****************************************************************************************  

    

Due to the lack of space in ALL grade level classrooms, we ask that this be a

     student/parent celebration and you limit visitors to 2 people for your child.

     No younger siblings! EVERYONE will need to show a valid ID to enter.

 

Fifth grade graduation is Wednesday, June 1st, from 9:00 – 11:00.  A

reception will be held in the 5th grade area following the ceremony.

Younger siblings enrolled at Pattison will not be pulled from classrooms

to attend.  EVERYONE will need to show a valid ID to enter.

   

     Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

-Pattison Administration

Each Spring the Pattison PTA President appoints a Financial Reconciliation Committee who preforms a review of the PTA books of accounts and records that the treasurer keeps following the end of our fiscal year in June. 

 

The  following members have been approved by the executive board and will be appointed to the Financial Reconciliation Committee: Lorie Hicks, Jen Roth and Jenny Swaney, with Courtney Synnott serving as an alternate should something prevent one of the other members from fulfilling their responsibilities later this summer.

5th GRADE PARENTS!

The 2016-17 MMJH PTA Officers would like to invite you to join them in serving on our PTA BOARD!  

 

Our new board is excited to plan next year's programs and events and we are looking for some new faces and some new ideas!  We welcome you to be engaged with our school and to stay connected to what's happening. So many parents "take a break" or "check out" after volunteering throughout elementary years. However, these few years are critical for giving our support to school community events as well as the wonderful staff of MMJH which are both so influential on our kiddos at this age.   Several of us are working parents and we support each other by sharing tasks to meet our goals. Really, there's a niche for everyone no matter your schedule, background, or past volunteer experience!  We sincerely appreciate your consideration!
