We are thrilled to share an extra special new spirit wear item designed by the Patton Student Council! The Hawks Fly Together Sweatshirt and t-shirt are available now on the Spirit Wear Store: https://charles-f-patton-middle-school-pto.square.site/

The students did an incredible job coming up with the idea, creating the design, and promoting it to their fellow students. The design commemorates the resilience they have shown during a unique and challenging year. All proceeds are invested back into the student body, and the student council is looking forward to planning some fun events.

Amazon Gift Card Raffle & Advisory Challenge
To support the students’ efforts with this special spirit wear item if you purchase this item, your name will be entered in a weekly Amazon Gift Card raffle (month of March). The top participating advisory in each grade will receive a free Patton mask. 

The 2021 Patriots Challenge is a Black History Month contest sponsored by the Valley Forge Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. for students in grades 6-8. The Patriots Challenge is a research contest that highlights the contributions made by patriots of African descent during the American Revolutionary War. Three students will be awarded a $150.00 prize for their entry. All entries must be received by Sunday, February 28, 2021.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a private, non-profit public service organization founded on January 13, 1913, at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The sorority has grown into an international organization of over 900 chapters throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, the Virgin Islands, Bermuda, and the Bahamas.

The Valley Forge Alumnae Chapter (VFAC) was chartered on February 10, 1991 and serves Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery Counties. Over twenty-five-years-ago, VFAC along with the National Park Service unveiled the Patriots of African Descent Monument located in Valley Forge National Historical Park. It is the first monument in a national park to honor Black patriots who served in the American Revolutionary War.

This recent video developed in December 2020 by the Valley Forge National Historical Park gives the history of the monument and tells how the sorority and the park service collaborated to establish the memorial. https://www.nps.gov/vafo/learn/historyculture/march-in-dst-video.htm

We hope that you will inform your students about the Patriots Challenge. If you have any questions or need more information about the contest, please contact Mandel J. Smith or M. Allyson Brown, MD, at patriots@dstvalleyforge.org .

Good Afternoon Students and Parents,

SHOC (Students Helping Other Classmates) is the Unionville High School student-led transition program for incoming 9th grade and transfer students. Many of you may have heard of SHOC or had older brothers and sisters participate in SHOC Day, which typically happens later in the spring.

This year’s SHOC Student Leadership team is going to offer two Q&A sessions next week to discuss high school scheduling with current 8th grade and 9th grade students. The course selection window for 2021 is now open, and the SHOC team is offering these sessions to give  students the opportunity to ask questions regarding courses at UHS. This will be a staff supervised, but student-run event. SHOC is anticipating that these sessions will help students to have a better understanding of the daily schedule, anticipated workload, time management, and student life at the high school. There may be questions that we are unable to answer and students will be directed to the appropriate adult for follow up. 

We would like to encourage you to submit your schedule questions ahead of time. Use this link to submit a question ahead of time.  

There are two sessions scheduled, but students only need to register for one session. The sessions will begin at 2 PM and run until 3 PM. These are student-only sessions, but at least one of them will be recorded and made available for students who are unable to attend each day. 

Session #1- Monday, February 22, from 2PM- 3PM
Registration for Monday Session: Monday Scheduling Q&A

Session #2- Tuesday, February, from 2PM- 3PM
Registration for Tuesday Session: Tuesday Scheduling Q&A

Please remember that course selection requests need to be complete by Friday, February 26 on Powerschool. 

Please contact Pat Clark, UHS Dean of Students at pclark@ucfsd.net with any questions.
