Wishing You a Wonderful Winter Break

Today we kicked off spirit week with hat day and it was fun to see what our students came to live lesson with on their heads! We have four more days to participate and encourage families to post photos on our social media platforms as an added layer of fun. This year has been a challenging one to say the least, and it has reminded me how grateful I am to be a part of the Patterson community. Thank you for your continued partnership with us to help our students learn and grow regardless of the circumstances. I wish you all a wonderful winter break that is restful and fulfilling. Whether or not your family celebrates this time of year, I hope you get to make lasting family memories.
