Putnam Valley Elementary School

Dear PVES Families,

Voting Day is here! Be sure to vote in our Putnam Valley School District Vote on this Tuesday, May 21st, from 6 AM to 9 PM in our Elementary Cafeteria! Your children can participate in our Elementary Kids’ Vote in a special location in the cafeteria too! The students have been learning about the importance of Civic Engagement and elections, and they will be able to participate in a PVES election, choosing a special Field Day treat. The children can accompany you to the voting booths in the early morning hours or after school up until 9:00 PM. Voting stickers are ready for them! Thank you so much for voting. Your voices should be heard.

Our elementary students (only) will have a half-day of school on this Thursday, May 23rd. Dismissal will take place at 12:00 noon. There will be no school from Friday, May 24th through Tuesday, May 28th in honor of Memorial Day.

We are looking forward to the Fourth Grade Spring Concert on Wednesday, May 22nd, at 6:30 PM. The children are well prepared for this performance, and it is sure to be a wonderful show! Thank you to Mrs. Calhoun and Mrs. Bennett for their wonderful work with our students.

We are looking forward to our Annual Community Read tomorrow. Every elementary classroom has a scheduled visiting reader. Our students are so fortunate to attend school in such a loving and supportive community.

Enjoy the short week ahead. Thank you for your ongoing partnership.
