North Putnam Community School Corporation

Superintendent's Message

Dear Parents,

 I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know the good work our teachers, instructional assistants, secretaries, bus drivers, cooks and support staff have done this year. Our teachers and staff have certainly had many times throughout the year they could have been distracted by the continuing budget crises at both the state and local levels, reduction-in-force notices, scarce resources, H1N1 and uncertainty about the future of public education in general. However, our staff members have never taken their eyes off the most important mission in our corporation, the education of our students. We are fortunate to have staff at every level of our corporation who are dedicated to providing high quality instruction for each and every student.  Our teachers, principals, and a variety of support staff at both the school and corporation levels are working hard every day to ensure that all of our students are challenged and achieving at high levels in a safe and caring environment.  We are indeed fortunate to have such a dedicated and committed group of people working in the North Putnam Community School Corporation, particularly at this critical time in public education. We are also fortunate to continue to receive invaluable support from our parents and our community even in the face of many challenges during this very difficult time.

 Thank you for making 2009-2010 a successful school year, a year that continues to echo what makes North Putnam a great corporation—staff who are compassionate and caring about students, who believe that all students can succeed, and who are focused on making decisions that are always in the best interest of students. Whatever the unknown financial obstacles that may come our way next year, of one thing I am sure, that all of us who make up the North Putnam educational community will collectively handle them.

 Finally, let me wish all of you an enjoyable summer with many opportunities to relax with family and friends!
