PMES Chromebook Checkout for DLD on November 9th

With the approaching third digital learning day on November 9th, we want to make sure our students are prepared with the needed materials for an optimal learning experience. If your child will need to bring home a school-issued Chromebook, please complete the PMES Device Checkout Form. You will need to complete this form again even if it was completed at the beginning of the year or for the last two DLDs. This is to ensure that we have an accurate count of the Chromebooks leaving the building as student device needs may change between digital learning days. Students will not be permitted to bring home a device from school unless this form is completed by a parent/guardian. If needed, please complete the form by Friday, November 5th.

Relay for Life Hat Day

RFL Hat Day is on November 19th! For a $1 donation to Relay for Life, you can wear your favorite hat to school.

Project-Based Learning Community Survey

Puckett's Mill Elementary is incorporating Project Based Learning in Science, Social Studies, and Math. In order to tie in authentic, real-world connections, we are looking for individuals willing to share their knowledge and experiences with students. If you are willing to enhance the learning of countless students, please share with us: hobbies, present/past careers, areas of expertise, travels, the possibilities are endless by completing the form linked here. There are so many connections that can be made to our curriculum! Completing this form is not a commitment. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Mrs. Lessard or Mrs. Banfield.

Media Center Volunteers Needed

We are also so excited to welcome back volunteers to our Media Center. We need your help! If you have some spare time, enjoy helping children, and helping out in your community...please fill out this Google form and we will contact you!
