Dear Patwin Families,


It is hard to believe that this school year is so rapidly coming to an end. I want to say how very proud I am of the accomplishments of all of our students. We have had a very successful year, and everyone including our teachers, parents, and students have worked hard for this to happen. A very special thank you goes to our PTA volunteers! All of these efforts joined together are what makes Patwin Elementary a place where all students feel valued. The student council this year has kept the spirit going all year long making sure that we have had fun filled spirit days. Mrs. Bowen and Mrs. Nahal for working with our student council this year. Another big thanks goes out to Mrs. Bowen for organizing and executing our fabulous monthly character education and spirit assemblies.  If you haven’t seen one of our assemblies, please feel free to attend on the first Wed. of every month.  Thank you to Mrs. Bowers and Dina Flamik for organizing and making sure our  Talent Show was a success.  Our students really look forward to that each year.  We sure do have a lot of talent here at Patwin! 

Our 3rd – 6th graders have begun statewide CAASPP testing and I must say I am very impressed to see how diligently the students are working.  The format is familiar to them since they have had practice tests before the official ones began.  They have also had access to working on chrome books all year so the technology is also familiar.  Everyone in grades 3-6 will receive the results of their test scores in Fall 2018.

We still have plenty of upcoming events in May and June and hope you will join us for our Kinder Olympics, Patwin Day, Sixth Grade Recreation Night and end of the year field trips. The last day of school is  a minimum day scheduled for Thursday, June 7th. Report cards will be sent home on this day. Summer break begins Friday June 8th!
