Good Morning Patterson Lions!
Just a few quick announcements for this week...
Halloween & Parade
Students are encouraged to come in their costumes and wear them all day. Please no masks, blood or weapons. We will be having a Halloween Parade at 11:10am. All students will participate in the parade. We hope parents will be able to join us!
Make Up Picture Day
Our make up picture day is Tuesday, October 30th. Only students who need to have their pictures taken will have that opportunity. So if your child needs a picture retake, please let their teacher know.
We will have a PTA Board Meeting on Tuesday, October 30th at 4:30pm in the library. If you are interested in learning more about PTA and how you can help out our Patterson students, please come!
Attendance Challenge Starts
Beginning November 1st for the entire month of November, we will be having an attendance challenge with the rest of the district. Students will receive prizes every day that they are at school! Grand prize will be silly stringing the principal. Classes also have the chance to earn pizza parties, popcorn parties and ice cream parties! Let's do this, Patterson! Let's raise attendance! Our goal is 96.5% and I know we can do it!
PTA Movie Night
Our PTA is putting on a movie night on Friday, November 2nd from 5:45pm-8pm. We will be showing Boss Baby. Bring your blankets, pjs and family! Food will be for sale. It's sure to be a good time for our students and families!
As a reminder we will have parent-teacher conferences for two weeks, November 5th-November 16th. EVERY DAY is a minimum day with dismissal at 1:30pm for grades 1st-5th (TK and K will be out at 12:30pm). Please be on time to pick up your child. We cannot hold on to students in the office to wait for your conference. Your child's teacher will reach out to you for a conference. If you have questions about conferences please reach out to your child's teacher.
Drop Off Time
Just as a reminder, students cannot be on campus without parent supervision until after 8am. We do not provide supervision until 8am. Thank you for your cooperation as this is imperative to keep our students safe!
Our attendance rate has dropped recently. I know that if we are in this together, we can get our attendance rate back up! Remember, our goal is 96.5%.
Breakdown by grade:
Please send your children to school on time every day. Our students miss out on important lessons and instruction when they are not in school. Help us help your child succeed by sending them to school every day. Success starts by showing up!
We hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for a new week! Go Lions!
