Each year, Pattonville School District honors those who serve in the district with its Pride of Pattonville award. These awards are given to recognize excellence in performance, service, character and contributions demonstrated by those who serve in the Pattonville School District. Any district employee, parent, volunteer or other friend of Pattonville is eligible to receive a Pride of Pattonville honor. Nominations can be submitted online at www.psdr3.org/nominate and paper nomination forms are available throughout the district.
The award is based on several criteria, including service to the district above and beyond the call of duty, numerous types and years of service, support of the district and participation in its functions and excellence in job performance as a staff member or volunteer.
A screening committee consisting of Pride of Pattonville award recipients from the last two years makes the selection from the nominations submitted. Up to 10 awards are given each year. The screening committee will notify the recipients of their selection at least one week before the annual District Appreciation Night on May 1, when the awards will be presented. District Appreciation Night is an award and recognition program that everyone is invited to attend.
