This year Patton Middle School will be offering a parent book club using the book The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey. The book club is designed to be a casual opportunity to engage as parents in a judgement free zone. Laboure Rafferty, Patton’s school librarian/media specialist, will facilitate the meetings. Please consider this opportunity to hear others thoughts on parenting in the 21st century. No one has all of the answers, but together we can share thoughts, ideas, and opinions about our most important responsibility. Books are available from a variety of book providers, including Amazon (Link to The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey). Chester county library also has multiple copies of the book Link to The Gift of Failure via Chester County Library. We will meet in Patton Middle School’s Library three times throughout the year on the following dates:

Hey Patton 7th & 8th graders!!

We encourage you to take part in our 5th annual Heritage Day to showcase the native country of your family and to celebrate the different cultural heritages we have here at Patton!

All 7th and 8th grade students have the opportunity to create an exhibit to showcase their heritage. The showcase can include: pictures, flags, cultural symbols, music, clothing, and more. The 6th grade students will have the opportunity to experience these cultures as they go through the day. It is a great day for all!

We invite the 7th and 8th graders to volunteer to serve your school community by telling your story, your history, and your heritage! If you are interested, please go to the counseling center and sign up to learn more.
