Family Fun Fitness Night to Benefit Katie Cobb

Scott Teays is a Fuel Up to Play 60 School, and it's our goal to help encourage and instill healthy lifestyle choices within the lives of our students and families.  We are excited to host our very first Family Fun Fitness Night this Friday, May 19th at Winfield High School from 6:00-8:00.  Mrs. Harper has worked with our student Fuel Up to Play 60 team to plan and organize the event.  It will provide a great opportunity for you to enjoy games and activities as a family.  All proceeds from this event will go to benefit Katie Cobb, an eighth grade student at Winfield Middle School who is battling Hodgkins Lymphoma.  If you have a Team Katie t-shirt, please wear it!

Activities include: basketball, kickball, capture the flag, corn hole, volleyball, relay races, go noodles, jump rope, and hula hoops.

What you need to know:

  • Enter through the new section on the left front of the building (near the auxiliary gym).

  • Cost: $5.00 per family- additional donations will be accepted for the Cobb family if you wish to donate more.

  • Water will be available for $1.00, also to benefit the Cobb family.

  • A parent or guardian must attend.  This is not a drop off event.  

Fifth Grade Talent Show and Awards Presentation

We have lots of Tiger talent to showcase! Parents, please join us this Friday, May 19th at 8:00 a.m. for the fifth grade talent show.  We will follow with an awards presentation, and conclude with a cupcake reception.  We hope to see you there!

Third Grade Volcano Eruption

Our third grade will have their annual Volcano Eruption on Wednesday, May 31st at 1:30 on the playground.  Parents, please enter through the gate on the Dairy Queen side of the building beginning at 1:30.  Parents will NOT need to sign in at the office unless your child has a very large volcano that requires assistance to carry.  Siblings may NOT be signed out for this event.  If you wish to take your 3rd grader home with you afterward and have an additional child(ren) from another grade level to pick up, please send a note to school the day of the event letting your child’s teacher know he or she will be pick-up, and they will be sent to the back door pick-up area.  

Report Cards

Report cards will be distributed on June 1st. Teacher assignments for the 2017-2018 school year will be listed on the bottom of the card unless you are moving or unassigned while awaiting Out of Zone approval.

For those not planning on being here on June 1st, please bring a self-addressed envelope to your child’s teacher so grades can be mailed.

             Field Day

Field Day will take place on May 26th at Winfield High School for grades 3-5 beginning at 9:00.  We will travel by school bus to WHS where we will utilize the football field for our activities.  Students will have the option of purchasing a school bagged lunch which will include: hotdog, chips, apple, carrots, and water.  We will utilize the regular lunch billing system for all students wishing to have a school bagged lunch.  Students may also bring a bagged lunch from home.  Items will also be available for purchase through the concession stand at Winfield High School.  All proceeds will benefit the STE Physical Education program.  

Teachers will be in charge of signing out their students to parents that wish to check out their child during or after Field Day.  Please DO NOT take your child from WHS without first signing him or her out with the teacher.  Each student must have a signed permission slip to attend.  Permission slips will be sent home soon and are due to your child’s teacher by Wednesday, May 24th.

                    Putnam Co Drug Testing

Parents of 5th grade students:  PCS has a random student drug testing policy in place for students that choose to participate in extra privileges such as athletics and other activities. A brochure explaining the policy in detail, as well as a consent form, will be sent home with your child.  The policy is in place in order to undermine the effects of peer pressure and give our children an additional reason to ‘just say no’. Please sign and return to your child’s teacher, if you would like them to participate in extra activities next year at the middle school.

Parent Technology Survey

Each school in Putnam County is asking parents to take a technology survey to help evaluate current resources and make decisions about the direction of technology in the future.  The survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete, and we would greatly appreciate your input.  The survey can be found at:

Morning Drop Off Reminders

*The first car to arrive to STE each morning (before doors open) should pull to the gate.

*All cars should pull forward to the yellow line when possible so that 4-5 cars can unload at a time.

*Adults remain in the vehicle.

*When traffic is congested, turn right instead of left at the DQ to keep traffic moving.

*Be courteous and let someone out at the DQ- this also keeps traffic moving.
