Live, Laugh, Learn, Leave a Legacy

Dear Patterson Pride,

The holiday season is the perfect time to acknowledge the things that make us feel thankful and grateful. I am so proud to be part of the PRIDE community as you have such big hearts.

I want to share a special thank you to our 6th graders for serving at Feed My Starving Children and our 5th graders who are currently coordinating our Patterson Giving Tree in order to donate toys to the Chandler CARE Center. The spirit of kindness and “Paying it Forward” is in our Patterson culture.

We are grateful for our Patterson Pride community for supporting our teachers, and most importantly, our children. Patterson is a better school because of you! On behalf of the Patterson staff, I wish you a festive, joyful and fun holiday season. Spend time with friends and family and enjoy the moments that matter most.

We look forward to the New Year and watching your children continue to grow.


Sarah Stephens

Patterson PRIDE Principal


Our lost and found is overflowing. We have more than 60 jackets and 35 water bottles without names on them. Please remind your child to check for their belongings. On December 17th all items left will be donated to charity.


At times, families may want to celebrate by providing treats for their child's classroom. Please remember that food treats must be store bought and individually packaged by the manufacturer (example: Hostess/Little Debbie). Donuts, cupcakes and any treat that is not individually wrapped will not be allowed. We also encourage families to share items such as pencils, erasers, or other small treats in lieu of food.

Thank you families for your generosity and commitment to health and safety.
