A Note From Ms. Margaret Podesta

April 20, 2017

Dear PVES Families,

I hope that you all enjoyed the beautiful spring break!  We have now begun the fourth quarter of this wonderful school year, and the months ahead will certainly be busy ones!  Our students are making great strides in all areas of their learning, and we look forward to continuing to support this progress throughout the end of the school year.  If you have any questions about your child’s third quarter Progress Report, please contact the classroom teacher directly.  It is important that we maintain open and clear communication, especially as we prepare for the next school year.

Attached to this week’s Weekly Word is the Parent Information Sheet that we are collecting for students currently in grades K through 3.  These sheets help us to get input from home that may help us to place your children in their classes for next year.  We are not looking for specific teacher requests.  However, we do ask about learning styles, group dynamics, and goals you have for your child academically, socially, or behaviorally.  Thank you for returning these sheets to the main office by May 5th.

Thank you to the PTA for providing us with another engaging literature-based assembly today titled, “Miss Nelson is Missing.”  Our second and third grade classes enjoyed this musical theater performance this morning.  We always appreciate all that the PTA does for our school!  Please volunteer to help with the PTA in any way you can.  We always need more helpers!

The 3rd and 4th Grade PTA Movie Night will take place next Friday, April 28th, in our PVES Auditorium.  We look forward to this wonderful community event, where our third and fourth grade students can socialize and enjoy a great movie together.

Next week will be another exciting one at PVES!  On Tuesday, April 25th, (rain date 4/26), our fourth grade classes will participate in our second annual “Revolutionary War Reenactment” throughout the day.  History will come to life for our fourth graders as they take part in authentic activities and learning stations celebrating their classroom study of this historical time.  Thank you to the Putnam Valley Education Foundation for the grants they have made possible for this amazing event.

On Thursday, April 27th, our third grade classes will perform their Recorder Concert during the day for students, and at 7:00 in the evening for their families.  We look forward to this very special musical event, and we thank Mrs. Calhoun for her wonderful work with the children.

Enjoy the weekend ahead.  We have had such a stretch of beautiful weather, and it is a great time to keep studying our school-wide theme of nature with your children.  Please check our school calendar scroll carefully.  There are many great events on the agenda!

Ms. Podesta
