All 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students will be taking the practice SAT (PSAT) on Wednesday, October 12th. This is the National Merit Qualifying Test for 11th graders. The test will begin promptly after the tardy bell and is estimated to be over, for most students, by 12:30. To keep from having Test Irregularities, no student sign outs will be permitted during testing and sign outs after the test must be done in person, no notes will be permitted. Students are not permitted to bring anything into the testing room except for number 2 pencils (non-mechanical), an approved calculator and water. All other personal items, including phones, Apple watches, etc. must be left outside of the testing room. Students will report directly to their testing room when the bell rings. We encourage students to get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast and come prepared to do their best on the test.
As part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), school systems are required to provide assessment notification to parents and families regarding federal, state, and district-required assessments. That notification document can be found on our Putnam County Schools website under Menu and Parents. If you need help accessing the document, please contact the school, and we can help you locate it. Not all assessments listed on the document are required - some of the state level assessments are optional and others pertain only to certain programmatic levels. If you have questions, do not hesitate to ask the school. Thank you!

ATTENTION TO ANY FORMER GOLDEN HORSESHOE WINNERS Governor and First Lady Justice Welcome Past Golden Horseshoe Winners to Reunion CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Governor Jim Justice and First Lady Cathy Justice, along with the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History (WVDACH), would like to invite all past Golden Horseshoe award winners to a special reunion to acknowledge the accomplishments of those who have received this prestigious award. The program will take place on Monday, June 20, 2022, from noon – 2 p.m. at the Culture Center, State Capitol Complex in Charleston, and will feature a ceremony and reception. This event will be part of the annual West Virginia Day celebration. Since 1931, more than 15,000 West Virginia students have received the Golden Horseshoe Award in recognition of their knowledge of West Virginia history. Each year, thousands of eighth graders across the state take the Golden Horseshoe examination, and more than two hundred are inducted into the prestigious Golden Horseshoe Society each year. For more information and to register for the event, go to https://wvculture.org/event/golden-horseshoe-reunion/ or contact Andrea Thompson, WVDACH deputy curator, at Andrea.D.Thompson@wv.gov.
Good morning, We have been monitoring the weather throughout the week for tonight’s graduation. After careful consideration of all the factors, we have decided to move tonight’s graduation ceremony into the gymnasium. Doors to the school will open at 6pm and the graduation ceremony will begin at 7pm. We will have a live stream of the ceremony as well, please use the link below. We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2022 with you this evening. https://youtu.be/Zpu7bxmFXPQ
Good morning seniors and senior parents. Congratulations, we have made it to the final day of your senior year, and we are just as excited and anxious as you are for all of the festivities that go along with it. I am contacting you today to give you an update on Friday’s Graduation Ceremony. We are continuing to monitor the weather for Friday evening. Regardless of weather, Graduation will be on Friday evening at 7pm on the campus of Buffalo High School. Our desire is to have our Graduation Ceremony outside on the football field, but our backup plan would be to move it into the gym if mother nature does not cooperate. We will make a final decision on the location by Friday morning. Thank you and have a great day.
