Each graduate will receive 12 tickets—2 floor & 10 bleacher. Seats will be first-come, first-served. Seats will not be held for anyone. Guests are to use the proper entrance for each ticket type. Make sure you do not have the tickets on you. Your guests need them to enter.
If it breathes, it needs a ticket.
Parents and family members will not be allowed to have balloons, flowers and other gifts for graduates in the building—they will be turned away at the door by security.
Guests will not be allowed to take photos at the diploma table. Pictures will have to be taken from their seats. Mr. Gussman has you covered!
You will exit the gym two by two immediately after the alma mater. Do not stop! Go directly to your diploma room. Guests will exit using the door they entered and meet you outside. Guests in bleachers will not come down to floor. Floor guests will not stop graduates.

I am truly honored to serve our community as Principal of Patterson High School. As an alumni of this school and life-long resident of Patterson, it is my goal to serve our community by creating a culture within our school that we can all be proud of. It is my mission to lead with the passion and pride of a true Lumberjack!
If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has some called and asked you to verify your FEMA registration?
Multiple complaints have been filed by people who have been scammed by thieves pretending to be employees of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). These include survivors from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as victims of the California wildfires.
Victims have received phone calls asking them for personal information--even though they didn't apply for FEMA assistance.
When victims do try to apply for FEMA assistance, they discover that someone has already applied using their names because they receive a "verification error."
People claiming to be FEMA inspectors have been asking to gain entry to damaged homes. These individuals wear a shirt or jacket with the FEMA name, but they do not possess a FEMA photo ID badge.
Inspectors ask for money before starting an inspection. (Federal and state workers will never ask for or accept money.
If you or someone you know may have fallen victim to or have knowledge of these types of frauds, visit the FEMA Disaster Fraud page for more information.
