We are again asking that box tops for education be clipped and sent in to be redeemed for cash for the school. Our first deadline was November 01, 2016 and we had submissions from only one class.

****A reminder that the class in each grade that collects the most box tops by the next submission (March01) will earn a prize.**** We are aiming for $1000 for the school.

Please help out and send in your box tops with your advisor's name on the bag!

The box tops will then be sent to the office for collection.

Thank you.

The Patton Middle School's "Holiday Giving Tree"

November 28th through December 15th

"Tis better to GIVE than to receive" is our school theme for the season.

Always help those less fortunate, we need no other reason.

Please support Patton Middle School's annual December Community Service Project by donating new, unused, unwrapped gifts for people of all ages. Please feel free to bring your donation to the library when you visit for student-led conferences. This month the Patton Middle School is working hard to fill the "Giving Trees" located in our library. On Saturday, December 17th, hundreds of local families have been invited to participate in The Kennett Area Community Service's annual "Christmas Basket" charity event. School nurses, religious groups and other organizations that provide yearlong assistance to those less fortunate refer needy families for this event. Each family who participates will be given one box of dried goods, one box of perishable items including a ham or turkey, and will be able to choose gifts for their children. Our Patton Middle School family makes a difference for others in many ways. Through this activity and many others our students are learning the importance of helping those less fortunate all year long. All contributions are donated to The Kennett Area Community Service that provides temporary assistance for families in the Kennett, Unionville-Chadds Ford, and Avon Grove school districts who need food, clothing, lodging, heat or rent. Kennett Area Community Service 136 West Cedar Street Kennett Square, PA 19348 610-925-3556
