Teta Hilsdon's Stoneware Pottery Mugs - Available Again!!Did you miss out on getting the first Teta Hilsdon Stoneware Pottery mug about 20 years ago? They were offered as part of the fundraising efforts for the (then) brand new playground. The photo is of the original mug. This year the Endowment Board is pleased to be able to offer a 2012 version, ready to be glazed and fired by Teta. The new limited edition (only 25 are being made) will be larger and more rounded in shape but with the same transparent blue glaze and same lettering style. Teta Hilsdon is a well-known Brattleboro artist whose son, Joshua Meserve Hilsdon, was a PCS student. We are privileged to be able to offer these beautiful mugs again and when they are gone, they are gone.

The Putney Central School Endowment, Inc. was established in 2008 for charitable educational purposes, and provides innovative academic and after school enrichment programs for the students of Putney Central. The Endowment's gifts are intended to enhance and supplement the education and resources offered to the students of Putney Central.
Putney Central takes pride in the rigorous academics, arts, music, physical education, special education and counseling offered in small classes by an impressive faculty.
Among the school's resources are a 176 acre forest with an extensive network of trails, Japanese and vegetable gardens, Asian Studies program, health and wellness program, and a variety of arts opportunities.
However, it is a challenge to provide comprehensive educational and enrichment programs that are within the scope of our annual, taxpayer - supported budget and still provide varied and innovative educational opportunities for all the children of Putney.
Please consider investing in Putney's youth by supporting the endowment with gifts of cash, stocks, products, or time. Your gift of community education support will help make Putney proud of the youth they are raising for many generations to come.
