New First Graders

Do you have a student that has been enrolled in private kindergarten, but you are planning on having them attend Patterson for 1st grade?  Please stop by the office and fill out registration paperwork. It is so helpful if we know sooner than later if your child will be joining us.  Thank you!

Kinder Registration
Kindergarten registration is now open!  For the 2015-16 school year, kindergarten is full day, five days a week.  If you live in our attendance area, please stop by to pick up a registration packet.  It is so helpful to have those turned in sooner than later to make sure our class numbers are balanced.  Our office will be open through June 19th, please contact us if you have any questions.

Principal's Corner

Dear Patterson Families,

We are down to just the last few weeks of school!  Can you believe how fast the year has gone by?  Report cards will be mailed home after school gets out for Quarter 4.  This year has been a wonderful first year for me as the principal of Patterson!  It has been an honor to help your students grow and learn and I look forward to next year!  Have a fantastic summer!

A few important date reminders: June 10th is NOT an early release day, students will go home at our regular time of 2:05pm.  Our field day is on the calendar for June 11th and Mr. Twigg always needs volunteers.  Please contact him if you would like to help out.  The last day of school is June 12th and it is an early release day.

The Patterson parent memo has been going all year.  It is sent every other Monday via email.  If you would like to receive the memo, please contact Ms. Barkley-Gaston in the office  at 503-844-1380 and she will get you added to the list.
