Dear PRIDE Families:
Your Patterson PTO is committed to building a strong, spirited community for all of our students to grow and learn. While doing so, it is the responsibility of the PTO to raise funds to enhance the educational facilities and opportunities which are not provided by the school (district) budget.
We are lucky to be a part of such a supportive community that participates in Family Fun Events, Restaurant Nights and the many Free FUNds programs offered. Funds raised are funneled into classrooms by way of supplies, periodicals, Art Masterpiece and so much more. Our teachers are so appreciative!
Our biggest fundraiser of the year is Progress for Patterson (P4P) and will take place in the spring, followed by the 2nd Annual Field Day. Watch for new and exciting details! Last year, we raised a whopping $23,000 thanks to the generosity of our PRIDE families. As promised, P4P funds were used to transform the library - update the look and add/improve content, the first tier of a multitiered project. The library and technology lab are quickly becoming the center of campus, where every student may benefit from new STEM based learning tools available to them. We are proud to continue to strive toward progress at our school.
Mark your calendars for the largest Family Fun Event of the year - Fall Festival will be under the stars on Friday, November 3. Fun, food, games and entertainment will be aplenty! We look forward to seeing you there!
As always, thank you for showing your PRIDE!
