Parents and Teachers Together (PATT)
NOTE ABOUT 2021-22: We will update this page with information about the 2021-22 Elmwood School PATT as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!
Elmwood Elementary School's parent-teacher organization is Parents and Teachers Together (PATT). All Elmwood parents are welcome to participate in the organization, which organizes events and fundraisers to help us provide even better opportunities for our students.
To join for 2020-21, fill out a membership form and return it to school along with your dues, which are just $2 per member (parents, guardians, teachers and administrators).
About Elmwood PATT
Our PATT is an extremely active organization. Among other things, members organize and participate in the following events:
- Scholastic Book Fairs
- Family Social Nights
- Fun Fair
- School Supply Store
- Holiday Shop
Through its fundraising efforts, PATT has purchased the digital sign for our school, the protective carpet for our gym, and supplemental books for our classrooms — to name just a few things.
Each year the PATT elects officers to oversee the organization. The 2020-21 officers will be listed here when they have been determined. The 2019-20 officers were:
- President — Jennifer Ranallo
- Vice President — Cesia Bermudez & Heather Braglia
- Treasurer — Hanna Vargas
- Secretary — Jennifer Cardona
Becoming a PATT Member
As mentioned above, joining is easy. Just fill out a membership form and return it to school along with your dues, which are only $2 per person. A link to the membership form is also available in the column on the left side of this page.
Joining Elmwood PATT does not commit you to volunteering or participating "behind the scenes" in activities at the school. You can support the organization in other ways, such as making donations, which are tax deductible, or attending any of PATT's various events for the Elmwood community.
