PV Schools

Dear Putnam Valley Community:

We have been enjoying the celebrations of moving-up ceremonies and watching the PVHS Class of 2023 receive their diplomas. We are so very proud of our students, their eagerness to learn and grow, their resilience in the face of challenges, and their many accomplishments over the course of this school year.  Congratulations to all!

As we wrap up the school year, I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and healthy summer.  It was another banner year in Putnam Valley. The implementation of a new reading program at Putnam Valley Elementary School has improved our alignment between grade levels and helped standardize our instructional delivery and resources. The Middle School has moved from the feasibility stage to being considered an IB candidate school and we have talented teachers ready to lead this work as programme coordinators.  At Putnam Valley High School, students continue to take advantage of the rigorous learning opportunities available to them and challenge themselves through the completion of their senior year.

Outside of the classrooms, students have continued to excel through athletics, music, and the arts. Student performances concluded with standing ovations, awards and honors were plentiful, and athletic achievements reached new heights.

Recent settlements with both the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) and the Putnam Valley Federation of Teachers (PVFT) recognize the efforts of our dedicated staff while ensuring financial stability for the district moving forward.

Looking forward to next year, we will be welcoming our first class of incoming students from the Garrison School District.  As our High School prepares for its reauthorization as an IB World School, our Middle School will be taking the next steps toward becoming in IB Middle Years Programme.  Our Elementary School will be welcoming Carly Robey as their new Assistant Principal as they continue the amazing work that has catapulted our achievement scores on state assessments to the top of the region.

The students of Putnam Valley are surrounded by talented educators who deeply care about their social, emotional, and academic well-being. The summer is a time to not only relax but to reflect on all that was accomplished over the past year.  Even better days are ahead for the Putnam Valley School District, and we remain proud of all we have accomplished.

Stay tuned for our end-of-the-year newsletter coming soon, where we will highlight the many achievements and celebrations that have taken place over the last several weeks.

Thank you to our dedicated teachers, staff, and parents for your support throughout the year.
