Notes from the Principal

Dear Parents,

I wanted to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year! Please enjoy the next few weeks spending time with your friends and families. This is a special time of year that provides lifelong memories for many of us. I have encouraged all of the Patterson staff to do the same as well.

I also want to thank all of you that participated in the Food For Families drive. This drive was a huge success. This year’s collection total was 2554 items. This is an amazing achievement, and I am very proud of our students for taking the time to put others first. Many needy families will have a better holiday because of this generous donation. The food has already been collected and on its way to people that need it most.

We look forward to seeing all of you in the New Year!

Yours in Education,

Jake Haynes
