Dances & Mixers
During the school year, we have mixers after school for the 6th graders and evening dances for the 7th and 8th graders. Check our school communication channels for dates!
First Lego League
Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. for more information.
The Hawk's Nest is a welcoming, teacher-supervised learning environment where Patton students may: work with Unionville HS National Honor Society students in a peer tutoring session, collaborate with peers on group projects, organize and participate in peer study groups, and have a quiet place to complete work. Hawk’s Nest is open to all Patton students. See Mrs. Palic for more details.
HawkTV is a daily morning newscast, which is broadcast throughout the school. This entirely student-produced program is comprised of students working both on camera as presenters as well as behind the scenes in the production crew. See Mr. Walsh if you would like to join!
Please stop by the Counseling Office for a request form to schedule an assigned time or request a pass from your teacher to drop in for some help during your Hawk Time.
Student Council elections are held in September each school year. Offices for Student Council are President, Vice President, Treasurer, Parliamentarian, Communications Officer, and Secretary. Eighth graders may run for all offices, while seventh graders may run only for the offices of Vice President, Treasurer, Communications Officer & Secretary. Additionally, each grade level elects six team representatives. Team representatives will attend all Student Council meetings during the Friday club period. Student Council embodies the core principles of Leadership, Community Service, Student Voice and School Spirit.
