Happy March!

Wow! What a winter! It has been nice to be back in a regular routine with the staff and students all back at school on a consistent basis. I sure hope we are done with snow!


I am working on increasing our communication with families and the community to spread the great things that are happening daily at Vern Patrick. I have started a twitter and Instagram account for our school. For information and positive updates follow : @principalhesse.


I want to say a huge thank you to Justin Merth and Mike Hesse for taking the lead with our All Pro Dad’s Breakfasts. These two dads have stepped up to take over and lead each month with breakfast and a great message. Remember, these always take place on the last Wednesday of each month.

Calling All Moms/Maternal Figures:

We are hoping to create a monthly or every other month event for the female figures in our Vern Patrick kid’s lives. We are looking for a few volunteers to help organize this. Please contact the office if you are interested.

Spring Break:

Don’t forget that spring break is the last week of the month, please take this time to enjoy each other as a family, get outside, and spend a little time on iReady or reading!

Looking forward to a fabulous spring,

Mrs. Hesse
