Hello all!
It’s been a fantastic week at Patsy Sommer Elementary!  Our back to school nights are running smoothly as parents are informed about the grade level expectations.  Here are
some quick notes to reinforce car rider safety, some words from our Fabulous PTA, and dates to remember.  Let’s finish the week strong and have a wonderful 3-day weekend!!  

Traffic Safety
In an effort to make our morning drop off the safest for our students, here are some reminders that would help to ensure student safety and a more efficient drop off system.

  • Please remember no electronic device usage is permitted.
  • Do not stop on or block the cross walks at any time.
  • PLEASE STAY IN YOUR CAR and safety patrol or school faculty will help your student out of the vehicle.
  • Please make sure your student’s booster or car seat is on the correct side for the lane you prefer, or that your student can climb across safely. (Safety Patrol students                                             do not walk around your vehicle for their own safety.)

Our PTA is our biggest supporter of ALL students on campus. We encourage you to join this amazing group of parents! 100% of our staff join every year. How cool to have
100% of our families as well!
