Message from the Principal

Dear Patton Families, 

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! For those new to Patton, I want you to know that your child is attending one of Texas’s top schools. And to our returning families, thank you for your dedication to making Patton the best! Our theme this year is “BE THE FIRST.” Our staff is committed to maintaining a high standard of excellence in instruction and by creating a positive, welcoming environment for our students, parents, and community members. 

We hope that throughout the school year, our Parent Student Guidelines to Success (found under the Student tab in the Student Handbook) will serve as a valuable tool and easy reference. We look forward to our continued partnership to Patton Elementary School to make the MIGHTY PIONEERS a great place for all of our students. We are looking forward to an exciting and successful school year. We have prepared this handbook to provide a better understanding between school, parents and students. We ask for your cooperation so that we may provide your children with a rewarding and enriching educational experience. 

It’s GREAT to be a Patton Pioneer!
