Welcome to the new Putnam County Guidance Counselor's Website!!  My name is Tyler Ellena, and I am the new Guidance Counselor at Putnam County High School.   My mission as school counselor
 at Putnam County High School is to provide a comprehensive counseling program that attends to the personal/social, academic, and career preparation/college planning needs of all students. My goal is to promote
 a commitment to life-long learning, personal, and academic growth and to aid students in becoming responsible, culturally aware, and productive members of society. My mission and my goal will be supported and further strengthened by consultation with teachers, staff, administrators, parents, and community advocates.

Check out the features of the website!!  

Underneath the banner at the top of the page are the four tabs for this site.  The first is simply the home button, which will bring you back to this page.  The "Home" page will be a bulletin board (along with Google Classroom) for up coming events and activities.  The second tab is the "Counseling Calendar" the calendar shows upcoming events for the month and year.  It includes due dates for things like scholarships or applications.  It is important to check the calendar frequently because new information will be added regularly.  The third tab "Counseling Documents" is for all of the forms you may need from the Guidance department.  There are currently our scholarships that are awarded to Putnam County Seniors as well as other documents you may need (such as College Visit Forms).  This page is also changing regularly so check back for new forms or scholarships.
