Good Evening Patton Families,
I don't know about you, but I'm still finding it difficult to believe that school is beginning on Monday. The staff has been busy spending the last three days preparing for the arrival of your children, and I trust that they will have a wonderful first day of school!
Patton Elementary School is moving toward healthy snacks for students, particularly fruits and vegetables in their own skin. We want to promote health and wellness within our school in addition to providing a safe environment for all of our students. Additionally, food allergies are on the rise with our children, not just at Patton but nationwide. The national average for children impacted by allergies is approximately 8%. We want our school to be a safe place for all to learn.
RAPTOR VISITOR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Please see the letter below from Dr. Bein regarding the new visitor management system that will be used at all schools.
KINDERGARTEN PARENT WELCOME
The PTA is sponsoring a parent welcome gathering in the LMC for AM and PM kindergarten families. The AM gathering is from 9:05 to 10:05, and the PM gathering is from 12:55 to 1:55.
At the bottom of this post is the PTA welcome back letter that was published a few weeks ago. The second page of the the letter highlights the drop off and pick up procedures. If you have not joined the PTA, I would encourage you to consider it. Patton is blessed with a wonderful PTA and they are always looking for additional help.
We are very much looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday. Have a fantastic weekend!
Principal, Patton Elementary School
