Patterson Elementary

Parent Blast - April 25, 2022

Staff Appreciation & Volunteer Appreciation

Next week is staff appreciation week and I would encourage you and/or your child to use this opportunity to thank the educators at Patterson that you are grateful for. Think about staff that have had a positive impact on your child. From the classroom to reading group, recess to the lunchroom, specialist and support staff, we are fortunate to have such a caring, hard-working and experienced team of educators!

You can use this link to view our staff list with emails or have your kiddos write a note or verbalize their appreciation. Please email Mrs. Lentz if you need someone not listed. Our Booster Club also has a sign-up linked below for another fun way to spoil our team.

We will be celebrating all of our wonderful volunteers on Wednesday, May 11th. We recognize that it has been challenging to volunteer during the pandemic and we are truly grateful for every support and act of service in support of our school and community. We will have a small token of our appreciation ready for each volunteer throughout the day, at dismissal/pick-up and at our Booster Club meeting that evening. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Here to serve,

Jamie Lentz

Principal, Patterson Elementary
