Patterson Welcomes New Principal Audrea Neville

Former principal Jonathan Pahukula has accepted the job as principal of the Kamehameha Schools in Maui. Taking over as principal of Patterson will be Audrea Neville, formerly the assistant principal at Poynter Middle School.  Mrs. Neville began her educational career teaching 8th grade math at Poynter Middle School in 2000.  Next, she spent a year as a teacher on special assignment (TOSA) for the School Improvement team assisting and supporting assistant principals and teachers with their implementation of Effective Teaching Strategies. In 2007, she joined the Brown leadership team as dean of students, and then took over the assistant principal position in 2010 when Mr. Pahukula moved to Patterson as principal.  Mrs. Neville’s return to Poynter as an administrator took place last year. An inclusive and collaborative leader, Mrs. Neville will support staff, students and families in ensuring the best for Patterson.

Dear Patterson Families,

The last few days of summer are here and I hope that you all have had a wonderful summer.  These next few weeks are going to be very busy for everyone.  The first big event coming up for grades 1 – 6 is our Meet Your Teacher & Supply on August 27th.  Kindergarten families, you will have your own special orientation & supply delivery time and details will be coming home in a letter with your time to attend.  We are looking forward to seeing students back in the building after a long, quiet summer.  

The Patterson parent memo will be starting up again this year.  It will be sent every other Monday via email.  Email addresses are gathered via student registration paperwork so if your email has changed, please be sure to let the office know. 

Enjoy your last few days of summer!

Sincerely,            

Audrea Neville, Principal
