Preparing For School to Start
Today our teachers launched into inservice week and they are working extremely hard preparing systems, structures and instruction for Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). We are recreating school and I am so thankful for the amazing Patterson staff - our students are in great hands! We have some important dates to share with you as we plan for the start of school:
Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, September 1st, staff will be calling to let you know who your child's teacher will be this school year and to set up your welcome back conference. Welcome back conferences will take place next week during our "soft start" and allow your child, the teacher, you and any caregivers to connect. During this time you can expect to be asked if you have any questions about the schedule and we would like to spend a few minutes getting to know your child. These conferences will take approximately 20 minutes each. If you have any concerns or need any support please let your teacher know and our team will reach out to support you as a follow up to these meetings.
Next week we will be hosting supply pick-ups and drop-offs by grade level to ensure your child has the material they need for our new online environment. If you have multiple children at Patterson, you can choose to come to the latest date/time and pick up all items together if it is more convenient for you. Any items that are not picked up will be delivered as soon as possible.

School Supply List
Due to the fact that we are beginning the school year in Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) and supplies may be more challenging to secure, our school supply list has been condensed into one list for K-6. Any other supplies and/or materials needed will be ready for pick-up/delivery prior to the first day of school and will be provided by our school and community partners. We will provide any of these items you are unable to purchase or secure.

2 -3 Regular Composition Notebooks/Spiral Notebooks
1 Graphing Composition Notebook (Grades 3 – 6)
1 Box Crayons

Students will also need a computer/Chromebook for Comprehensive Distance Learning which we will provide if needed.
