Dear Putnam Valley HS Parents/Guardians,

As we approach Memorial Day, let us take a moment to remember and honor the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. This holiday is not just a time for relaxation, but a chance to reflect on the freedoms we enjoy and the courage of those who have defended them.  As you drive around town you can see the banners of our hometown military heroes and the faces of so many men and women who went through our school system and served in the armed forces.  I am overwhelmed with joy knowing they served our country and represent Putnam Valley.

Enjoy your time with family and friends, and take a moment to appreciate the significance of this day and thank someone for their service to our country.

We are in the home stretch of the school year.  The May IB/AP exams are complete!  171 students took 15 exams, writing 515 papers in 14 days of testing.  This was quite an undertaking for our students, especially seniors, who staved off senioritis and worked hard through the end.  We also had 96 freshmen and sophomores taking exams in 4 AP courses.  We are so proud of our students and staff for embracing an educational culture that places academic rigor at the forefront of our community.

Midpoint of Quarter 4

May 23rd marks the midpoint of the 4th quarter.  Teachers will update grades and comments.  Please take a look at your child’s progress and attendance.  We encourage you to contact your child’s teacher with questions or concerns.
