Patterson Elementary

Parent Blast - November 17, 2020

Thank You!

Thank you to all our families for joining us last week for conferences. I have heard wonderful things about the partnerships between staff, parents and our kiddos and it warms my heart. Please continue to reach out during daily office hours to keep the communication going. This week is a full week and then next week we have Thursday off for the Thanksgiving holiday and Friday off as well. School supply drive-throughs are continuing - reach out to the office if you can't make your child's designated time so we can connect and get them what they need.


I would also like to ask your help in encouraging your children to participate and engage in their live sessions. It can be difficult to find out what students need and what they know when they don't turn on their cameras, answer questions, or engage in class discussions. Please encourage your children to show us their awesome faces each day!


Important Dates:

  • 11/18: Kinder Supply Drive-through, 5-6:30 pm
  • 11/19: 3rd Grade Supply Drive-through, 4-5:30 pm
  • 11/26-27: No School, Thanksgiving


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out: lentzj@hsd.k12.or.us.


Here to serve,

Jamie Lentz

Principal, Patterson Elementary

Parent Support - Office Hour

Starting this Friday, Mrs. Cary our Student Success Coach, will be hosting WEEKLY drop-in office hours for Caregivers at 1pm. This is a good place for parents/caregivers who may have questions about parenting through distance learning, mental health or behavior concerns, or those just wanting more guidance and reassurance about how to meet their children's needs during these difficult times, to bring questions and get ideas.

Math Tournament & Special Guest

This week our sixth grade leaders are continuing the math tournament and students can start submitting answers for round 3 on Thursday. They are also challenging students to do kindness acts and submit them via a google form so they can give them a live "shout out." Morning announcements are posted on our Facebook page, Twitter, and school website daily.

Attendance Reminders

Attendance in CDL has meant quite a few shifts from our former practice, however our process for calling the attendance line when your child is sick remains the same. If your child does not or will not attend any synchronous (live) or asynchronous (google classroom) on a school day, please call our attendance line at: 503-844-1385. This ensures your child's attendance is reported accurately.

K-3 Parent Survey

Thank you to families that completed our K-3 return to school survey. If you did not complete it, we will be reaching out to find out what your plan is, should we have an opportunity to return to school.

Food Pantry

Our food pantry continues to be available to serve our families in need. Please reach out to Mrs. Awad if you need assistance: awada@hsd.k12.or.us.

Campuses Still Closed

Currently our campuses are still closed to the public. New district signs have been placed to replace previous ones.
