The 3rd and 4th grade students, along with Mrs. Shepherd’s students have been
working hard on researching famous Michiganders. They have been
rehearsing their presentation and Michigan songs during Music Class. They
will be sharing their “MICHIGAN WAX MUSEUM” performance on
THURSDAY, MAY 5 from 2:00-3:15 P.M. in the cafeteria. Each of the
students will have a chair set up around the perimeter of the cafeteria. This
will be their “booth”. As different classes and parents arrive, the guests will
walk around and visit the different “booths” to hear about the famous people
from Michigan. Approximately every 10 minutes or so, we will stop and have
a ‘flash singing’ of one of our Michigan songs. Guests are not expected to stay
for the entire 1hour -15minutes and may come and go as their schedule
permits. It should be a fun and interesting afternoon for all. We hope you can
attend and have the opportunity to learn a little more about our famous

Art Exhibit and Empty Bowl Event
Our Empty Bowls Event raised $2,567.35 for Blessings in a Backpack-Holly. The art educators want to thank our supporters for providing delicious treats--Bittersweet Cafe, Crust, Cupcakes and Kisses, Holly Donut Shop, Kroger of Clarkson, Subway of Holly and the parents and staff of our elementary schools.
We are also grateful for our talented students who created the handmade bowls and students who volunteered by setting up, hosting, painting faces, and playing the ukulele.
Finally, we appreciate the students, parents, community and staff who generously donated to the Empty Bowls event and ultimately, Blessings in a Backpack.
Are you planning to chaperone a trip?
Patterson Night at Holly McDonalds
15% of ALL proceeds go to TEAM Patterson for the new playground structure.
Dine in or Drive through and you will see Patterson staff and parents helping out.
TEAM Patterson will also be selling McDonalds fresh, warm cookies 3 for1$. 100% of those proceeds will go towards to playground.
We have raised $41,000 and need $9,000 more so we need your support to reach our goal.
At our last meeting the committee decided to go with Miracle Recreation Equipment for the NEW PLAYGROUND at Patterson Elementary. It will take a couple weeks for the company to draw some plans as we are making design changes. The NEW PLAYGROUND will be something similar to the Mega Tower at the bottom of page 57 see link for picture http://www.miracle-recreation.com/zmag/2016-miracle-product-catalog/. Once we agree on the design and color of the NEW PLAYGROUND it will be ordered no later than the first of July. We are planning to have a three day build near the end of August. Volunteers will be needed.
Here is a list of items still in need for the build hence the reason we are fundraising to 50K see GoFundMehttps://www.gofundme.com/kd7j9rpc to donate. If you have a contact interested in donating equipment, cement or wood chips please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The NEW PLAYGROUND will be ready for the 2016 – 2017 school year. Once again THANK YOU for all the support!!
