Patton Parent Update
August 28-September 1, 2023
Thank you for another great week at Patton Junior High. It was wonderful to see so many of you at Parent/Teacher Conferences today.
We have our annual Freedom Walk coming up on September 8 at the USD 207 Track and Field complex. There will be more information coming out next week regarding this event. Following this event we will host a picnic lunch. It is a great opportunity to come have lunch with your students if you are able. This is a wonderful event that we look forward to every year.
Students are allowed to have snacks at school. Please make sure the items that are brought to school are smaller "snack-sized". We do allow students to have water bottles at school, however, cans of energy drinks, soda, etc., are not allowed in classrooms. Please help remind your students of this expectation.
With Patton Pride,
Dr. Tyler Fowler
On our district and each school's website, under the "Parents" tab there is a great deal of national, state, and local information including immediate support in Kansas, Risk Factors and Warning Signs, and Suicide Prevention and Awareness Resources. Following is the direct link:
