Patriot Week at a Glance
October 26-November 1
TODAY - MONDAY
A Note from our Counselor:
Hello! My name is, Alicia Klinker, and I am the counselor at Patriot. I am collecting some information on what groups would be beneficial for your students to participate in throughout the year and ask that you please fill out the form below. Please only select two groups total in case your first choice is full. If you have more than one student enrolled, please fill out a separate one for each.
Groups run 6-8 weeks with one session a week and will rotate throughout the year. Groups will be much smaller this year due to COVID so if you do not feel they need to participate, please do not fill out the group portion.
Thank you so much and please feel free to contact me with additional questions or concerns!
