Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15 through October 15. Patton PTA recognizes the invaluable contributions made by Hispanic and Latino Americans in our community! Look for a series of posts on Patton PTA’s Facebook over the next few weeks highlighting Hispanic culture around the globe and here in Austin. There will also be a short program for Hispanic Heritage Month during our school-wide assembly on Friday, October 18.

Box Tops Contest
As most of you know Box Tops is going digital. If you haven’t already, please download the app and start scanning your receipts, every little bit helps! In the meantime we are still accepting clipped Box Tops, so we’re having a contest! There will be one winning class per grade level. Please send in your properly clipped and unexpired Box Tops by Monday 10/21. Be sure to write your teachers name on your bag or envelope so your class will get proper credit.

Fundraising update
We raised $270.52 at Austin Pizza Garden Spirit Day and $301.06 at Five Guys Spirit Day. Thank you for supporting our wonderful Patton community and our PTA!
