PCES Champion Spellers! Alicia Booth and Annie Grace Yarbrough
Jenna Mullis is the Superintendent’s Student of the Month for February 2015. She is in the 7th grade at Putnam County Middle School, her teachers are Mehul Gandhi, Sonya Banks and Julie Holloway.
Jenna is an excellent student in all content areas, and strives to do her very best. She stood out while on the Gifted Trip to New York last summer because she was always ready to help with the responsibilities that were necessary, but not necessarily fun, like taking attendance, waking roommates each morning and making sure everyone made it to breakfast and onto the bus for tours.
At school Jenna is an outstanding all around student, she has maintained a GPA of 4.0 since 1st grade. Jenna is a leader in the classroom and a model student; she never says no when it comes to helping her friends and classmates. Among many examples of her leadership and her “make things happen attitude”, while preparing for NHD fair competition, Jenna was the first one to volunteer to help her classmate finish their project even though they were competing against her, she worked on their project just as hard and with the same precision as she worked on her own project. She is very active in the classroom and asks out of the box, thought provoking questions on a consistent basis.
Jenna stays busy with extra-curricular activities as well. She has participated with PCMS math team, won 1st place in NHD group exhibit, attended a sewing class on Saturday with Beta Club to make pillowcases for children’s hospital, attended CSI classes during Summer Inspiration Program and was the manager of the PCMS softball team.
Jenna is a member of Junior Beta Club, and has attended Beta Club convention twice, in which she entered handmade jewelry competition twice and won 1st place once. Jenna participated in Quiz Bowl twice and came in 3rd place in statewide competition and has entered several essay contest and led club Spotlight entry.
She attends Liberty Chapel, is an active member of the Eatonton First Methodist Youth Group, a Junior Youth Fellowship volunteer and she volunteers at monthly food distribution programs. Last summer, Jenna helped babysit young children proving that she is mature and responsible enough for parents to trust her with their children.
It is with great confidence and honor that we nominate Jenna Mullis for Superintendent’s Student of the Month.
Last week, Tri-County EMC surprised 27 local teachers with $30,000 in educational grants. Since 2008, Tri-County Electric Membership Cooperative has provided nearly $160,000 in grants to local schools. Funded by unclaimed capital credits, the grants help teachers improve education in their classrooms through innovative projects that would otherwise not be funded. Georgia certified public or private school teachers in grades Pre-K through 12 in Baldwin, Jones, Putnam, Twiggs and Wilkinson counties qualify to apply.
Outside judges evaluated the 77 blind applications that were submitted for innovation, goals, objectives, student involvement and budget. A total of 27 grants were funded. Thanks to all teachers who applied in 2014-2015 and we look forward to seeing your applications in 2015-2016.
Our teachers have some "Bright Ideas" and four of them were recipients of Tri-County EMC's Bright Ideas Grant last week: Hollie Hardie- PCPS, Jannis Wallace - PCPS, Mary Sue McMichael - PCMS and Jennifer Deason - PCMS.
