Preparing for Parent-Teacher Conferences

As I write this letter it is finally Fall and 37 degrees this morning. The leaves on the trees are a wonderful spectrum of beautiful colors. It is absolutely my favorite time of year. It is hard to believe, though, we are nearly through the first quarter of school. Which means parent-teacher conferences will be occurring on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm. There were some slight adjustments to the school calendar this year and one of those changes is to parent-teacher conference week. Conferences will be held on Wednesday, October 17, instead of the usual Thursday. On Thursday, October 18, our teachers will be receiving professional development in First Aid for Mental Health. On Friday, October 19 there will be no school. Classes will resume on Monday, October 22. It is our hope that by condensing . . .

Late Start Information

❄️In the case of bad weather, at times we incorporate late starts when we feel it would be safe to do so. Here are some important facts about a late start:   ❄️We will do a school announcement letting you know how many hours we will delay the start of the school day. For example, if we delay for two hours, then school starts at 10:15 a.m.   ❄️Radio stations and KTVO will be informed of our late start time.   🕙If the school day is started two hours late, the bus will run two hours behind its regular schedule. For example, if your student normally gets picked up at 7:15 AM, your student will get picked up at about 9:15 AM.   ❄️Soar will continue with its regular hours. Students should not come to the school until the delay is over or 20 minutes . . .

PCMS Dance is October 17!

The first Putnam County Middle School dance of the school year is right around the corner. Students bring your dancing shoes, good attitudes, and join the fun on Wednesday, October 17 from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm in the Middle School Commons. The first dance is always a big hit and filled with anticipation and nerves. PCMS students won't be disappointed with this one either! We have a great playlist set up by the students (school appropriate of course). Admission is $4 per person and students must arrive by 6:45 pm and be picked up by 8:45 pm or they won't be allowed to attend the next dance. Students need to be sure their fines and fees are paid down to under $50. See you next Wednesday night at 6:30!

But I Can't Draw!

You want to draw, but the idea of where to start is just overwhelming. You’re probably spending too much time worrying about it! A lot of the time artists worry too much about the outcome, always wanting to reach perfection. When really, to improve your skills you just need to observe and practice. 1. Practice Without Photos Keep it simple: Make your sketches from something actually in front of you. That means a real, still-life subject that’s sitting before you! This will help you to create a three-dimensional view onto a flat surface without the middleman (a photo). You can also move your angle, arrange the subject differently, and change your lighting...all artistic choices that can change your work. 2. Find a Focal Point Try a couple of quick sketches: These can help you determine what your eye and . . .

Freshman Class Fundraiser

What is the meaning of life? All evidence to date suggests it’s chocolate.

The Putnam County Freshman Class is gearing up for their fundraiser, which begins on Tuesday, October 16 and ends on Tuesday, October 30. This is perfect timing if you're looking for some Halloween treats! Each freshman will have a box of candy bars for sale at the bargain price of $1 each. Class fundraisers help students collectively pay for things like caps and gowns, decorating for the senior class for prom when their class is in their junior year, and to assist with the costs of their senior trip.  Support our students: put “eat chocolate” at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you’ll get two things done. Besides, there are only three things in life that matter – good friends, good chocolate and, oh dear, what was that other one? ***If . . .

Screenings Are Done And Speech Has Begun

  Ms. Wickert and I have completed our speech, language, and hearing screenings for the elementary and sent home permission forms for speech intervention services for anyone we felt needed to work on speech sounds.  If your child did not receive a permission form, but you have concerns with their speech, please feel free to contact Ms. Wickert or me anytime; however, it is most likely because their speech errors are still age-appropriate and may remediate on their own.  For a reference of the normative ages of acquisition of sounds, please see https://dese.mo.gov/sites/default/files/se-com-state-normative-data.pdf   .  We are seeing students with IEP’s and will be adding students for speech intervention as permission is received to do so.  Parent-teacher conferences will be in a couple . . .

Cityscapes and Triangles!

Third grade has been busy creating beautiful cityscapes. They each learned about cityscapes and made their own cutout patterns. Then we used brightly colored chalk and rubbed it onto our black papers. Each student added a moon, stars, and windows to finish off the beautiful landscapes. I believe these might be wonderful additions to our Spring Art Show. The kids did a great job and they look wonderful! Preschool has been having fun learning about different shapes and colors. We recently learned about our friend the triangle. We colored triangles, glued triangles into a collage, and their favorite, made a giant taped triangle on the floor. Students got their photo taken while standing in their triangle. We got to jump in and out and walk around it. We learned it had 3 sides and 3 corners.
