Putnam Schools Bringing Back After School Archery

The Putnam County School System is bringing back its after school archery program after hearing teacher interest.

Extended Learning Programs Coordinator Brenda Hughett said there had been a struggle finding teachers certified to teach the program. However, Hughett said some interested teachers stepped up, took the training and will add something fun for students in after school programs.

“We like to offer these types of programs in our after school program,” Hughett said. “So that students who are staying after school because of academic concerns have some other initiative, some other incentive to participate.”

Hughett said the program will be new for Cookeville High School, Capshaw Elementary and Park View Elementary School. She said students who participate will be able to take part in tournaments and competitions.

Hughett said Archery will start after Labor Day and invitations will go out to families participating in the LEAPs and 21st Century Community Learning.
