There is nothing more important than the safety of our children!

PLEASE follow our parking lot rules!

  • Be Patient
  • Drive very slowly
  • Always escort children in the parking lot!
  • Do not ever leave your vehicle unattended while running or at the curbside
  • Do not park in the south parking lot or cut through the south parking lot. This applies to everyone!

Label It!

It is extremely helpful if your child’s name or initials are written inside of their winter clothing. Many boys/girls have the same items and the only way to identify the owner is with a name.

Looking For Something?

Maybe it is in our lost and found. Patterson's lost and found bins are overflowing with unclaimed items. Stop in and check it out next time you are in the building or ask you child to take a look.


The playground donation deadline is now March 31st. Make donations out to TEAM Patterson. Return to your teacher or the office. Thank you!
