School Counselor's Corner

Weekend HOPE Packs

Each week the H.O.P.E. Packs Program offers a supplemental bag of food for children who need extra food during the weekends.

If you choose to enroll your child in this program they will receive a bag of food before going home each Friday. The food is intended to be kid-friendly, easy to prepare, and supply supplemental food over time away from school. The bags are not to be opened until your child gets home.

To sign up for this free program, please reach out to our school counselor, Annette White at annette_white@plsd.us or 614-834-2614. All personal information will be kept strictly confidential. Eligible students will not be able to receive their food until the attached form has been completed and returned.

Pickerington Schools are once again teaming up with the Violet Township Fire Department to help provide some holiday assistance for families in need during this holiday season.

Wanting to donate?

There are several ways to donate this year:

  • The traditional big red boxes throughout the community and in the schools accepting donations of new toys/gifts.
  • Gift cards are also appreciated.
  • Cash donations through Paypal.
  • Another way of donating this year is through Amazon and Target. If you would prefer to donate in this way, click on the links below. Be sure to ship to Violet Township Fire Department Toy Drive (address will appear as an option).

Please Welcome Our New School Nurse!

Hello! I’m Caitie DeShane and I will be joining the team as a nurse in your building.

A little about me: I have been a pediatric nurse for 14 years, I spent the first part of my career at Dayton Childrens and the last 9 years at Nationwide Childrens Hospital. I love working with kids and look forward to being a part of their journey outside of the hospital setting. I am a mom to 3 kids (6th, 4th & 2nd grade) who keep my husband and I on the go with their busy sports schedules! We enjoy being outside, traveling together and spending time with our crazy pup, Mac!

I look forward to meeting you soon!
