Paterson Elementary Schools  supports our military-connected students and families. 

Paterson Elementary School is proud to support our military-connected students and families with a full-time Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLC) program. The MFLC program is designed to address the unique lifestyle of military families. Benefits to our students include easing transitions, meeting other military children who share similar circumstances, learning coping skills, and support through deployments and moving.   Activities include Lunch Bunch groups, Yellow Ribbon Ceremonies for deployments, and Deployment Groups.
