Dear Patterson Families, 

Welcome back! I am excited to begin yet another year and thrilled to kick off this year with optimism and hope. As we quickly approach the start of a new year I would like to start by saying thank you to all of our students and their families for choosing Patterson as your child’s school. It is a great responsibility to educate your children, and I am humbled that you trust our staff to meet that responsibility. 

As we start the school year off I would like to introduce several new staff to our school. Please help me welcome Ms. Strait as our new IB Coordinator/Instructional Coach. Ms. Strait has served Jeffco as a 2nd grade teacher at Swanson Elementary, and she has already begun her work over the summer in planning and preparation for the return of staff. Also joining the team is Ms. Kirby who will serve as our new ESL teacher as Ms. Watters will be moving into the classroom as a 1st grade teacher. Ms. Kirby is joining us from Coronado Elementary where she served as a 1st grade teacher. Please also help me welcome Ms. Rice as a new part time member of our Intervention Services team. Ms. Rice will be supporting the Patterson community as well as Jefferson Junior/Senior. Ms. Rice was working at Bear Creek K-8 in a similar role last year. Lastly, please welcome back Ms. Hubbard as our new Digital Teacher Librarian (DTL). Ms. Hubbard was a 1st grade teacher at Patterson two years ago and last year served as a DTL at Weber and Fremont Elementary Schools. 

This year our classroom teachers will be implementing an exciting new Literacy Program called Into Reading. This program will help our teachers continue to build engaging and rigorous lessons to support all children K-6 in reading and writing. This program will be the focus of our professional learning as we implement this exciting new resource into our daily lessons and IB planning. 

I look forward to seeing all the students as they return. August 16th is our first day for 1st-6th graders and I am excited to be meeting our new kindergarten class when they start on August 18th. Please look for communications about registration, Kindergarten assessments days, back to school night, and more information on the start of the 2022-23 school year on the website. If you have any questions about registration or the start of the school year please feel free to call the office at 303-982-8470.
