Happy National School Psychologist Week! Join us this week as we highlight the important work our school psychologists and other educators do to help all Putnam students thrive! ✨Together We Shine!✨ #SchoolPsychWeek #PositivelyPUTNAM #PutnamProud
This past Tuesday, Putnam County Schools joined more than 250 West Virginia schools receiving funds from the Ball Toyota Family of Dealerships to support students in need. Ball Toyota announced its partnership with the United Way of West Virginia to help schools set up ‘virtual pantries.’ Putnam County elementary, middle, and high schools received funds ranging from $1,000 to $1,300 designated to help provide essentials for virtual pantries, including basic needs such as food, clothing, shoes, coats, and hygiene products to students. Shawn Ball, the President of Ball Toyota, who worked with the West Virginia Department of Education and Communities in Schools, said school virtual pantries could be accessed by students scanning a QR code to request or ask for assistance/help. There will also be a suggestion-style box for students without phones to use. Both the QR code and the suggestion box will allow students to ask for help or put in a request privately or on their own in case they do not feel comfortable reaching out in front of others. This also will allow our schools to balance school pantries efficiently. Putnam County Schools would like to thank Ball Toyota for their incredible donation. We are so grateful and blessed to have community partnerships that share the goal of serving and supporting our students.
ATTN: PCS Families Your student will be bringing home state assessment results today if he/she took the WV General Summative Assessment (grades 3-8), the WV Alternate Student Assessment (grades 3-8), or the SAT School Day exam (grade 11) last spring. In addition, you and your student will also be receiving an email with a link to a video score report for WVGSA or WV SAT only. The video link is being sent to the student email account and the parent email on file with your student. Please have your student check their student email account to find the link. Simply copy the link into your web browser and use your student’s birthdate to open the video score report. Please Note: If you enter the birthdate incorrectly three times, the account will be locked. If you do not receive printed score reports OR if you have difficulty opening the video report, please contact the school for assistance. You may also call the school if you need assistance in interpreting your student's score report.
