At this special and free night our school will recognize our PMES Science Fair participants and every child is invited to investigate exciting careers in Science, Engineering, Math and Technology. This a wildly popular evening. Science Fair Families are given a “Golden Ticket” to enter early. General Admission starts at 5:45.
Puckett's Mill Relay for Life Team is having a Used Book Sale and we need book donations to make this successful. If you have gently used books at home and want to make room for new books, we will be accepting donations all next week (January 11-15). Collection boxes will be in your teacher's classroom. During the week of January 25th, each class will have an opportunity to purchase books for only $1.00 each. All proceeds will benefit Relay for Life.
