Nationally recognized school communications

Pattonville's school-community relations department earned the National School Public Relations Association's (NSPRA) Gold Medallion Award, the highest award given by the association in recognition of outstanding educational public relations programs. Pattonville won in the category of COVID-19 communications in 2021 and for comprehensive, strategic, year-round communications program in 2020. The 2021 award marks the third time Pattonville’s school-community relations department earned the Gold Medallion. The department also earned the award in 1985 for its Internal Staff Two-Way Public Relations Program. Pattonville has had a formal communications program since 1965, which has grown into a multifaceted, multimedia program that uses data to evaluate and improve its services to the school community. The department supports the district’s mission “That All Will Learn” by facilitating communication with internal and external audiences and building and maintaining relationships to continue Pattonville’s high level of community support and involvement.
