Hello Patton Community,
This has been a truly amazing first week back from school filled with excitement, anticipation, and a little bit of rain. Students have been engaged in a variety of activities, and we are off to a great start of a new school year. Below you will find some information about upcoming events and some of the things that are happening at Patton. Each week I'll try to give you a window into what is happening at school.
We had a back to school assembly where we reviewed "The Patton Way" and the students sang the school song. It was so touching and inspiring to hear them.
CURRICULUM NIGHT - WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2014 - 6:30 - 8:30pm
We are looking forward to having you join us for Curriculum Night. Similar to past years, we are staggering the times that you can visit the various classrooms in the building. This will allow for less congestion throughout the hallways and make it easier for parents to visit more than one classroom if they have more than one child at Patton.
RAPTOR VISITOR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
When visitors and volunteers enter the building, they will need to present a government ID to have it scanned into the Raptor System. IDs only need to be scanned one time as the data is stored in the system. According to Raptor, "Raptor will check the database every single time someone comes to the school, even if they are return visitors. Our offender database is updated on a weekly basis, so if they visited before and were not an offender, then became an offender and tried to enter one of your campuses you will be notified." Thank you to everyone for being patient through this process.
TRAFFIC & CROSSING THE STREET
Please remind your children to stay behind the yellow lines and to wait for the direction of the crossing guards. Additionally, if you are picking up your child, please remember to refrain from using your cell phone in the school zones, and please be aware of the areas along the street where you are not allowed to park your car. (We just don't want anyone getting any tickets!)
BREAKFAST IS SERVED
Breakfast is available to through food services beginning at 8:35am for those interested in purchasing breakfast.

TWEETS OF THE WEEK
It has truly been a pleasure getting to know your children this week. It has been a joy to watch kindergartners navigate through the school, 2nd graders creating videos, 4th graders making info-graphics about themselves, QR Code scavenger hunts in the LMC, and so many more wonderful activities. I hope you have a restful three day weekend, and I look forward to seeing everyone at Curriculum Night and the Back to School Bash!
