🎓 Bridging the Past and the Future, One Step at a Time 🎓 Seniors from across the District took a stroll down memory lane at their former elementary schools today for their "Senior Walk" as current elementary students and their former teachers cheered them on. There was no shortage of hugs, laughs, high fives, and even embarrassing photos shared by all. It seems like just yesterday these "little learners" were walking these halls, and now they are walking across the stage as the "big kids."

📚 Trading in Words Per Minute for Miles Per Hour 🚲 The Pirates at D.D. Kirkland Elementary have been working hard to level up their reading and grow as a learner with help from some nearby community volunteers at Lakeside United Methodist Church. In addition to providing the new bikes to these lucky winners, the community volunteers have been actively mentoring, encouraging, and reading with our little Pirates to help them achieve new skills. Next, we think they'll achieve some land speed records with these new wheels! We can't thank our community partners across the District enough for all they do. 🧡

⭐️ Putnam City Schools Museum 2024 Lifetime Service Award ⭐️ This award was honorably celebrated last night as these recipients shared just what Putnam City Schools means to them personally. Nothing but ribbons of pure care and love for Putnam City District wrapped the box that was the anecdotes ensuring the right decision was made for this award! 🔵 Jean Mullican She and her husband moved into the Putnam City school district in 1974. They bought a home in the Tulakes Elementary School area where their children went. When school began, Jean and Lee proudly joined PTA. She was elected PTA president in 1976, presiding over monthly meetings of representatives from all 27 Putnam City Schools PTA units. After resigning from President, she remained a devoted volunteer at Hefner Junior High School, Central Junior High School and Putnam City High School. Her volunteerism has continued even after her children graduated as proud Pirates of Putnam City High School. 🟠Alice Story This posthumous award was accepted by her pride-filled family pictured below. Alice Story was an amazing teacher, friend and aunt. Her career at Windsor Hills Elementary began in the fall of 1962 and continued, without a break, until Spring 2013 — a staggering 52 years! After she retired, she continued to volunteer at WHE until her death in 2019. To recognize her passion for educating children, a butterfly garden was dedicated to her by Windsor Hills Elementary. 🟡Jayne Miller Manley Jayne attended Putnam City High School and graduated in 1961. She never really left. For approximately 15 years, she has contributed her efforts and happy personality to the Putnam City High School Alumni Association, especially during reunion weekends.

🚔 We would like to take this opportunity to highlight two of our Putnam City Campus Police Officers who recently carried out a heroic deed while off duty. Officers Spencer and DeBelly were working out at a local gym when they noticed a female face down and unresponsive on gym equipment. Officer Spencer began to assess the situation and care for the female while Officer DeBelly retrieved medical equipment from Spencer's vehicle. While assessing and caring for the female, she stopped breathing and had no pulse. Officer Spencer immediately began life-saving CPR until paramedics arrived on the scene and transported her to the hospital. At last check, the female is alive and recovering. We are beyond proud of Officer Spencer and Officer DeBelly for their heroic act to save this woman's life. Thank you for choosing Putnam City Schools, and for protecting our students, staff, campuses, and local community - on duty and off duty. 💙
