Here are some tips on how you can be a great sport and fan. #sportsmanshipmatters   #putnamproud   #respect

A Challenge to All Putnam County High School Alumni:      By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about the naming of the football field at our beloved alma mater in honor of former football coach, and Athletic Director, Dave Mitchell, on Friday, September 21st.

Football Field Dedication Ceremony Scheduled

Coach Dave Mitchell Honored

  Putnam County’s football field will be named after longtime football coach Dave Mitchell in a dedication ceremony Friday, September 21, 2018.   Many of us know the names of famous football coaches like John Madden, Vince Lombardi, Tony Dungy, and Bill Walsh to name a few.

PCMS Strives for Student Success

We are now past the PC Fair craziness and students at Putnam County Middle School are well adjusted and familiar with the routine and procedures set aside to ensure student success.  Everything is seemingly going well in the Middle School but some students are struggling to get all assignments completed on time.  If you are one of those students, please know there are simple strategies that you can do to help yourself.  1) Use your agenda to help you stay organized .  Some kids don't like using the agenda, but if you will use it as a tool to help you stay on top of your homework assignments, you will soon see it as a valuable tool.  Take the time and write in it each class period.  2) Use a folder and notebook for each class.  Although for some, having a notebook . . .

Celebrating the Dot

We kicked off the school year by making our own dots. Classes began by reading the book The Dot  by Peter H. Reynolds. Each grade level, preschool through fifth grade had to work within a certain color family. Students could use crayons, colored pencils, markers, and paint to create their dot creations. I plan on making a mural on the wall with all of the various dots. First grade also had a second lesson where they got to make dot universes.  We all enjoyed singing and dancing to the "Dot Song" music by Emily Arrow. Students were encouraged to "make their mark and make it matter." We discussed how this not only applied to art but other areas as well. The message was to start by trying and keep trying to get better. The older classes also talked about a deeper meaning of . . .

6th Grade Update

The sixth-grade students are going to start their first book study next week.  My reading classes will be starting to read the book Hatchet written by Gary Paulsen.  Together we will explore the adventure Brian had while stranded in a Canadian wilderness.  Along with reading the book, the students will be completing comprehension activities to help them truly understand the story elements. The sixth-grade English students are getting ready to start mapping out their very first Middle School Essay.  This is an exciting time for me as a teacher.  By having the students start with writing a personal narrative, I am able to learn a little bit more about each one of my students.  The writing process will take a few weeks to complete.  I will be sending out an email to all parents/guardians when . . .
