Patton Parent Update
November 20 - November 24
Welcome to the second semester! I hope everyone had an enjoyable break. We started this week with reviewing building-wide expectations, the student handbook, and code of conduct. These documents are linked below. It may be a great time to review these documents with your student at home.
We will be having student-led conferences on Friday, January 26. On this day, conferences will run from 8:00-3:30, and there will be no school for students. However, since these conferences are student-led, please bring your Patton student with you so they can lead the discussion about their academic progress. I am attaching directions on how to schedule conferences using Skyward Family Access. Sixth-grade students will conference with their homeroom teacher. Seventh- through ninth-grade students will conference with their Period 9 (Advisory) teacher. If you would like to conference with a teacher that is not your student’s homeroom or Advisory teacher, please email that teacher directly to set up a time to meet. These conferences will be held in individual teacher classrooms. Please check in through the office and check in when you arrive. If you are not signed up for a specific time with a teacher, the office staff will assist you in finding an open time. Teachers will take a lunch break from 11:30-12:00. If you have any questions, please let us know.
With Patton Pride,
Dr. Tyler Fowler

Patton Athletic/Activities Update for the Week
Below are the schedules for the upcoming 7th and 8th grade boys basketball season. These schedules are subject to change. I am looking to add more games if possible for both grade levels. There are a few changes to the 8th grade schedule.
Have a great weekend!
