Parent Blast - November 8, 2021

Fitness Photos, Champions & T-Shirt Orders

Mr. Twigg is looking for photos of your kids! Please review the picture below and reach out to Mr. Twigg to participate: twiggn@hsd.k12.or.us. He has extended the deadline to the end of this month.


Champions, the afterschool care program at Patterson, is now up and running. They will be open on some non-school days and you may be able to access this care for your child. Please review the flyer here and reach out to them directly for more information.


Our Booster Club is currently taking orders for school t-shirts and sweatshirts. Please take a look at the flyer here if you're interested. Orders are due November 19th.


No School Thursday and Friday

This year we have moved some of our regular November no school days so that they are paired/grouped for better for instruction. Instead of a day or two off nearly every week, we will have Thursday and Friday off for Veteran's day and a teacher workday. Conferences, conference prep and professional development have all been placed the week of Thanksgiving.


Conference Sign-Up

This year our fall conferences will take place November 22nd in the evening and all day November 23rd. These conferences will be virtual, utilizing the Google Meet platform. Please use this link to sign up for a conference if you haven't already.


Picture Re-Take Day

Our picture re-take day is scheduled for December 3rd. If your child missed picture day, you can plan to take pictures that day.


Volunteers and Visitors

We continue to be on pause as our district works through the staff piece of the vaccination mandate. We are hoping to be able to bring volunteers back into the building in mid-November.


Here to serve,

Jamie Lentz

Principal, Patterson Elementary

Food Pantry

At Patterson we have a small food pantry designed to help our families throughout the school year. If you would like to donate and/or are in need of some items, please reach out to our food pantry coordinator: Adriana Awad, awada@hsd.k12.or.us.

Attendance Line

Thank you to our families for calling students in sick on our attendance line and sharing symptoms. This has helped us to communicate with families regarding timelines for return and kept our building safe and healthy. If you have not done so already, we encourage you to save our attendance line number in your phone: 503.844.1385
