Notes from the Principal

Dear Parents,

As we approach the beginning of February, we are glad to see everyone getting back to their school routines. So far, we have been fortunate as the weather has been pretty mild! It is still winter, so remember to pack gloves, a hat, and snow pants for recess as the temperatures allow.

The instructional staff at Patterson have been hard at work completing and analyzing data from the winter assessments. The results have been positive, and I am very proud of the amount of progress that our students have shown. Iready parent reports are being sent home. Let me know if you have any questions.

Please take a look at the newsletter as there are activities for HAS students and families coming up, be sure to review the details below:
