We believe that Puterbaugh Upper Elementary is awesome. There is a plethora of activities happening daily at our school. Here are just a few of the things we believe make us awesome:

  • STEAM - If you do not know what this is, you are definitely missing out on an amazing learning experience. Through the lenses of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics, the students develop and practice through a hands-on approach. From LEGO building challenges to science experiments, our STEAM class is assisting the students with their 21st Century Skills of collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication. 
  • Character Club - By condoning good character, we reward students for showing good character traits with our Character Club winners. The homeroom teachers pick a student every month that has exceptional behavior and displays our word of the month within their daily actions. These students have the opportunity to eat lunch at our school with their parents/guardians on stage in the cafeteria. They are also provided an, “All About Me” poster that will be filled out and displayed throughout the year.

At Puterbaugh Upper Elementary, we believe that excellence is the key to our students’ success. We feel that providing them with the skills necessary to succeed includes a team of teachers and administrators working together to make them reach their goals and dreams.
