I am Principal Michele Frost, and I am pleased to welcome you to Patterson Elementary for the 2023-24 School year. Patterson opened in 1993; this school has had 30 amazing years! To celebrate, our "Burrow" is receiving a bit of a makeover. This year, we have new flooring everywhere but the gym, which will be redone by next school year. We also gave the classroom walls a fresh coat of paint, repaved the parking lot, received a teacher's lounge makeover by our PTA, and grant-funded new playground equipment is still under construction. In addition to looking great, Patterson is well-known for our high academic achievements, inclusive environment, and award-winning Positive School Climate! We are the Patterson Prairie Dogs; our school colors are Green and Gray. We refer to Patterson as "the burrow," where all Prairie Dogs love to be! I am so proud to be a part of this amazing school community. This will be my 15th and final year as the Principal at Patterson; I will be retiring at the end of June after nearly four decades in education. We have added an amazing new Student Services Coordinator to our team, So let's make this the best year yet at Patterson Elementary!
Michele Frost, Principal
