Dear Putnam Valley High School Families,

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the summer break. Congratulations to the Senior Class of 2024.  Our graduation ceremony was highlighted by our student speakers providing inspirational messages of empathy, embracing challenges with courage, and the hope and optimism of the future.  Our combined choir and TempoMental groups led by Charles Garcia and Reece Emery performed an inspiring rendition of Seasons of Change from the musical Rent.  As we gear up for the next academic year, I wanted to inform you of some important updates and reminders.

The end-of-year report cards for all students are being mailed home this week. Please keep an eye out for these in your mailboxes, as they provide a comprehensive overview of your child’s academic progress for the past school year.

For our juniors and seniors preparing for college, please note that transcripts will also be mailed out this week. These transcripts are crucial for college admissions and scholarships, so please review them carefully and notify us if you have any concerns.  Please be advised that the final transcripts for seniors have been forwarded to their respective colleges.

Additionally, the results for IB and AP exams have been released. To access your scores, please log in to the respective IB and College Board websites. If you encounter any issues or have questions about your IB scores, IB Coordinator, Vin DeGregorio, will be available throughout the summer to assist you.

The summer reading list for all grade levels is attached to this letter. Summer reading is a valuable part of our academic program and helps students stay engaged in learning during the break. The summer reading list can also be found on the PVHS Website on the right side. We encourage you to support your child in completing the assigned readings before the start of the new school year.
