The 2021-22 principals of our district junior/senior high schools collaborated and addressed City Commissioners (4/22/2021) and the Board of County Commissioners (4/27/2021). Together, they outlined their plans to welcome seventh and eighth grade students to their school campuses. JT Stout (Palatka Jr.-Sr. High School), Bryan Helms (Interlachen Jr.-Sr. High School), and Tim Adams (Crescent City Jr.-Sr. High School), shared plans to enhance academics, safety, and extracurricular activities/athletics with the new grade configuration. Our junior/senior high schools principals encourage students, families, and community members to reach out to them if there are any questions or concerns. #ProudtobePCSD

On Friday morning, April 17th, Interlachen High School JROTC cadets performed a food drive community service project, at First Baptist Church of Interlachen, feeding more than 200 families in need. Nealon Sears Jr., Senior Army Instructor of 'The Mighty Ram Battalion!', said, "I was so proud of how they (JROTC cadets) conducted themselves with such dignity, pride and discipline! They represented Interlachen High School very well! I received many compliments from parishioners as well as those receiving services. In fact, they would like for us to come back! I overheard several of our cadets mention how good it felt to be helping the community! That's what it's all about!” We could not be more proud of these cadets for representing their school in such a positive way and for their dedication in serving their community. #ProudtobePCSD

The Feed the Need Organization recently had a large donation of snack items that arrived with their normal shipment of pantry foods. The Organization was more than willing to share their supplies with our students that participated in the FSA/ELA Writing Exams last week. Feed the Need donated 2,915 snack items to various schools in our district. “Several administrators reached out to me a couple of weeks ago asking if the PCSD had community connections willing to help supply needed snacks to students during the long testing periods. My very first request to fulfil this need was to Denise Bramlitt with the Feed the Need of Putnam Organization which supplies weekend food to our students in need of this support.” "Becci" RL Motes, M. Ed., District Graduation Coach A heartfelt "THANK YOU" to Denise Bramlitt & The Feed the Need Organization for their tremendous support. It was greatly appreciated by all staff and students. #ProudtobePCSD
