Developing Mutual Respect, Cooperation and Responsibility in our Learning Environment is our Focus.
We believe that a community of parents, students, teachers and administrators can create a positive learning environment. Adults and children can feel encouraged and empowered to accept themselves and others and to work together for the good of all. Our goal at Patterson is to build skills, which promote learning and mutual respect.
Patterson Positive Pillars
PBIS is a systems approach designed to enhance the capacity of schools to educate all students and adopt and sustain the use of best practices for teaching academic and social behavior. This plan emphasizes an instructional and positive approach to discipline. At Patterson Elementary School, we expect and encourage all children to follow the “Patterson Positive Pillars”:
1. Be Safe
2. Be Respectful
3. Be Responsible
Students will be encouraged to display the “Patterson Positive Pillars” and will be recognized in the following ways:
*Earning tickets for grade level rewards and for office raffle
*Positive communication home via notes, email, phone calls
There are a number of activities at Patterson School in which students can become involved. Before and after school activities have become increasingly popular among the students in the intermediate grades. Information regarding available activities is shared throughout the school year.
