Principal's Message

Hello Patton Family, 

Welcome back to the 2022-2023 school year! We are excited about our Pioneers returning soon! Our faculty and staff have worked diligently this summer to prepare for an amazing 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 motto 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.
 
As your principal, it is my mission to liberate the greatness in each student and staff member by providing an environment where everyone is welcomed and valued. I am deeply committed to educational equity and truly believe that all individuals can succeed when strong relationships are built and maintained. I believe that through the power of connection, excellence can be achieved. If I haven't had the opportunity yet, I look forward to connecting with each of you very soon!
 
All the best, 
Christine Snowden
