Putnam Valley Elementary School

Dear PVES Families,

Happy Friday!  I would like to thank the parents of students in Grades 1 and 2 for attending our busy Back to School Night this week!  It was a wonderful evening of district, building, and curriculum information, and our teachers worked hard to be prepared to communicate the important highlights of the current school year and schedules with you.  Please be sure that you have signed up for our parent/teacher conferences in November.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, we want to hear from you.  We look forward to a positive and productive year ahead!

Our school nurse, Kathy Hill, is reminding us that this year, New York state has made some changes regarding physical examination requirements.  Children entering Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 3 are now required to submit a physical exam from their doctor.  Any exam dated on or after September 1, 2017 would be accepted.  Physical examination forms can be downloaded from the school website, www.pvcsd.org.

Please mark your calendars for the Putnam Valley Education Foundation’s Color Run on Sunday, September 30th, at 2:00 PM!  We are all looking forward to a wonderful, fun-filled event, with lots of color and laughs!  Please also be sure to also check the Putnam Valley PTA website at www.putnamvalleypta.org for volunteer opportunities and calendar events.  We welcome the chance to involve our community in so much that we do, and we thank you for your time and efforts!

School Picture Day is October 1st!  Let’s get those smiles ready.

Enjoy the beautiful fall weekend ahead.  Autumn officially begins this weekend, and our fabulous students are already settled into their rewarding learning schedule for a bright and happy school year.

Ms. Podesta
