Thank you to everyone for the support of Patriot this year and the impact is remarkable.

    The committees that need chairman to step upbefore the next school year begins include the Fall Fundraiser & Family Fun Night committees. Additionally, if the budget passes a Boosterthon chair will be necessary as well.

    2016-2017 Budget

    The proposed budget is on the table for review. Motion approved by Don Hand and seconded by Monica Herd. Motion approved unanimously as received.


    Now that the vote has been made, we will send in the down payment and the contract will be in place. Boosterthon is scheduled for April 28-May 5th, 2017. Will be looking for a chairperson.

    Proposed By-Law change

    With regards to the scholarship committee. One school does it the same as Patriot and the other six do it completely different. We propose to add the Assistant Principal to the committee and this will be under the Executive Board to have a Standing Committee and no By-Law changes are required.
