Patterson Elementary is No Place for Hate
Patterson is proud to be working to become an Anti-Defamation League "No Place for Hate" School.
We are committed in making our campus a safe school with a culture that values all students and staff. We encourage you to visit this page often to see the amazing things that we are doing to:
- Build an inclusive and safe community in which respect is the goal, and all can thrive.
- Empower students, faculty, administration and family members to take a stand against hate and bullying by incorporating new and existing programs under one powerful message.
- Engage our school and community through the implementation of at least three campus-wide anti-bias activities per year, which ADL helps to develop.
- Send clear, unified message that all students have a place to belong.
Activity 1- Responding to Bullying and Teasing
In the month of October our Panthers explored the different roles people play in a bullying or bias situations. Together students learned what to do and how to avoid bullying.
Activity 2- Understanding, Expressing, and Managing Feelings
On January 16th, our wonderful Panthers enjoyed listing different feelings and using nonverbal communication to express and guess feelings. Further, identifying helpful and non-helpful responses to those feelings.

Please enjoy our first year activities as we became a No Place for Hate School.
At Patterson Elementary our Panthers and staff discussed and signed the Resolution of Respect in October!
Activity #1: Panthers Mix It Up at Lunch!
On October 2nd, JPE Panthers Mixed It Up at Lunch! Students were able to break social boundaries by seating, eating, and meeting different friends in their grade level. Our Panthers were excited to learn and talk with friends from different classes. Mix It Up at Lunch was such a success that our goal is to do it again second semester!
Activity #2: Panthers Tree of Respect and Kindness!
On February 13th, JPE Panthers participated in a lesson about respect and kindness! Panthers learned what respect and kindness means, the importance of respecting and showing kindness to all, and what are ways they can show respect and kindness daily. All panthers were given a cut-out hand and asked to write at least one way they will show respect and kindness to others for the rest of the school year. Our Panthers are such high achievers they wrote more than one way to show respect and kindness!
Activity #3: Panthers Understand the Importance of Diversity!
In April, JPE Panthers participated in a lesson about diversity! Panthers learned what diversity means, the importance of accepting and respecting each other's differences and celebrating our uniqueness.
