Heroes, Helpers & Hotdogs

Heroes, Helpers and HotDogs

We are excited to announce the NEW event that our school is hosting. It's called Heroes, Helpers & Hotdogs and it's open to the entire community.

The event will showcase many Heroes and Helpers with a "touch a truck" area, live demonstrations, and many interactive booths and activities.  In addition, there will be hotdog lunches for sale, as well as concessions and snow cones to raise money for our school.

We need your help to make this event a success.  We need both items (Tables, Tents, Baked Goods) and Volunteers during the event. Please sign up below.

Military Families at Pattie
Military Connected Family Corner
Staying Connected During Deployments

Though it is the service members' job, responsibility and commitment to servicing our country, deployments can be difficult for families.  It may be exceptionally difficult for students.  School-aged children know that Mom or Dad will be far away for a long time and this can be very emotional. It is important to maintain connection during family deployments.  Here are some helpful tips:
  • Use technology. Skype. Make an audio or video to share with Mom/Dad.
  • Write a letter. Share the good things that happened in school.  They would love to receive a handwritten note.
  • Make a scrapbook filled with pictures, homework, and drawings.
  • Create a new routine at home.  Have a backwards dinner.  Have desert FIRST!
  • Have a family FUN Day! Create a new memory. Leave the chores until later.  Lessen the stress.
  • Make a countdown calendar.  It helps students understand how long the deployed parent will be away.
  • The home-based parent needs to self-care.  Replenish when necessary.  Create balance with kids, work, friends, family and home life.  
  • Say "I Love You".  Mom, Dad and children need to hear it, often.  It assures a sense of security and connectivity.
Free Resources: School-aged children feel stressed when a parent is deployed.  Creative activities that keep connections with the deployed parent eases the strain of separation.
