Our annual student-favorite coin drive FUNdraiser, PENNY WARS, is coming up from May 21-25th! Each classroom will pool their pennies – pennies count as POSITIVE point for your student’s class. All other coins and currency are place in other classrooms and count as NEGATIVE points. The classroom with the highest point value at the end of the week wins a special prize.
Students love this friendly competition, and we would love your help collecting coins and getting them counted each day! Please use this Sign Up Genius to see where we could use your help. More details regarding Penny Wars will come home in red folders next week, and will be posted here on Facebook as well.

Unfortunately, we did not receive enough interest to meet the minimum number of attendees required by Paint Night. We will look for other Paton Parent events in the future to help continue to build our community.
Shake off the winter blues with a fun night out with your fellow Paton moms! Join us in the Paton café where we’ll enjoy some ‘mocktails’ and dream of summer as the folks at Paint Night help up us warm up with beach thoughts.
This special Paton Paint night is $40 per person and a portion of all ticket sales will support our ongoing fundraising goals.
