Putnam Valley Elementary School

Dear PVES Families,

September is here! Welcome back to the 2023-2024 school year! We are so excited to get this year started, and it is sure to be a great year of growth and learning for your child. We have been busy at PVES throughout the summer getting the classrooms and facilities all ready for a fresh start. School starts on Tuesday, September 5th, with the official school day running from 9:12 AM to 3:20 PM. Be sure to get lots of rest this weekend!

All students have now received their class placement information for the school year. Parents of students in Grades 1 through 4 should mark their calendars for our Back-to-School Nights, which will be held on Monday, September 11th (Grades 3 & 4), and Tuesday, September 12th (Grades 1 & 2). Parents will be welcome to arrive at PVES at 6:30 on those evenings to have time to meet our Special Area teachers and some of our Professional Support Staff. Our full Parent meeting will begin at 7:00 in the Auditorium on both nights.

Please be sure to check the Weekly Attachments to see some of our upcoming events. Thank you to our PTA for making so much of this possible. We are all so excited to be working together to make it the best year yet!

Enjoy the long weekend. Thank you so much for your support and positive communication.

Dr. Margaret Podesta
