Good Morning Patriot Families,
Wow! What a year it has been. I can truly say I’ve never experienced a school year with such incredible highs and lows all within the span of several months. First and foremost I’d like to take this time to thank each and everyone of you parents or guardians for all your support these past several months. As a parent myself I know it has been difficult and at times I’m sure you wanted to throw in the towel and give up. We’ve all been there at some point I’m sure. As we have continued through this distance learning we have gotten a glimpse of what our teachers do on a daily basis with classes full of children. It is amazing. It is not an easy task by any means. I applaud your efforts as parents for continuing to provide your students with opportunities to learn at home by allowing them to participate in Zoom meetings with their teachers and classmates and completing their assignments either digitally or via work packets.
As we finish our last day here at patriot for the 2019-2020 school year let’s all wish our sixth graders a fond farewell as they leave us for the wonderful world of Middle School! We will miss them on campus but I’m sure our current fifth graders are more than willing to take over for them. They will be the new leaders of the campus and set the example for everyone else.
Lastly, as we head into summer there are still many unknowns on what school will look like when we return in August. At this time we are still waiting on specific guidelines for re-opening our schools. As soon as that plan is adopted it will be shared with all our parents so that they can make informed decisions about their students. Until then, please enjoy your summer with your families and we will keep the last three months in the rear view mirror for now. I look forward to seeing everyone back on campus soon.
Take care everyone.
Patriot's Motto: "Children First"
From the beginning, Patriot's sole purpose has been to ensure that all students are successful. This child-centered philosophy was first evident when the children selected the school colors and mascot and at the inception of the Parent-Teacher Club (PTC). The PTC began planning their traditions with the continual focus of being supportive, not intrusive. Today we see over 100 parents on campus each week offering their knowledge and support.
