Paton hosts Open House this Friday, August 22nd

Paton Open House will be held on Friday, August 22nd from 3:00 – 5:00. This annual event is for families who want to tour the school before the start of the year. This is also a time when you can ask questions, drop off school supplies and get to know the general lay out of the building if you are an incoming First Grader or Kindergarten family who has not attended Paton in the past.  Come on down and get to know your school!

Other notes:

The Paton PTO is also seeking volunteers to help with other back-to-school events in the next week as we head back for the school year. They include:

Teacher Luncheon: This welcome back to school luncheon for teachers will be held on August 25th. The hospitality co-chairs are seeking volunteers to help out. Sign up to bring items for the lunch or to help out at this link:

First day of school bus welcome committee: Each year a group of parents is on hand at the school to welcome students in to the building and offer extra hands in assisting with the back-to-school, first-day rush by answering student questions and offering other support as needed. We will need volunteers two days this year – on 8/26 for the first day for grades 1-4 and then again on 8/27 for Kindergarteners.

Sign up to help out here:

First week of school lunch: Volunteers are needed to help out at lunch time and sit with Kindergarten and First Graders who are new to the school and may like the helping hands of a reassuring adult to help with new-school anxiety, getting to know the lunch room and opening lunch box items.

Please sign up to volunteer for lunch duty here:

Other volunteer opportunities this year in positions assisting with events and PTO initiatives include:
