Patterson Night at Holly McDonalds

Tuesday May 24th from 4-7 Holly McDonalds will donate 15% of all proceeds to Patterson's playground project. How fun would it be for our students and families to see staff and TEAM Patterson members helping out? Give it some thought and we will have a sign up sheet to cover the times that we need you.

Library News:

Some of our new library books are not scanning due to having the wrong number on the bar code. When you come across one of these books please put it aside so I can put a new label on. Also, please do a spot check of the library before leaving with your class. Our library volunteer is finding whole sections of books on the floor. Even thought she appreciates our students lending a hand she would like us to leave the re-shelving of books for her to do.
