Fourth Grade Celebration

It’s hard to believe in just a short amount of time our 4th graders will be heading to Sherwood Middle School!  The 4th Grade Celebration Committee has been formed and is working hard to organize the end of the year activities.

IMPORTANT: Please complete this form for your 4th grade student.

4th Grade Graduation
Tuesday, June 15th 10:00-11:30 AM
(Rain Dates: Wednesday, June 16th or Thursday, June 17th).  

The ceremony will run from 10:00-11:00 AM.  Following the ceremony, from 11:00-11:30, there will be time for pictures and greeting.  

All 4th grade students will then be treated to both a picnic lunch and yearbook signing that afternoon. Please plan for normal dismissal time/pick up on that day.

Thankful for My Flock

Who are you thankful for this year?

Are you thankful for Mom and Dad? How about Grandma and Grandpa? Your postal or grocery store worker? Your neighbor or friend? Your teachers for making learning fun, no matter where your classroom is this year?

The Paton School Community will be showing Shrewsbury how thankful we are for the special people in our lives.

How can you participate in the Thankful For My Flock fundraiser?

  1. Clink the link below, complete the form, and tell us who you are thankful for this year.
  2. With the donation of $5, we will put that name(s) on a decorative turkey and place it on the front lawn of Paton School along Route 140.

Let’s see how many turkeys we can get on the front lawn and start a new tradition!

Turkeys can be purchased through November 25th.
