
Yearbook Classroom Volunteers Needed
Every year we like to have one volunteer per classroom to ensure pictures of every class are included in the yearbook. In addition, this person is responsible for getting one full class picture by early February. If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, everyone is always encouraged to send their school-related pictures to this same email throughout the year. The more pictures we have, the better the yearbook!
PTA Membership Cards and Calendars
If you joined the PTA this year your child should have received your school calendar and membership card(s) this week. If you did not receive them or have questions please contact Melissa Mier at email@example.com or 773-835-0167.

During the Back to School Bash Friday, Sept. 5th, the PTA will be holding a raffle for four front row seats for each grade level's musical performance this year. Tickets can be purchased for $3 each or 4 for $10. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the Back to School Bash!
