Hello Putnam Ave. Family,

Even though we wrapped up Teacher Appreciation Week over a week ago, please make sure to give a shout out to our amazing staff who have been diligently working to support students, families, and one another!

By the end of this week--as a school--we will have:
  • Completed our 10th week of emergency learning and engagement,
  • Offered support and made contact with every student and/or family at Putnam Avenue, as well as returning hundreds of emails, phone calls, and text messages,
  • Provided students and families in need with access to technology,
  • Hosted over 250 Google Meet sessions--including: advisory, ESL support, GSA, office hours in content areas, student check-ins and support, games, a Digital Literacy MeetUp, and special education services,
  • Designed and created over 720 emergency learning options for students--including specialties,
  • Offered over 585 hours of office hours to support students and families,
  • Created and maintained Google Classrooms and Google sites to keep our students engaged and learning,
  • Hosted a virtual Debate Tournament, a Flagway Tournament, and supported our students in the YPP Math Playbook,
  • Maintained counseling support and access to three counselors,
  • Built and shared a PAUS Family Website and a PAUS Staff Website to centralize information and provide support,
  • Participated in virtual grade level team meetings, staff meetings, district department meetings, leadership team meetings, and admin meetings,
  • Offered a staff and family wellness challenge, as well as
  • Cared for our own families and sought balance for ourselves.
This time of school closure is an opportunity to practice our core values of balance--by spending time with our families and doing things that energize us at home--and perseverance--by continuing to overcome the obstacles that we are presented with. It is also an opportunity to reimagine how we learn in new and different ways, so we would like to share with you the responses to a few frequently asked questions...
