IT'S TIME FOR RAFFLE BASKETS!!!

 

This year the Patton Carnival is Friday, May 5.  The Carnival is the PTO's main fundraiser each year.  The Basket Raffle is a mainstay, one of the true favorites at the carnival!  Last year the basket raffle helped to raise over $9,500 for use in events at Patton, Enrichment Projects, teacher subsidies and much more.  

Each 6th and 7th grade Prime Time selects a theme for their basket.  Students then donate a NEW item or monetary contribution to fill their Basket.  Most 8th grade Prime Times collect money and then purchase large items such as ipads, TV's, Laptops, Trips, etc.  Click here to find out what your child's advisory theme is.

SECOND ANNUAL WRITERS DAY 5/1

WRITERS NEEDED

Writers Day is a Writing Conference for kids. Students choose which workshop sessions they would like to attend. This year, our keynote speaker is MG/YA author Gary Schmidt (The Wednesday Wars, Okay for Now, Orbiting Jupiter).

We are looking for community members who write within their job requirements or for personal enrichment (and everything in between) to workshop with groups of 20-25 students in the morning.

The students bring a notebook and a pencil to your assigned classroom and learn something about writing--from you! Please forward this sign-up document to family and friends who may be able to help us.

Last year, we had community members lead sessions on food blogging, social media marketing, technical writing, advertising, personal journaling, writing for business, journalism, developing a script, historical research, legal writing, science fiction, and many other interesting topics.

You do not need to consider yourself a professional writer in order to participate.

Follow the link below to sign-up to lead a writing session:
