Volunteer to help clean up 10/21

The Unionville Community Bike Drive needs your Gently Used bikes!!  Volunteers collect and refurbish both children’s and adult bicycles each year. The bicycles are given to families in need from the community during the holiday season.  


This year’s last collection date is:

Sat, October 7th from 9:00 am – Noon

at the white barn on the corner of 926 and Graychal Lane (1615 East Street Road).  In addition to bicycles, small riding toys (like cozy coupes, etc) are welcome as well as new helmets, new/used scooters and bike accessories.  


We also need volunteers to repair, clean and organize bikes on our clean-up day Saturday October 21st at the Middle School.  Please email Stuart Lindsay at if you are interested in the clean-up day or if you have a bike that you can’t drop off at one of the dates above.






Let your student show some Hawk Spirit by selecting some cool items from our online store.  All orders will be delivered to your son or daughter at Patton.  We are only accepting online orders at this time however, we will continue to be selling in person at different events throughout the year.  Look for us next on Shadow Day (October 27th) when we will be set up in the library.  Please contact Tammy Hynes at with any questions.  GO HAWKS!

When writing bus notes, NO bus note can be written for more than 2 students riding home with a friend. No exceptions! Also, remind your child that bus notes MUST be turned in during Advisory at the start of the day to allow staff to process notes for dismissal. Thank you for your cooperation!
