Letter from the Principal

Dear Patterson Road School Parents:

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Patterson Road Elementary School! I am Kate McInerney, your principal, and I am looking forward to a great year at Patterson Road School.

If you are new to Patterson Road School this year, welcome! We are so happy that you are here. Patterson Road is a wonderful community made up of terrific students, great parents and a dedicated and outstanding staff. I look forward to working together to provide an enriching, exciting and memorable school year. Parents, you are invited to be members of the educational team and to take an active role in your child’s education. You will find it very rewarding and fun too!

This is the latest edition of Patterson Road School’s handbook. I encourage you to review this handbook with your children and to use it as a reference guide throughout the school year.

If you have any questions about the rules and policies described in this handbook, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can reach me by phone at 938-8790, by email at, or in person at the school office.

Once again, welcome to what I know will be a terrific year. My door is always open so please stop by to introduce yourself and your children and to share comments, concerns or to ask questions.
