Patterson Panthers Update Feb. 12

Work hard, be kind and amazing things will happen!

Principal's Message

Hello Panthers,

We are quickly approaching the 3rd and final trimester. Time is flying by! February is a short month but packed with so many things! This month, your children will likely be learning about noteable Black Americans during Black History Month, kindness and friendship around Valentine's day, Presidents now and from our past and so much more! We are also entering the testing season. We are already starting to test our Multi Lingual Learners with the ELPAC test and will begin testing 3-6th graders with the SBAC test in the next few months.

A big THANK YOU to all of our hardworking parent, student and teacher leaders on campus! We have had Spelling Bee, Happy Birds, Student Council action on menu reform, Science Fair, Community Service Club pet drive, Dance offs and Field Trips! Our campus leaders are making each and everyday extra special for our entire community!

Wishing you wonderful final weeks of February!


Kristin Dil

Dear families,

The school sites in the American attendance area have been informed by the District that they are moving forward with the planned middle school transition for the 2023-2024 school year. This year’s 5th grade students will be moving to Thornton Middle School for 6th grade. More information will be shared later with families as it becomes available.

Enrollment 23/24 School Year

Please watch for a “FALL 2023-2024 Reservation/Registration Form” to be mailed home soon for each student currently enrolled in TK – 6 th grades. The form will not be handed out to parents and serves 2 purposes: it reserves a spot for your child next year at Patterson and also fulfills the District’s mandated annual residency verification via USPS. Please don’t mistake the letter for junk mail and toss it out!

For students who will be moving on to Middle School next year, Patterson will collect the form and proofs and communicate with the Thornton Middle School to confirm a space will be reserved for next year. By submitting the required form and Residency Proofs by February 24th, your child will be reserved a space for next year.

*The forms must be returned to the school that your student currently is attending; if you have a student overloaded to another elementary school, please return it there.

Thank you Parent Volunteers & Mrs. Bar-Dagan & Ms. Beccaria for an Amazing Science Fair 2023!

District's School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs)

"Federal and state laws require school districts to make accountability reports available to the public online. Accountability report information is based on data and information from the previous year. Dates will run one year behind.

We are pleased to inform you that our district's School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs) are available in English, Spanish, and/or Chinese, as required. You may view the SARCs on the Fremont Unified School District web site at under Resources & Contacts/Reports, or by visiting your school office. You may also obtain a hard copy at your school office.
