Patton Needs Help With a S.T.E.A.M. Initiative

Patton Middle School is excited to announce that we are building a "MakerSpace." A "MakerSpace" is a collaborative workplace where students with shared interests gather for making, learning, exploring and sharing. The goal of Patton's "MakerSpace is to assist in preparing our students for the critical 21st century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). The "MakerSpace" will provide our students with opportunities for hands on learning, problem solving and critical thinking skills.

We need your help to stock our MakeSpace.  If you have any of the following items that you would be willing to donate to Patton, please have your child drop them off at Patton's library.

Thanks so much for your help with this endeavor!!!!





 

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:

Donate for Run for our Sons

Please consider donating to our online silent auction to benefit the Johnson family.  

Our friend and coworker, Joanna Johnson (a UHS teacher) has two sons, Henry and Eliot, who suffer from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a degenerative muscle disease that affects one in 3,500 boys. Duchenne is diagnosed in early childhood and slowly robs boys of their muscle function, until eventually they are confined to wheelchairs and have trouble performing simple tasks.   As you can imagine, as the boys get older, the Johnsons' medical costs continue to rise.  

I have reached out to numerous partners in our community to help Joanna, her husband Paul and the boys to help defray some of their costs. Thankfully, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Philadelphia 76ers donated amazing game day experiences and tickets to upcoming games next season.In addition, my friend, community member, and Phillies broadcaster, Ben Davis kindly donated a number of Phillies items to us. I am sharing the following link with you for you to consider making a bid on one of these fabulous items.

http://www.ebay.com/usr/uhsteachers

All funds from this auction will go directly to the Johnson family.  The auction ends Friday, April 28th and is open to anyone, so please feel free to pass this on to others in our community directly and through your social media networks.
