Patterson Elementary

Parent Blast - January 24, 2022

ParentVue Check

As we prepare for sending report cards home, I want to encourage parents and families to log into ParentVue to verify your information (address, phone numbers, email, emergency contacts):

  • Log in to your account. If you need assistance with this piece, please email our office manager Ms. Melissa: gearharm@hsd.k12.or.us
  • Click on "online registration" in the upper right-hand corner and follow the prompts
  • If you have already verified your account, you can make changes using the "my account" button in the upper right-hand corner
  • Once finished verifying your contact information, use the tabs down the left-hand side to view your child's grades, health information, etc.
  • If you have not already sent a copy/picture of your child's vaccination card, please send it to our office team so we can record this information in our system. This helps speed up our contact tracing process, helps our office team, and keeps your child in class.


Booster Club News:

  • This Thursday students who won pizza lunch as a Panther Dash prize will receive their prize during their lunch period.
  • Auction Help Needed! We will be having an offsite auction this school year! We could use your help. If you’re interested in helping with our offsite auction or would like more information on what that would entail please email us at pattersonboosterclub@gmail.com


Here to serve,

Jamie Lentz

Principal, Patterson Elementary

As a parent/guardian, we encourage you to learn more about our K-12 Comprehensive Sexuality Plan and teaching materials. To make this as easy as possible, we have posted documents on our Comprehensive Sexuality Education Plan website that outline the standards, curricula, and instructional materials used at each grade-level. (Note: If/when materials cannot be posted online due to copyright restrictions, you may call the school and make an appointment to view them in person.) Remember, parents/guardians have the right to utilize our opt-out process if they wish to have their student(s) participate in alternate activities during sexual health instruction (Opt-Out Form).


If you have any questions/concerns about the health curriculum, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Food Pantry

At Patterson we have a small food pantry designed to help our families throughout the school year. If you would like to donate and/or are in need of some items, please reach out to our food pantry coordinator: Adriana Awad, awada@hsd.k12.or.us.

Attendance Line

Thank you to our families for calling students in sick on our attendance line and sharing symptoms. This has helped us to communicate with families regarding timelines for return and kept our building safe and healthy. If you have not done so already, we encourage you to save our attendance line number in your phone: 503.844.1385
