Hoosier Family of Readers

Did you know that you can access thousands of free books through the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) Hoosier Family of Readers program?  The IDOE has made it possible for families to utilize the myON program for downloading books.  There are picture books, chapter books, graphic novels, tons of non-fiction choices–and all at varying reading levels.  These books can be downloaded anywhere and at anytime, as long as you have an internet connection.  Books can even be downloaded for offline reading at a later time.

These resources are available through the end of the year–so make sure to take advantage of this great, free resource while it lasts!

Things to Know/Do:

  • Now hiring substitute teachers! Please contact Linda Dusek at the administration building if you are interested in substitute teaching and she will help you start the application process and discuss qualifications.
  • Do your friends and neighbors know how to find our weekly updates? Even if your neighbors don’t have kids in school tell them about our weekly updates so they can hear the great news of what happens at PTSC!
  • Every Wednesday is a 30-minute delayed start. If we have a 2-hour delay, students will arrive at school 2 hours after the regular start time for the building.
  • We are also looking for bus drivers to drive our extra-curricular runs. If you are interested, please apply online. It’s a great way to earn some money and attend extra-curricular events!
