Welcome to the Pawling Elementary school community! At our school, we work hard to ensure a safe, nurturing, and academically challenging environment in which all students can benefit. With parents, educators and community working together, we are confident that your child will flourish.
Our goal at Pawling Elementary is to provide an excellent educational environment so that every child may reach his/her full potential. The Common Core Standards continue to be the focus of our curriculum development efforts throughout our school. An abundance of information regarding the implementation of the Common Core Standards in New York State can be found on the engageny.org website. Also, if you click on the curriculum tab on the left side of this page, you will be directed to specific information pertaining to Mathematics, English Language Arts, the 3rd and 4th grade NYS assessments, and other useful parent information on the Common Core. We encourage everyone to explore these rigorous standards.
At Pawling Elementary School we work as a team for each and every student. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any issues or concerns. We look forward to an outstanding and enjoyable year ahead!
Dr. Debra Kirkhus
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Next week, we will be starting our final marking period of the year. It is hard to believe that we are facing the home stretch. Please continue to check your child’s backpack regularly during this busy time of year.
This month we celebrated “Snackarooza”, which is a coordinated effort between our PTA and our Food Service Department in educating and exploring healthy snack options for our students. We had many parent volunteers help in preparing and delivering healthy snacks to all of our classrooms. Our PTA has arranged for our Scholastic Book Fair to take place from April 9 – 11. Family night is planned for Wednesday evening, April 10th, so please mark your calendars and plan on coming out that evening to shop for books with your children!
We held our incoming Kindergartener Parent Information Night on March 19th at 7pm. The night was well attended, and parents were given an opportunity to ask many questions of our administration, transportation director, and kindergarten teachers. We will be scheduling screenings for our incoming kindergarteners from April 24th – 26th. After their screening appointment, children and their families will be able to take a tour of our building and see our school in action. If you know of any friends or family members in our district who have children who will be 5 years old on or before December 1st, 2019, please let them know to call our school to get registration information, if they haven’t done so already.
We are in the heart of budget season, so please make every effort to stay informed. The district website will continue to post updated information regarding meeting dates, meeting minutes, podcasts and board presentations. Please mark your calendars for our District Budget vote that will take place in the Pawling Elementary School gym on Tuesday, May 21st.
