See Something, Say Something!

As you may recall reading a couple weeks ago, we made several additions to school safety over the summer.  We have prioritized our School Resource Officers and hopefully you have noticed them when you have been to our buildings.  Safety continues to be a top priority for PTSC!

We need everyone to be part of school safety.  What we share with students, but is a great message for all of us all the time, is that if we see something we should say something.  It’s important for all of us to be aware of our surroundings and report when something doesn’t seem quite right.

For our students, we tell them to talk to their teachers, or an adult at their school to get help.  For parents, you may start with a teacher or if it is something you notice at an event you may want to talk to the Athletic Director or Administrator.  School safety involves each of us!  Thank you for being part of our team!


PTSC Standouts:

Mrs. Wotherspoon is our teacher standout this week!  As you know, we spent the summer working on BGE and BGMS completing many projects (read about them here!).  Mrs. Wotherspoon was in over the weekend and noticed an issue with our cooling system. Her quick reporting of the issue helped us to have the building ready for students on Monday morning–getting the chiller up and running again!  Way to go, Mrs. Wotherspoon!  Thanks for seeing something and saying something!

Do you have a standout to include in this section?  Email PTSC standouts to Dr. Schmidt at to make sure your standout is included.  She counts on you to send her updates all can celebrate PTSC student accomplishments!

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.
