    Dear Pawling Students, Families, and Staff,

    Allow me to begin by sharing that I am not writing to you in regard to any emergency, incident, specific concern raised, or even coronavirus.  I am writing to you to enlist your support, whether you are a student, a staff member, or a parent/guardian, in helping to ensure that all of our students continue to learn and grow into responsible citizens in a civil, respectful and polite environment within our schools.


    Over the past three years, our Board of Education has adopted goals for our district that include a commitment to civic engagement.  Our teachers have gained expertise and experience in teaching students to engage in critical thinking, understand the perspectives and biases of all types of media and texts, consider the stories and histories presented, and the ones that may be missing or unheard.  Given the current state of civil discourse in our country, I am grateful to our Board of Education for highlighting the value of civic engagement for our young citizens and the importance of their voices being engaged and heard as well as the capacity of our teachers to facilitate such discussion.


    I write to share with you that our expectation is that students will use these tools to learn, to grow, to communicate, to evaluate and to understand.  We will continue to work to ensure that while perspectives and ideas will be analyzed, challenged, and critically examined, the inherent humanity of all students and people must be protected from discrimination and denigration.  


    We have used our principles of safety, equity, diversity, and communication to navigate a tremendous common challenge in re-opening our schools.  The community has been a critical partner in the success we have had so far and will be as we navigate challenges ahead.  Those same principles must guide our traverse of a challenging time in the life of our community and nation.  I ask you to join us in helping students to understand the responsibility we share as citizens to participate and engage in civic discourse politely, respectfully, and thoughtfully.

    I thank each of you for your support of the school community we cultivate together.

    Estimados Estudiantes, Familias y Personal de Pawling:

    Permítanme comenzar compartiendo que no les escribo con respecto a ninguna emergencia, incidente, preocupación específica planteada o incluso el virus corona.  Le escribo para obtener su apoyo, ya sea usted estudiante, miembro del personal o padre/tutor, para ayudar a garantizar que todos nuestros estudiantes continúen aprendiendo y se conviertan en ciudadanos responsables de manera civilizada, respetuosa y cortés en el ambiente de nuestras escuelas.

    Durante los últimos tres años, nuestra Junta de Educación ha adoptado metas para nuestro Distrito que incluyen un compromiso con la participación cívica.  Nuestros maestros han adquirido conocimientos y experiencia para enseñar a los estudiantes a participar en pensamiento crítico, comprender las perspectivas y sesgos de todo tipo de medios y textos, considerar los cuentos y las historias presentadas y las que no han sido reconocidas o no han sido escuchadas.  Dado el estado actual del discurso civil en nuestro país, agradezco a nuestra Junta de Educación por resaltar el valor del compromiso cívico para nuestros jóvenes ciudadanos y la importancia de que sus voces sean comprometidas y escuchadas, así como la capacidad de nuestros maestros para facilitar tal discusión.

    Le escribo para compartir con ustedes que nuestra expectativa es que los estudiantes usen estas herramientas para aprender, crecer, comunicar, evaluar y comprender.  Continuaremos trabajando para asegurar que mientras las perspectivas e ideas sean analizadas, desafiadas y examinadas críticamente, la humanidad inherente de todos los estudiantes y personas debe ser protegida de discriminación y denigración.

    Hemos utilizado nuestros principios de seguridad, equidad, diversidad y comunicación para navegar un tremendo desafío común al reabrir nuestras escuelas.  La comunidad ha sido un socio fundamental en el éxito que hemos tenido hasta ahora y lo será mientras navegamos por los desafíos que tenemos por delante.  Esos mismos principios deben guiar nuestra travesía por una época desafiante en la vida de nuestra comunidad y nación.  Le pido que se una a nosotros para ayudar a los estudiantes a comprender la responsabilidad que compartimos como ciudadanos de participar y comprometerse en el discurso cívico de manera cortés, respetuosa y reflexiva.

    Le agradezco a cada uno de ustedes por su apoyo a los jóvenes que compartimos y a la comunidad escolar que cultivamos juntos.

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 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!
