Carnival Basket Raffle

The Patton Spring Carnival will be held on Friday, May 2nd this year from 2:30-7:00 pm. The Carnival is the largest fundraiser for the Patton MS PTO. THE PATTON CARNIVAL BASKET RAFFLE is the most profitable part of the Carnival event!!! Here is how it works: The Prime Time teachers and students pick a basket theme. The students are then asked to donate specific items, monetary gifts, or gift cards towards their Prime Time’s Raffle Basket. The students have several weeks to bring in their basket raffle donation to their Prime Time before the PTO Basket Raffle Committee collects all of the themed baskets for numbering and wrapping. (Tuesday, April 8th) The Raffle Baskets will be put out for display 3 days prior to the Carnival for all of the students to see during their lunch periods. Carnival Tickets will be on sale at that time for the students to purchase for the basket raffle and other Carnival Activities. The Basket Raffle ticket sales continue throughout the day of the Carnival on May 2rd until the winning tickets are pulled for each basket at 7:00 pm. If you have any questions regarding the Patton Spring Carnival or the Basket Raffle Donations, please feel free to contact Ann Bell at for more information.

Family Fun Night!

The PTO-sponsored Family Fun Night featuring the Students vs. Staff Basketball Game took place February 21 in front of a packed gymnasium! Families were entertained to a great contest in which the students narrowly edged the staff team in a close game. There was great music and halftime dancing and some lucky students won a chance to take a 1/2 court shot and the opportunity to win $100! Thanks to Patton staff members who took part in the evening and to the organizers for a great night. You can check out some photos from the night here.
