We are pleased to welcome Mrs. Natasha Jackson to the PHS family. She is our new assistant princial. Congratularions to Mr. Mark Spradling on being named principal to Patterson Junior High.
Patterson High School has worked hard over the last eight years under the direction of Mrs. Sanders to improve student performance scores. All of the hard work paid off for the first time in the 2014-2015 school year when PHS posted an SPS score of a B. With a spirit of dedication and hard work students and faculty were able to achieve a SPS score of an A for the 2015-2016 school year.

During November, some St. Mary Parish students will be asked to take part in an important survey on substance abuse, school dropout issues, delinquency, and violence conducted by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. A copy of the survey can be found on this webage and on all school websites under District Links (at the bottom of each homepage) or at https://goo.gl/0FK1Ih.
At-Risk Interventionist Ms. Gidget Everitt, as the district's contact person, has released information about the survey, including a parent's ability to authorize an opt-out for a student. This Parent Letter includes the opt-out form, which will be included in a handout sent home to students in grades 6, 8, 10, and 12. Opt-out requests must be submitted to the school by Friday, October 21, 2016.

As part of this observation, parents are encouraged to "Take the Pledge" to empower kids to use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully, thus providing young people with the digital citizenship skills they need to thrive in today's world.
Here's the pledge: I pledge to empower my kids to use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully. Together, we will provide young people with the digital citizenship skills they need to thrive in today's world.
Why take the pledge? While technology provides increased opportunities for students, there is also a responsibility to teach them about technology's pitfalls so they can avoid them. If we don't teach our kids, who will?
