Thank you for visiting the PVES web page.  This is a wonderful place for our children to start their education.  We have a dedicated, hard working, and passionate staff that do their best to enrich the academic and social-emotional learning of all our students.

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.
