March 15, 2018: The Putnam City Schools Foundation Stands with Teachers

The Putnam City Schools Foundation stands with our district’s teachers in pressing the Oklahoma Legislature to find a revenue stream for both salary increases and adequate funding for our schools. We have seen firsthand the effect that funding cuts have had on our district, from a loss of qualified teachers, to reductions in programming for our students.

For decades, people have chosen to teach in Putnam City because of strong professional development and a sense of community in our buildings, but this will not continue if our state does not find a recurring revenue stream. In order for Putnam City to remain the district of excellence for which it is known, we must continue to find reasonable solutions to this funding crisis, and welcome the opportunity to support the district’s efforts to allow teachers the time needed to advocate for their students.

Jan. 3, 2018: Alumni Update

If you are a Putnam City Alumni, you may have received a postcard that does not look like it is from us asking you to update your personal information for a directory. Rest assured it is legitimate!!

We contracted with a third party for the creation of alumni directories for each of the three high schools. It has been several years since either Putnam City High School or Putnam City West High School had a directory done, and Putnam City North has never had one. We thought the Putnam City Foundation would be an appropriate place to get this codified. 

There is no obligation to participate, of course. It does not cost anything to give your information, only to purchase a directory or other items they may offer you. We do not receive any funds from the sale of those items. 

There should be an online option to update provided to you at some point.

We apologize in advance for any confusion, and truly hope you can help us connect! 

Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
