Message from the Principal

Welcome to Patton Elementary School, Home of the Pioneers! I am proud to be the principal of Patton Elementary School. Our school motto is “Be the First”. Patton Pioneers want to strive to #BetheFirst. Our mission is to be a joyful and safe academic community that embraces diversity, creativity, and leadership.

At Patton Elementary we are especially blessed with supportive parents who are also determined to do whatever it takes for the success of their children. Our close partnership with parents most certainly contributes to the school’s effectiveness. I’d like to extend an open invitation to every parent to visit often and become an active part of your child’s education. We value your input and participation in helping Patton be the very best it can be. 

I am excited about the launch of the newly redesigned Patton Website where you will find resources, information, announcements and lots of fun images and “blurbs” about the many exciting events, programs and initiatives taking place at Patton. The website, our Twitter feed (@Patton_Pioneers), and Facebook page provide great opportunities to keep abreast of what is going on and to share in your children’s experiences.

Our unique partnership of staff, parents, and students at Patton Elementary make it the best school in Texas!

It’s GREAT to be a Patton Pioneer, 

Amanda Brantley, Principal

Patton families, we are excited to once again offer Track Attack to ALL of our students!

For those of you who don't know, Track Attack is a morning running program. We offer the students a chance to come run, walk, jog, skip, or use any other locomotor skill to get their wiggles out on the track from 7:15-7:30, two days a week! Fifteen minutes may not seem like much, but many of our students run more than a mile each day during Track Attack! Exercise before learning has a whole bunch of positive effects on our brains, including increased focus and retention and decreased behavioral problems! Kindergarten, 1st, & 2nd will have Track Attack on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:15-7:30. 3rd, 4th & 5th Grades will have Track Attack on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:15-7:30. Students must be finished with breakfast and waiting in their class lines at 7:15 to participate. Late students must stay with their class inside or be escorted to Track Attack by an adult. If the weather is not favorable for running, or the Coaches are not available, we will not be able to have Track Attack. We will do our best to communicate Track Attack cancellations via Twitter @PattonSpAreas. Follow us! Thank you for encouraging your students to stay #PattonFit!-Coach Blando & Coach Kunz.
