Honor Roll Breakfast
On Thursday, April 16th, students with a third quarter grade point average of 3.5 or better were recognized at a breakfast in the commons. Over one-third of Patton students were on the honor roll—77 sixth graders, 111 seventh graders, and 96 eighth graders. Principal Crain encouraged students to continue working hard, reminding them that those who graduate from high school with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better can receive up to two years of free tuition at Chemeketa Community College. Congratulations to all of you for your hard work!
Leadership students are running a school-wide fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma society called Pennies for Patients. We have posters around the school stating that our goal is $800 (if everyone donated a dollar!). Each student, that wants to participate, will get their very own collection box. Students are not required to participate.
