Blizzard Bag #1

The State of Ohio allows us to utilize “at home” work for students in case of a snow day beyond our 5 calamity days.  Attached you will find the work we would like for your child to complete while at home.  You must send the completed projects to school in two weeks in order to get credit.  If the work is not returned, your child will be counted absent for the day. Please take time over the next two weeks to work with your child on these assignments.  They are due back to school on Friday, April 11th.  We will be sending home Blizzard Bag #2 next Friday, April 4th, and the 3rd and final Blizzard Bag on Friday April 11th.

Get Rid of that VCR!!!

Do you have an old VCR laying around your house that you don't use.  Well good news, we will take it.  We had a power surge wipe out several VCR's in the building. First grade teachers use their VCR's everyday during reading as part of the reading program.  Next year, these videos will be on an on-line format.  So we will take your old, dust collecting VCR if you are willing to part with it!

We Did It Again!!

I am extremely excited to announce that Putman Elementary School and Blanchester High School have been selected by the Ohio Department of Education as Schools of Promise and as High Performing Schools of Honor! There is over 3,000 schools in the state of Ohio, only 37 received the High Performing School of Honor title and 141 received the School of Promise.
