PVES PantherS



We are excited to welcome students back for the 2020-2021 school year.  This year is going to be very different than many other years.  However, our theme this year is "We are all in this together...no matter the distance".  Parents have the option to choose to send students to school for in-person learning or elect to sign them up for our distance learning program, called Panther Valley Learning Network (PVLN). 

You can watch a Youtube video from Mr. Palazzo, our building principal, explaining the reopening procedures here:

If you would like for your child to move into our online program or return back to school from our online program, please e-mail Mr. Palazzo at palazzor@panthervalley.org to discuss options.

If you recently moved into our district and need to register your child, please follow these instructions.  For kindergarten, come to the elementary school between 9:00 and 1:00 each day to pick up registration information.  If your child is in grades 1-12, call the Intermediate School at 570-645-2175 and speak to Mrs. Gauronsky

--------------------------------------------------

Panther Valley Elementary School’s vision is to provide a clear path for academic achievement by meeting the needs of each individual student. We are committed to seeing students model positive behavior, a strong work ethic, and a belief in oneself. Collaboration and communication among school, home, and the community is essential for student success.

At PVES, our English Language Arts curriculum, uses Fountas & Pinnell Classroom as a framework.  Students participate in a read aloud, shared read, guided reading, and independent reading each day.  This allows students to receive direct instruction in comprehension skills and phonics skills, as well as more individualized support in a small group setting.  We have a partnership with the American Reading Company to provide students with independent reading materials.  This program is sponsored by Ametek Plastics Inc.

In math, we use the MyMath curriculum.  This set of instructional materials has a technology component to support student learning.  You are able to access your students' materials from home to help them succeed in math.

We have a Positive Behavior Support Program at the school.  This program encourages students to be Cool Cats!  Our three character traits that are taught throughout the school are Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful.  Students are given direct instruction on what these expectations look like across all settings.  Students are given Cool Cat tickets when they demonstrate behavior that shows one or more of these expectations.  Each day, one student is selected as the Cool Cat of the Day by a staff member.  This student has their picture taken with the principal and shared out on our Facebook page.  They also get a positive phone call home from the principal.

If there is anything I can do to help you or your child, please do not hesitate to give me a call at the school.  The best way to reach me is to e-mail palazzor@panthervalley.org


Sincerely,
Robert Palazzo
Elementary Principal
