Patton News & Announcements
If you were unable to attend Wednesday night's 5th grade Parents Night, you may view Mr. Dissinger's presentation right here.
The Patton Carnival on Friday, May 4th is the main source of funding for the PTO providing teacher grants, technology purchases, assemblies, and other educational enrichment for all middle school students. This is also a favorite event that students in the district look forward to all year long!
Please help to make this a great event for our Patton family and the kids of the district by volunteering a few hours of your time. We are introducing many new games and we REALLY need your help!
Please enter your name in the slot(s) you'd like to volunteer for (volunteering for more than one slot really helps). Please be sure to check in at the "Volunteer Check In Booth" upon arrival to get your volunteer information and ID. Thank you!
This year the Patton Carnival is Friday, May 4. The Carnival is the PTO’s main fundraiser each year. The basket raffle is a mainstay, one of the true favorites. THANK YOU for again supporting this initiative! Last year the basket raffle helped to raise over $8,000! Ask your child what his or her Advisory basket theme is - raffle baskets are due to Mrs Rafferty by April 23. Thanks!
As you and your child prepare for promotion from elementary school to middle school, the Charles F. Patton Middle School Special Education Department would like to welcome you by providing an opportunity to meet with us and ask questions. We will be hosting a Rising 6th Graders Meet and Greet on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 6:00 pm in the Patton Library immediately preceding the 6th Grade Curriculum Night. Representatives from the Middle School’s special education teaching staff will answer questions about the differences between elementary school and middle school support programs, course selection, and other relevant topics in an attempt to ease the transition process for your student.
We look forward to meeting you!
