A Note From The Principal

Hello Patterson Families!

Please join Patterson, Bozman, and Stockton on October 25th at 6:00 pm for a Bond Information Night at Stockton Jr. High. Information flier is below.

This is Red Ribbon Week! We will have daily themed dress-up days and invite our students to join in too! We will end the week, October 27th, with a Storybook Character parade. We will parade around the staff parking lot (weather pending) at 9:00 AM. Parents, please park in the staff lot for this event. There will not be a visitor sign-in since the event is outdoors.

Save the Date: The Patterson Fall Festival is November 10th from 5-7 pm. There will be games, bounce houses, food, raffles, and a silent auction! This is a family event for all! Join us!

Daily library notifications are being emailed from the district. The emails are just a notification of what your child is checking out from the library. It is not about overdue books. If you'd like to turn off the daily email notifications, please click on the links shared in the CISD Automated Library Notifications found in this week's Patterson Pages.

Please help keep everyone safe by staying in the car rider line if you are bringing your child to school in the morning. Buses unload in the front of our school and walking through the bus zone is not safe.

Our school hours are 8:00 a.m. to 3:10 p.m., however our doors are open to students at 7:15 each morning. Breakfast is from 7:15 to 7:55 and students are considered tardy at 8:00 a.m.

Please follow Patterson Elementary and Patterson PTO on Facebook for updates, reminders, pictures, and campus happenings.

I am honored to serve the Puma community. At Patterson Elementary, it is our goal to create a safe, caring, and positive learning experience for all children. I will nurture a school community where parents, teachers, staff, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social/emotional growth. I look forward to working together to provide an outstanding learning experience for every Patterson Puma!

We are Patterson Pumas and we have PRIDE!

Melissa Ralston,

News from the Nurse

Just a few reminders from the clinic:

Any medications whether over-the-counter or prescription, must be brought to the clinic by a parent or guardian in the original labeled container and be FDA approved. The students can not transport any medication. This is for your child’s safety.

Please be sure to notify the school of any phone number changes. We need the most current numbers in case your child needs to be picked up or there is an emergency situation. Keep your child at home if they demonstrate any of the following:

1.Fever of 100 degrees or more

2.Suspected contagious disease

3.Vomiting or Diarrhea

4.Severe stomachache, headache or earache

5.A child who is too ill to function in the classroom

Our goal is to keep your children safe, healthy and learning in the classroom. I hope this year will be full of great experiences for you and your child. I am excited to share in the journey!

Eat Breakfast at School!

Breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast has vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body. If you qualify for free and reduced price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork. You can’t find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else. Help your child start the day right with school breakfast!

Desayuno en la Escuela

¡Los niños pueden desayunar en la escuela! Sus niños pueden comenzar el día saludablemente al comer el desayuno en la escuela. Un desayuno saludable ayuda a los estudiantes estar más alertos, y así aprender más. El desayuno tiene vitaminas y nutrientes para un cuerpo fuerte. Si ya calificas para comidas gratis o comidas a precio reducido, también calificas para el Programa de Desayunos Escolares, y no tienes que llenar más formularios. ¡Ayuda a tu niño a comenzar el día bien con desayunos escolares!

Prioritizing Safety
