All Putnam County Schools have partnered with the Putnam County Police Chiefs Association and Judges Keith Schierloh, Chad Niese, and Michael Borer to compete in a friendly competition which will also spread an anti-drug message. #MakeSomeNoiseAgainstDrugs is a program where each school’s student body creates an anti-drug video and designs its own spirit themed t-shirt that is branded with the program’s identifier, #MakeSomeNoiseAgainstDrugs. Videos are posted on each school’s Instagram account. The top three districts which receive the most “likes” for their video will receive additional funding for their prom and post-prom. Check out CGHS’ video here and make sure you “like” our video on Instagram!
Columbus Grove Schools recently began using a new service called Final Forms. The service allows parents to complete and sign enrollment, back-to-school, and athletic participation forms for their students electronically. It saves all of the information season-to-season and year-to-year so that parents don’t have to re-enter the same information over and over. This helps save staff time so that information doesn’t have to be entered in manually, and makes the information easily accessible for staff and coaches.
Emails have gone out to parents that will help you to create your account and begin entering information. If you have not yet seen an email, please check your spam folder, and if you can't find it, please contact Mr. Keehn and he can make sure we have the correct address on file. You can find more information and the instructions for getting started here.
Columbus Grove Schools recently released its Quality Profile Report.
